Project 365 week 5: creation journal

Into week 5, a little delayed in posting but keeping busy and creative.

Day 1:
Painted a bird I saw on Pinterest. I was browsing through “making Monday’s” blog and clicked the link to her Pinterest wall. I was inspired by her folder “to make.” (making Mondays website here)

Day 2:
I snuck off to a hotel with some girlfriends and we had a kid-free girl’s night. Took the night off from the project.

Day 3:
Went to my favourite art supply store and picked up a few new pens and random supplies. My art store rule is:
-Buy something you actually need
-buy something in a colour you don’t already have
-buy something you’ve never tried before

So I bought a new pen to replace one that’s almost used up, a new colour of watercolour paint, and a calligraphy pen. I got a few different papers and some paintbrushes too.

Day 4:
Tried out the calligraphy pen. Not such a great first try. Think I need a different ink. My mom has one that I think will work so I’ll need to borrow it.

Day 5:
Redesigned a birth announcement for a friend of a friend. Hope they like it!

Day 6:
After the day I had, I think I need to invent a new drink. That’s where my creativity is bringing me today.
Maybe a Shirley temple with a vanilla vodka twist?

Day 7:
I didn’t “create” anything per say, but I did use my right brain to read a good book. Sorry, had to unwind and relax the past few days. Will get back at it soon!

Week 3 of right-brain project

Week 3 of my creation journal.
Keeping things versatile is keeping me strong. I like having such a broad range of creative activities I can count towards this project.

Day 1:
Spent the morning taking photos. Spent the afternoon editing them and a backlog of several more photo shoots as well that I was able to finish up.

Day 2: I admit, I missed a day. I’ll make it up before the week is up though 🙂

Day 3: drew something. It sucked. Guess I wasn’t feeling it.

Day 4: mini photo session

Day 5: fun with facepaint. Practicing a sugar skull for my friend who wants to dress up on Halloween. We did a run through just for kicks.

Day 7: saw an image on a YouTube video (proof: the photographers on photography) and decided to paint it.
