17/100

I am always over enthusiastic about how much I can fit into my life. So when I saw The 100 Project and noticed many interesting people signing on to the party on Instagram I jumped in. I’m not keeping up with the pack, that’s for sure. But I made more art than I would have unprompted and I’ll call that a win. If you are on Instagram check out #the100dayproject. 
My hashtag is #100daysofbookingit


 The first few books I made were made of one piece of paper. The background fun began on the full sheet. It was then folded and cut so that it would form a book with 8 pages. You might think of it as a greeting card with a lot of pages, a pamphlet or a sparse book – your choice. 

Yes, there’s plenty of pink. Why wouldn’t there be?

The layout possibilities are endless.

Here’s a peek at several I’ve made. The one on the top includes a fortune cookie fortune that I’ve held on to for a while. 

The uncharacteristic shock of green in this one makes me smile. Nevertheless pink reigns front and center. 

Perhaps I’ll post some more of these. I lost my momentum as Spring appeared. Seasonal allergies, end of the school year (how will I finish everything in time?) and other projects have been a pull at my time, but I hope to get back into the swing of things when we break for Summer. There will be work to do, curriculum to work on, but I think there will be a few more hours for paint.

How is Spring treating you? What delights you these days? Hope to be in touch.

  1. You've been awfully productive, Lynda! Very nice. — love that pink!

  2. Hi Jeanie,
    Kind of you to say I've been productive. It feels like I've been slacking. I know, however, that it's not a matter of slacking, but one of being busy in many ways.
