Make 365

In April 2016 I participated in Creative Sprint. Those who are up for the challenge are sent a prompt by email each day. For 30 days we make something new everyday and share it on social media with one another.

During the sprint, I decided to continue making something every day and got hold of the Creative Sprint leader Noah Scalin’s book 365: A daily creative journal.

I started by making something out of sticky notes each day. I wanted to keep it simple, fun and not too daunting while I’m putting a lot of hard work into my other art work.

I know from studying jewellery at art school that small is not always easier, but being bound to a relatively small scale means less labour. I’m someone who tends to make ridiculously labour intensive art so I definitely need a labour limit!

Other advantages: I can carry a sticky note anywhere, they are relatively cheap and I already have lots of materials to use with them. I’m interested to explore the possibilities within this small scale.

Sometimes I still make some thing out of sticky notes. Sometimes I make some thing else. I go where the momentum is taking me at that time. It’s interesting to see the cycles in my creative process.

Sometimes I’m inspired by the prompts in the book. Other times I make something just because I get the idea to do it. Basically, it is just about making some thing every single day so that you generate momentum.

My daily making project is being documented on Instagram and Twitter.
