With the end of The 100 Day Project, 2019, getting closer and closer, I thought I’d pull out a post from last year. From July 11, 2018, the day I wrapped up my 100 days of tangling. It was a small celebration for sure! Hahaha!
Last year I used the Baby Leda Pocket Sketchbook from Leda Art Supply to complete the project in. Above you see my 100 pieces of art for last year’s project. A friend pointed me to TurboCollage.com and I used the free section to make this collage showing all 100 pieces. A little blurry, but they are all there. 100 days in a nutshell, so to speak. I will probably do this again in a couple weeks when this year’s project is complete.
This piece was for the last two days of 2018’s project. Part of it was day 99 and the finished piece was day 100. I just tried to tangle some each day. I tried to be realistic with my expectations. I tried to tangle 5 – 15 minutes each day. Some days were harder than others, but I figured anything was better than nothing. Overall The 100 Day Project is a great idea, a great motivator to get us into a routine of making art every day. But it is really hard to stay focused for 100 days and keep going with it. After awhile you just want your life back. Last year I specifically said I would not do this project again. That I would cheer on those who wanted to do it. This year I tried to discourage my group from participating but there were so many who wanted to that I caved. Hahahaha! And I felt obligated, like I had to participate. Next year I will try to remember that the world won’t stop turning if I don’t join in. I can just cheer from the sidelines.
I made this last year to celebrate and several members of my group Tangle All Around posted this on their pages. I will probably make one for this year as well. I am truly proud of each person working their way through this journey. It isn’t for the faint of heart. It is a huge undertaking and commitment. Kudos to those still trucking along on day #84. We are almost there. And if you are one of the ones that has given up or life has stepped in and taken over – that is ok. Be proud of what you accomplished. It is alright. I promise.
