100 Day Project Mini 10 | Days 91-100 "Catching Dreams"
Alongside my main 100 Day Project (where I added one element to the same piece of paper for 100 days), I created 5x7 minis as a way to capture every 10 marks!
Each day when I made my mark on my main project, I did the same thing on my mini and began a new mini every 10 days. It was a way to highlight the different techniques and elements that were added (since a lot of the markings--especially the early ones--get covered or altered as the project progresses) and it was also an exploration in scale and creating in a shorter time frame.
I had so much fun making each of these minis and they have become so special to me! I hope you enjoy them as well!
The first prompt I used for this piece was "serenity" and it reminded me of peaceful sleep which reminded me of dreamcatchers. Dreamcatchers were created by the Ojibwe to catch bad dreams and let good dreams pass through.
The theme of serenity and catching dreams continued to flow through the final days of my 100 Day Project and I kept the color palette to blues, greys, and gold. Creating and sharing art is my dream, what's yours? I hope this mini inspires you to keep on chasing and catching those dreams!
