Top 5 Lessons Learned from my First Creative Personal Project

Last week I completed my first creative personal project 100 Days of Pillows, where for 100 weekdays I committed to making a new design that could be printed on a throw pillow. It was one of the most difficult and satisfying projects I’ve completed in my art journey. I learned so much from it, things […]

100 Days of Pillows (84-90)

After my mini-meltdown 😉 at the end of Day 83, the past week and a half was hands-down my favorite of all during this project. Every pattern felt intentional, my final color choices sure (even if I struggled to get there), and I really enjoyed sitting down to draw each one. A modern tree pattern. […]

100 Days of Pillows (77-83)

Remember the owls from Day 76? They led to four additional designs using a similar color palette, starting with this floral pattern. I added the orange-red for an extra pop of color. I also made a discovery with this design: I prefer using a smaller ink tip for drawing details than I had been previously […]

100 Days of Pillows (70-76)

It’s hard to believe I just hit 75% complete on this project! When I first started I couldn’t imagine finishing a project this size. I was committed but honestly a little afraid. When it’s complete I’ll probably write a post with all that I’ve learned in this process, but for now, I’m so thankful I […]

100 Days of Pillows (63-69)

Warmer still. The good news is that it didn’t take until Day 75 to get comfortable again, as I predicted. It seemed to happen right after my last blog post with Day 63! Creativity really does need exercise much like a muscle. If you flex it, it grows bigger. Ignore it, even for a short […]

100 Days of Pillows (56-62)

Getting warmer. I looked back at my first 50 pillow designs and realized it took about 25 designs before things started to feel really comfortable. So if history repeats itself, given my little break at Day 50, Days 75-76 should be hopping! But, hopefully it won’t take as long this time. 😉 This ocean themed […]

After reaching the halfway point (!) of the 100 Days of Pillows project, I decided it was a good time to switch gears for the holidays. Namely, I’ll be traveling and taking some rest days with family. So, the pillow project will commence again in January. I realized recently that while I had shared my […]

100 Days of Pillows (32-36)

It was a great week creatively-speaking. I feel like something has clicked in the past couple of weeks and my work is getting better. I can now look back at some of my earlier pillow designs in this project and see where I was struggling to find my way. While I didn’t have a set […]
