The #100dayproject ~ Part 1

#100dayproject Marjie Kemper Days 1-20

Welcome!  Today I am sharing twenty pieces of small art.  These were my posts for Days 1-20 of the #100dayproject on Instagram.  I've bundled the photos below so each collage represents 4 days of Instagram posts.

The only requirement was to agree to participate with some kind of daily creativity (writing, art, photo, cooking… didn't matter what).  We both decided to post some kind of art each day for the 100 day period. You can find me Instagram here:  Marjie on Instagram.

My theme

I thought I'd do a post-it a day, figuring that was mighty small real estate and squares are the optimum shape for Instagram pics.  I ended up mixing it up a bit size-wise and just keeping to a ‘small squares' theme.  My squares range between 2″ and 4″ in size.

I've enjoyed having a brief creative time set aside each day and not allowing it to take up a whole lot of time.  Most of my squares are just blended ink/paint + stamps + stencils.  It was definitely fun to go through all my stamps and I'll be trying not to reuse any over the course of the project.

An interesting aspect of this was that each participant was to create his her own unique hashtag, so all the art from that person could be seen at a glance. Jessica's hashtag is #100daysofquirkycritters.  Mine is #100daysofsmallsquares. Searching#100dayproject will show you all sorts of beautiful entries.

Mixed Media Art Membership Group

Have you heard about the Mixed Media Art Membership Group? It's a monthly membership that I host that includes facilitated learning through a Project of the Month (with closed-captioned video instruction), Themed Challenge of the Month, a live Zoom Create-Along Session where we all work on our art together, and lots of resources such as the Project Vault, Technique Vault and Resource Library. Best of all is the supportive and inspiring community we enjoy in our private Facebook Group and the gated private forum on the site where I host the videos and resources.  

The group is only open for new members a few times a year, so please add your name to the waiting list to be the first to know when the doors open again. Click here to add your name to the waiting list.

    All your squares are beautiful. I didn’t know about the challenge, but I don’t instagram, soooo…. I’ll just have to wait to view yours as you accumulate more. :)

    I love your little squares of art – what a great post full of creativity. It’s a lovely collection already, and I love the way it’s allowing you to work through your stamp collection. I shall try to keep an eye out that you don’t repeat! Glad you liked the melting people… and just to let you know, the first Beijing post is up.
