The Sketchbook Project and Art Every Day Month Challenge

I’m very fond of Angela Liguori’s blog: Edizioni. It was yesterday that I was there and saw this photo of a paper garland at Terrain and that was where I got my inspiration for the piece above. My stringing of buttons looks just like that although the paper garland is so delicate and pretty. I made a couple of the paper circle garlands. They made me so happy. There’s this hesitation of doing something that someone else has done for mostly decorative reasons. I’m procrastinating. I should be doing other worthwhile endeavors on my list but I feel like I can take this somewhere into an art project somehow. It’s now in my creative arsenal. I’ve known that when there’s something I’m really attracted to it helps when I explore that deeper and find out why I’m attracted to it.

I am made painfully aware that besides a daily creative practice I need to also undertake a daily exercise practice to at least strengthen my back. It seems so appropriate that this would come up this month.

Discovered this beautiful waxed ephemera from J. Morgan Puett via Kathy deRosas who’s doing some incredible installation work among other things.

  1. I like the button chain…even when we get ideas from other artists…we always give it our onw spin. I think that the creative applications on this one are limitless!
