How was your weekend everyone? Ours was busy but great.
Recently I was reading Somerset Studio and came across the artwork of Randel Plowman.
Did you all see this article? He creates a collage a day and posts them on his blog. His archives on his blog go back to 2006! I really felt inspired by Randel. He said "The more I thought about making art, the less I did it. I decided to stop thinking and start making." I felt like this was a huge message for me.

So I decided the same thing for myself. Stop thinking, start making. It was a great decision. Just getting there and starting AND saying something is done that day, that is huge for me. So I am on day 9 and I did miss a day. That is o.k. for me. I can't really say how long I will do this. I started with collage using matte medium, then I began stitching my pieces. I LOVE doing that. Then I started painting. It of course comes with challenges but so far I am excited.

I am really loving the progression, the trying things out. I really encourage anyone to give it a try. You can do anything for a week right? And I am sure you won't want to stop. Let me know if you decide to start.
