11  Re: Thing-A-Day Feb 2017 Craftalong in Craftalongs by Watsonc7 on: January 18, 2017 08:44:26 PM
I think I might use this craftalong specifically to force myself into making art every day.  I really wish I would stop overthinking art and just get nassy with it, this might be the perfect push!

My list here:

February
1. A5 swap log booklet for my planner. Nothing exciting enough to post a pic, but definitely something I've needed to make for a long time now.
2. ATCs

3. Scrap Masterboards (9 ATC, 14 postcards)

4.  Attempted image transfers onto collaged backgrounds #FAIL
5.  Random fact ATCs

6-8: Experimented with image transfer methods.  Made camel postcard using wax paper transfer.  Also, made postage people ATCs


9-10: made 2 never ending art cards

11. Artistamps

12. Not a thang!


Rough ideas:
Try to do a mini art in a grid each day too
Gelli prints (paper and fabric)
Watercolors
Mail art envies
Clay character bowl
Shrinky charms/bookmarks
Make masterboards to destash paper
Weaving in a hoop?
Practice brush techniques (get to know my brushes)
Make tags
Art techniques cards
Collage practice (surreal, exquisite corpse, layered face, etc)
Silicone paper
Transfer techniques
Wax paper printing

Congrats RantyHippie!  Oooh baby girls!!  I always wanted a boy so I accidentally said "awww man!" out loud when I found out I was having a girl at my ultrasound (no judgement)...but eventually I calmed myself down about having to buy pink things and barbies (I was never girly girly) and how in the world would I keep her away from boys.  Cut to 10 years later and she's always been the absolute best thing I've ever crafted, I'm so thankful!  Side note: I bought the pink things and tons of Barbie stuff early on and she ended up being drawn to dirt, science, dragons and wolves, yay!

Along the baby lines....I finished another project today.  My sister in law requested bandana bibs for my new nephew Cruz.  I ended up using different fabric combos (so I can get feedback on which ones absorbed the best) and 3 different bandana styles/sizes.  I'm all about mixin it up.  I really really tried to use only my stash (half of them are), but my other sister in law bought me the joanns fabric calendar with a coupon for every month and I wouldn't want her to think I hated her gift (I'll have to prove it every month this year), so I added the awesome deer, x, and teepee fabric to my stash. I'm just not a rude person  Grin
