Starting 30 Days of Creativity - #1

Last month an amazingly talented friend of mine (Ms. Christy Riopel) started an adventure called "30 days of Art Pieces" - She made a commitment to create one piece of art every single day for 30 days.  She was challenged to do this by another amazing Canadian woman/artist/extraordinary soul - Ms. Karen Ellis, who read about the original idea by an American artist Ms. Nancy Wier HERE .  The concept is to just make something every day for 30 days.  It doesn't have to be finished - it doesn't have to be pretty - you don't even have to like it... it's about the process; it's about tapping into that creative energy inside you and allowing it free reign because you don't have TIME to think about the project, analyze the project, or even change what you start.  Just the sheer volume of a project-a-day will make you to go places and do things that you  had no idea were inside you - you may even surprise yourself with what you produce.

So I am jumping on board and going to create something every single day for the next 30 days ... and I am going to share it with all of you... (maybe - grin)... remember it doesn't have to be pretty or even finished... But This is Number 1 and it is finished and I LOVE it - especially for Halloween... I am not going to go into a lot of detail about the process for these pieces - I am just going to share them and maybe give you some close ups so you can see the detail.

Using Dyan Reaveley and Frog's Whiskers stamps; dylusions sprays and Lots of Doodling in black and white I just kept layering and layering and in a suprisingly short time I was done!

But I am totally immersing myself into the process - my hands are  permanently stained and my studio is in a constant state of chaos ... and I am HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY!

So now Ms. Nancy Wier started it, Karen Ellis Challenged Christy Riopel, who Challenged me... who is now Challenging YOU... and make sure you let me know here or on Facebook if you take up this challenge because I want to follow your journey TOOOO!
Thanks for stopping by to share again with me today... 

Happy Creating... Scrapbook Lynne

    1. Thanks for the lovely comment Ali - the secret to the colors is knowing when to STOP when spraying with your dylusions... it took a while tfor me to learn when to STOP spritzing that one time too many... Grin

  5. I adore the happiness that oozes out of your creations - even before I read what you've written, the image just shouts out. They are truly happy images. I like the idea of creating a piece of art every day. I want to do that, in a different way to what I'm doing now...to create for myself and explore, rather than create for customers. I think my journey will have to wait until Christmas is over, though, as creating for customers (at this time of year, especially!) does pay the bills. And that's something to be grateful for, too, I know!

    1. Susie - it's a wee canvas - only 4x6 but that helps me to feel less intimidated when I just have to start! If you ever decide to give this 30-days of art a try... PLEASE let me know... I absolutely want to follow your journey!!
