A daily creative process
What it’s about
It was dreamed up by Elle Luna and The Great Discontent. Here’s how they describe it:
What Is the 100-Day Project? It’s a celebration of process that encourages everyone to participate in 100 days of making. The great surrender is the process; showing up day after day is the goal. For the 100-Day Project, it’s not about fetishizing finished products—it’s about the process.
Sounds great, right? I committed to do something creative (anything, really) every day for 100 days. Then I pop the photo up on Instagram with a hashtag for the entire project (#100dayproject) as well as a unique hashtag for my own project (mine is #100daysofsmallsquares).
The #100dayproject is daunting, I’ll admit.
But a certain stubborn-ness is a good thing as it’s making me keep going. And I really am having fun creating something every day. I’m making square art that ranges from 2″ to 4″ in size. I’ve used a lot of stamps and it’s getting more challenging now to avoid repetition. So far, so good, but I confess I have had to look back at the prior posts to be sure I’m not forgetting what I’ve already used.
That last one on the bottom right was meaningful as I made it two Sundays ago, the day of the Orlando massacre. I was art journaling and thought the eye stamp was a significant representation of someone praying for all the people who endured such horrible pain and loss.
So, sixty down….. forty to go. I love making art for so many reasons. This has been quite a challenge.
