on day 30 of 30
so I have been out in the garden, clearing – I think that counts as being creative:
that bag is big let me tell you – my garden/yard is tiny but we get oh so many leaves from the trees out front – not complaining as I love waking up to those trees – a lot of work never the less – but how lucky are we to be having such hot sunshine at this time of year!
I have made a very quick outline which may become the template for the People of the Stone. I wanted something very, very simple which would have the possible feel/shape of a standing stone:
Not sure yet how many of these folk will appear or where – definitely the two, Iolite and Malachite who have already come into the story – Iolite is a beautiful violet-blue usually and Malachite is green so I shall use either threads couched or fabric in those colours.
Well, this is the end of the ’30 days of get your art on’ challenge and what a great experience it has proved to be. Thank you Traci for the proverbial and well needed kick up the bum! I have made the time each day to do at least 30 minutes of arting as requested at the outset, most days much more. Although I create on a regular basis I tend to have lapses where I do nothing at all – but 30 minutes is such a small amount of time and I have demonstrated to myself that, even on my worst days, I can do that much – whether it be a doodle, some stitching, planning, sketching – whatever form it takes – I can do it. What is more – I feel so much better for it, so I intend to continue – month by month and try to blog as frequently as I have this month – that adds to the discipline of working every day, knowing I ‘have’ to show and tell :).
It has been fun and congratulations to all those other artists out there who took up the challenge … pats on the back all round .
