Project 365

I have a project for 2018.
To create 365 postcards.
I think it will mostly involve acrylic paint, and some collage.

I created my 1st one today. No pic though as I do not have the technology yet.

The idea came from http://www.ihanna.nu/blog/2017/12/project-365-somethings-2018/#more-25323

Do you have a daily project this year?

I prefer the idea of 7 a week, and am committing month by month- that way there is more chance of success.

retro-nostalgia

joined in my 2nd art swap - this time with someone in the US.
The theme was retro- nostalgia and I had a go at collage. The glitter pens do on gleam like they do in real life. It was fun to do.

Afformations for creatives -day 14

we can decree this :~
Image may contain: cloud, sky, ocean and outdoor

and we can afform this:~

Why is all of life  coming to me with ease, joy and glory?



 Remember to let your mind search for the answers to your question.
The point of afformations is not to actually cognitively  answer the question you are presenting.



The point of afformations is to begin to use your mind in a generative  new way – to begin focusing on things you may never have focused on before.(I was inspired to post these afformations as a part of Eli Trier's series of  interviews

Day 6-while I was pacing the floor



I do not pace the floor. I used to pace if I had to wait , but these days am so much more mellow.

But I do like some of the prompts, so will happily let the words flow from/through in and around them.


Word prompts:
shadows walk with me'
keeping the pace'
between then and now'
moving to breathe'
pacing happy thoughts '






Cinquain is the form I chose for today

Cinquain is a short, usually unrhymed poem consisting of twenty-two syllables distributed as 2, 4, 6, 8, 2, in five lines. It was developed by the Imagist poet, Adelaide Crapsey.


Another form, sometimes used by school teachers to teach grammar, is as follows:

Line 1: Noun
Line 2: Description of Noun
Line 3: Action
Line 4: Feeling or Effect
Line 5: Synonym of the initial noun.

Existence
Endless possibility
Embraces
Lovingly opening
Awareness.#

I went for the 2nd option
