An Update to my collage project #tellme100

It has been a while since I shared some photos of my #tellme100 project here in the blog. Just to remember, I started this project last year with the aim to make 100 collages with some kind of quote / saying. I did not finish the project last year, in fact, saying that I did not finish is a big understatement. But I am happy to report that 2017 is going to be the year of collage around here. I am so passionate about my journals and my paper scraps right now, I just can’t stop!

So let’s give a look what I’ve done so far:

I am actually by number 26/100. In the last update I showed the collages number 1 to 12, if you want to catch up you can give a look here in the blog or on Instagram.

Collages number 13, 14 and 15 are square, and only bring one word as a message. I wanted to make something different, had re-evaluated the serie but finally decided to go back to the roots and to the quotes / phrases format I’ve been doing from number 1 to 12.

Wise words on number 16, one of my favorite quotes.

Love this bird, I think I should make a serie of collages only with birds.

One page in my new art journal (Leuchtturm 1917 daily planner), love the bigger format. Not sure if I’ll sometimes write a quote here.

Happily back to my little Moleskine 😉

Let’s make art! My #tellme100 project

I started 2016 with the good intention of making 100 collages.

I didn’t.

I really love making collages – it is quick, I love to play with paper (and I have a huge collection of paper scraps), it is so uncomplicated and super therapeutic too..

I ask myself why did I not manage to get my 100 little pieces done this year… but instead of looking to what I did not make I decided to keep going and be strong for the next two months and beyond. I’ll eventually make my 100 collages and will them start again. Because I love it and it makes me happy.

These are the first 12 collages I did and just looking at them all together makes my hear smile. So you will see a lot of these here and on my Instagram account in the next time.

Hope you follow and comment and help me to keep creating 🙂 Let’s make art!

Have a wonderful day everyone!

 

 

 

 

#tellme100

As I mentioned earlier this week, this year I will step on a year-long project of making art for myself.

My goal is to make 100 collages / art journal pages including quotes or lyrics in 2016.

I decided to not make a “something-a-day” project becuase I know I can’t keep with it. With the goal of creating 100 little pieces I hope to get more creative and get the habit of sharing for, perhaps, creating a 365-project in 2017. Today I shared my first collage on instagram.

I’ll be making round-ups here in the blog from time-to-time.

Thanks for stopping by today and have a wonderful weekend!
