Half Time Show for the #100dayproject

It's the half time show!  We are 50 + days into the The 100 day project #the100dayproject! Whoop Whoop!

I have loved playing and following along. I am always amazed at just how crazy creative people are. So impressed.

Here is a little round up of some of my favourites that I would like to share with you.

 

Julie Hamilton Creative - #the100dayproject

Mine first because I am writing the blog!  

My #sketchbook_studies project is coming along nicely. Thanks you! I have explored gouache paint, some new flowers and abstract compositions, pattern making and color play. I am having quite a bit of fun with it and have managed to use a bit of what I have learned and created in some of my art licensing projects which is a win win for me.

Allison VanGruen -#the100dayproject blogpost by Julie Hamilton Creative

Next we have Alli VanGruen, my friend and neighbour here in Whistler. She has taken on #100daysofmepainting Above we have her chair series which I love, love, love, but she also has some wonderful animals and portraits. If you look closely through her feed you may even find a painted one of me! In a bikini no less..

Janice Law -#the100dayproject blogpost by Julie Hamilton Creative

Illustrated food is always a favourite of mine. Janice Law of @100eats is doing just that for her project #100_eats. Lots of great images and lovely dark backgrounds.

 

Pauline Van Eijle - #the100dayproject blogpost by Julie Hamilton Creative

Botanical loveliness and awesome color is what Pauline is all about for her project #100daysofgreenery. Love all of her sketchy, stamped and painted images.

Heather Almeda - #the100dayproject blogpost by Julie Hamilton Creative

Heather had me at Aloha for her project #100daysofpaintingaloha She inspires me to pick up a paintbrush and paint bold, colourful scenes from my happy place. I have yet to do so, but for now will happily spend my time looking through her feed.

Rebecca Howdeshell -#the100dayproject blogpost by Julie Hamilton Creative

Next up we have Rebecca and her project #100daysofredart. A lovely mixture of collage and pen work on watercolour paper. I love all of her shapes and linework. She manages to keep it all beautiful while leaving just the right amount of white space.

 

Very berry Handmade - #the100dayproject blogpost by Julie Hamilton Creative

Ali of Very Berry Handmade creates compositions using material, coloured threads and pattern to create #100daysofcuratedcolor. I love all the texture and color combinations she comes up with. I also love things organized nicely into flatlays. 

Lisa Ekstrom -#the100dayproject blogpost by Julie Hamilton Creative

Finally we have Lisa and her project #100daysoabstractstorybook. So much wonderful color and mark making. Every time I look at them I find something new to see. Her project is actually 900 + days long! She has an instagram feed full of  inspirational goodness.

These are just a few of the awesome creative projects going on. Pop on over to the hashtag #the100dayproject for more inspiration.

Enjoy the week everyone! I hope you  have a bit of time to pull out the paintbrushes:)

My first podcast - Creative insights from Creative people

Excited to announce that I am Live on Kara Gott Warners Morning Cool Down Show episode 75. Creative insights from creative people. I spoke about my journey so far in the world of art licensing and surface pattern design. If you follow along here you will know it has been a long, but very enjoyable ride. Todays show is 45 min. long so grab a coffee and please have a listen. There is even a bit of show and tell. [youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MmpH9Q-wCvA&w=560&h=315] It is good! I have to admit I was a bit apprehensive. I wasn't worried about Kara - she is all voice. She is loud and clear and interesting! I was just a wee bit worried about my performance. Would I hum and huh? Would I laugh too much? Would I provide too much or too little... Big worries as you can see! I am very happy to announce it all went well. Direct link to Karas website which is full of interesting creative podcasts from all types. Great to listen to while creating away because it never hurts to get inspired by others tips and tricks. My podcast (show notes) Morning cool Down Podcasts  Thanks! Another beautiful weekend is in the forecast. Hope you enjoy it!
