Hello and Good Day to You!
Thanks for stopping by Orange Spiral Arts.
Have you heard of The 100 Day Project by Elle Luna? It's kind of an Instagram thing, but that doesn't mean you can't participate if you are not on Instagram. All you need is an idea and someone to share your progress with!
I have chosen the hashtag #100daysofmarksonpaper for my 100 Day Project. I am already a day or two behind, but I'm not going to sweat it. I can make up my mark making time fairly easily. (Note: if you get behind, it's OKAY! Go easy on yourself and continue where you left off. We are all busy, and no one is perfect!)
Day 1/100-Sharpie Paint Pen used to create scallops.
Day 2/100-Mechanical pencil used to make quick Xs on the paper. (See those circles above my paper? That's the fun tracking sheet created by Teresa aka @stargardener and @rightbrainplanner).
(For those who are new to the symbols and signs- # is a hashtag, which helps people both tag their photos and is helpful for searching other people's photos on Instagram. The @ symbol identifies the person's name or account. For example, my name on Instagram is @brianacreates, and some common hashtags I use are #orangespiralarts, #mixedmedia, #artjournaling, #100daysofmarksonpaper, etc. I hope that is helpful information.)
Day 3/100-Prince died on Thursday, April 21, 2016. I was feeling shocked and sad about it. I decided to make some "purple rain" using purple acrylic paint and my fingerprint to express my feelings and make my marks.
Day 4/100-Dye-na-flow in green with a "giant" bamboo brush pen
Day 5/100-Red liquid watercolor and a cat whisker
I am experimenting with my mark making. I am likely going to use one sheet of paper for the 100 days, and I am quite curious to see what it will look like by the end.
Today is technically Day 7/100. It's not too late to start, if you feel inspired to do so! The 100 Day Project goes through July 27, 2016.
