2015 Projects – You Choose – Intro and Week 1

I like to spread out my projects by style and medium (as well as topic) each year. So when it came to designing my projects, I wanted to pick something that wasn’t painting or coloring, at least not just painting. The very same week I was thinking about all this, I saw this beautiful collage. It was very sparse, elegant and really beautiful.

I decided that’s what I wanted. A collage project. My last collage project was back in 2012 so I thought it might be fun to tackle one again. Something different than what I did last time. I think….but we’ll see.

The introspective part of this project is to couple this art with my code desires. I went to pinterest and made a board of images/phrases that remind me of my core desires. My plan is to print one for each of my collage pages. This way, I can always remember my core desired feelings.

That’s the plan, at least.

Here’s another look at week 1:

Love all the shimmer.

I am planning to keep my spreads relatively sparse. Mix in some paint. Have fun.

Here’s to a year of collages that remind me to focus on feeling the way I want to feel.

    How pretty this is, love those colors together and use them often. Looking forward to seeing these pages this year, great idea and fun!

    Could you let us know how your schedule with these new projects are going once you’ve settled into them? I’m getting my projects in order and not sure how I want to fit them all in.

    Also, have you thought of the boys picking a OLW for the year? You do so much with them I wondered if you’d want them involved too?

    Are you going to use selfies for this project? I am working on a selfie project too, so curious if you are? Love this photo of you.

    Sorry for all the questions, just getting all my info before jumping into my year. I am waiting till February to start mine, I’m using January as a warm up/get ready month. Thanks!
