100 Days of Mini Collages – First Week

#The100DayProject

This year I’m participating in #The100DayProject.  

I didn’t really think I would post on my blog about this because I’m actually not great at keeping up with projects that are that long.

But so far I haven’t missed a day and it seems really manageable, so here I am.

 

For The 100 Day Project, you simply choose a project and do it for 100 days.  It began on April 3rd (but honestly, you can start something like this anytime you like!)

I didn’t want to add another big “To Do” to my list and I wanted this to just simply be fun, so I chose something very easy and quick.

I got a 3.5 inch X 5 inch sketchpad at Michael’s when I was shopping there with my mom a couple of weeks ago.  It was cute and it was on sale for around $2.00.  (And my mom bought it for me – thanks, Mom!)

I didn’t actually know what my plan was for it, but then that night I found out about The 100 Day Project and this pad has exactly 100 pages.

I decided on mini collages because I love creating collages.  I have little scraps of paper I save to use up.

I also needed something portable because I’m traveling a lot and I didn’t want to miss a day.

Everything I need fits in this cute pencil pouch.

I have a Ziplock baggie of paper scraps, different colors of pens, little scissors, tape runner, a black pen and the actual little sketchbook itself all fit in there for easy travel.

How has it worked so far?

I’ve completed a new mini collage every single day.  Usually I do it in the morning before I get my day started.  It only takes a few minutes.  Then I take a quick photo and post it on Instagram.

That’s another thing I had to get over to make this project less complicated.  I actually hate taking photos with my phone.  Even on Instagram I typically take photos with my big camera and then upload them.  That process is fine, except if I’m doing this every day and taking a photo for Instagram every day then I needed to let go of having perfect photos and just take cellphone photos of the projects, especially since sometimes I’m rushing off somewhere as soon as I get the collage done.

And it’s been fine.  In fact, it’s been very freeing and fun.
