It's Day No. Two (2). If you haven't yet read the introduction, please pop over and we'll wait for you to get back! The Creativity Queue Challenge Hostesses for Day No. 2 are Green Glass and Karen of I am Rushmore! These lovelies will be introducing you to something on their own creative radar today and getting the ball rolling for our 8 [non-consecutive] days of creativity.
washi tapes are magical
Another thing I'd been wanting to try is japanese washi tape in my art journal. I splurged on a bunch of washi tape, and I am experimenting with it in this journal. I looked at a bunch of sites and ultimately purchased washi tape from cutetape. I have talked with the owner by email (because I was anxious for these certain graffiti tapes to come in) and Glenda happens to live in north texas as well! It took me a full week to decide, and I am so happy with what I picked. The order was shipped promptly, accurately, perfectly!
My creativity queue included altering this $2 hardback I'd bought a few months ago. And so, as you can see, I started this week! Yesterday I shared the first bunch of pages, and here's another:
This journal is going to be all about simple things.
Some of the stuff on this page = airbrush acrylics, washi tapes, paint chips, ephemera, product packaging, tissue paper, a page from a Cinderella book that a friend brought back from her trip to Bulgaria, a photograph printed as a photo printed by MOO on a mini card, pencil, neocolors... I think it's safe to say there's a little of everything.
Meanwhile, please post what you are working on for this day of the challenge. It's totally OK to show or talk about work in progress, creative scheming and planning, buying materials for a project you dreamed about, making a detailed list of steps you'll need to quilt a piece of wacky fabric art, the steps you are taking to sketch out your yard so that you can decide what to plant where. These are all fair game. It's not about FINISHED, it's about DOING. So it's not a RUSH RUSH RUSH thing, it's a DO thing.
You might wind up working on the same project every day, or try to finish the loose ends on a lot of different things, or try various experiments with your art supplies. So post a link to the photo at flickr (make sure it's not marked private) or to your blog or somewhere in weblandia that we can see what you are up to. And everyone loves to get comments according to my official 47 second survey. So pretty please pop over to these spots and say hello. Spread the love, give congrats.
Remember, you can post photos for any Daisy Yellow challenge or prompt at the Daisy Yellow Flickr group. You'll need to request access, and if you have a photostream with any of your art in it, I will verify and add you.
