For the past 125 days I have been making little daily projects
for my instagram feature #365CREATE.
What started as a nod to Noah Scalin’s project
365 A Daily Creativity Journal
has turned into Draw.Stamp.Print.
What is Draw.Stamp.Print?
Well, it’s a way for me to give over
some time every day to develop the skills
I need to produce printwork.
I have always wanted to be proficient at printing.
If you look through my blog you
will see my previous forays into printing;
There’s some screen, lino and even potato printing.
With the exception of the my 1 Potato, 2 Potato
table runner print made earlier this year (which I love),
my efforts haven’t been great,
and a bit short lived.
Project #365CREATE has for
whatever reason, set my thinking and my efforts straight.
ALL it takes is practise – daily practise.
So every day I sketch a little to improve my woeful drawing skills;
I am currently working from Eloise Renouf‘s brilliant book
20 Ways to Draw A Tree.
When I am ‘over’ drawing, I try my hand at
making stamps (the rubber kind) and some printing.
I am really enjoying Draw.Stamp.Print.
Finger’s crossed nothing new
and exciting comes my way to distract me.
