The 100 day project overtook my posts on my daily Moleskine, but it didn’t overtake the actual project. I have to say that creating little daily art spaces in my Moleskine diary has been a joy this year.
I literally put anything in there that I want to. I may be learning a new technique and a page will be used for practice or I may find a sticker which will be added or someone will send me a postcard and that will be stapled onto that day.
It is becoming a record of the year as well as a creative practice.
April’s pages were all made using Rae Missigman’s prompts for her Mark Making Monthly challenge. It is always nice to have a jumping off point for each day.
May was back to me and I made marks, stuck stuff down and splashed colour about!
These ladies were in a discarded library book so I cut them out and gave them new accessories.
There is always something to draw and paint, these vintage tins hold my pins (Sucrets) and a selection of mini pearl buttons and some marbles (Boots).
Found items such as feathers are always a nice thing to paint and record. I was making a collage in my art journal so I popped one in my Moleskine too.
Practicing a new technique and painting a lady from a magazine using my sumi brush and pink ink.
National Geographic magazines of all ages are great for images. I couldn’t resist this bird.
Or these costumed characters.
Horoscopes are always good for a spot of entertainment and I often rip them out of a magazine to keep. The little lady with the dogs under a ‘scribble tree’ which was one of my 100 day project ideas.
I am often found in the woods hunting for treasure with my teen, so many pages in my Moleskine have sketches of what we found, I had to have a couple of run ups at the brooch!
I was playing with marbling my own paper and made a moon, I added a multi colored hair lady and a fortune from a fortune cookie.
More technique practice.
Half way through the year and an already bulging diary!
I am very much enjoying this daily project and love how my Moleskine is filling up with colour and ideas.
Are you doing a daily challenge this year? How’s it going?
Happy Wednesday x
I love the costumed characters and the newly accessorised ladies! Your journals are always so joyful to look at, Clare!
I am really enjoying this and it is not a chore at all which I worried it might be! Thanks x
