The #100dayproject ~ Part 3

#100dayproject Marjie Kemper Days 41-60

A daily creative process

The #100dayproject has passed the halfway mark… thank goodness!  Today I’m posting my projects from Days 41-60.  If you’re interested, you can see the earlier posts here:  Days 1-20 and Days 21-40.

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.

    I would like to know how to make a steampunk mixed media project. Do you think you might do this on your blog?

  2. So wonderful and vibrant and fun Marjie! What a collection you are going to have. Hope you are doing great!

    Such a cheery deck of square you will have when you are finished, which I imagine will provide further inspiration in your process. xox

  4. A wonderful line-up of your beautiful art Marjie, I particularly like the ‘our house in the middle of the street’ having just watched some of the Glastonbury festival where Madness performed that great song! Anne xx

  5. I’ve enjoyed seeing your projects as you’ve embarked on this journey, Marjie. I always start things like this with wild enthusiasm and peeter out about 1/3 of the way through. Good for you for staying on it! What are you going to do with all of your 4-sided delights when it’s done?

      Thanks, Julie! Some will be ‘art abandonment’ and some will work their way into my art journals.
