I decided to use The new Creative Artist as the book I want to work thru cover to cover. The very first activity in it is to make a job jar. She states that as you go thru the book if any of the project strike your fancy writem down and put them into a jar and pull one out when your feeling stuck. I'm doing this one as I go along and just have to find a jar to use for it. The next activity, which will be the first one I put into the job jar, was the one I started with. It's called fill a Sketch book page in a Jiffy. Give yourself 15 minutes and fill a page, it's as simple as that. I also created a new Bucket O'Art Supplies for myself. Read the page and you'll understand why the bucket is important. If you can't see the text on the page go to my flikr page and you should be able to read it there.
Yeah, I know my Mah Bucket is a box but I wasn't going to go out and buy anything new. One of my goals for working thru this book, and for my life in general is to not to buy anything to complete the activites. I have lots of art supplies. Not just what's in the bucket. I also want to go on a consumer diet. There isn't anything that I need in a material sense right now. Sure, there's stuff I want but what's the point of getting new stuff if I haven't used up the old stuff first. In filping thru the book I don't think there's anything called for that I don't already have. When and if I come across an activity that call for some I don't have then I'll se if there's a subtitution I can make and if not I'll go on-line to price the materials. If their too expensive then that activity will just have to wait until I get a new job. I'll just put a sitcky note on the page and move onto the next activity.
I'm also going to try to work thru Collage with Color in the same systematic way. If I finish my activiey from TNCA and feel I have time then I'll work from CwC.
