In my year full of color, I’m taking one step around the color each month. 12 colors in 12 months.
It’s a logical progression at a steady pace that suits my practice well.
I’m documenting and sharing my experience as I go in an online program, TWELVTY, along with all the myriad resources I gather along the way.
There’s a new creative project every month, and there’s an art journal that has a few pages devoted to each month. Over the year this book will develop into a mixed media color-wheel-book. (A bit like this one – which inspired this year’s journey)
At the end of each month the art I made is available to buy online, and I make some little flip through videos of the art journal pages for my YouTube channel.
If you’ve visited this blog before, you will have seen some. They look like this
Months 1, 2 & 4. Erm…?
If you know me at all, you’ll know that this logical, consecutive, stepping order is not in keeping with my natural method. Any attempt to follow a structured system is liable to cause a part of my brain to misfire. I plan, I organise, I wander off route. Every freaking time!
Over the years I’ve found ways to make peace (mostly) with these quirks. I dance about in my own kind of high octane chaos. I enjoy making these colorful little schedules and lists. These are the compass by which I course-correct along my wiggly route.
At almost the half way point in the year, I’ve kept order to the creative part, but the end of month sharing schedule has gone a little catawompus.
Which is why – having shown you Twelvty-Four’s blue-green creative output already – today I want to show you the little green goodies I made during Twelvty-Three!
In this month of Green I made this small collection of greetings cards from little bundles of hand dyed papers, held together with stitching. But they are more than that. They are also pieces of art you can frame and love forever. These are delicate and intricate, the more you look the more you see.
If you hop on over to my Etsy shop you may be in time to snap one up before they go.
