Hi, everyone. I’m one week post-surgery and doing well. I said I wouldn’t worry about writing any articles during July, but there’s no harm in showing you what I’ve been doing on my art challenge, The 100 Day Project, since the last time I checked in.
The 2018 100 Day Project runs from April 3 through tomorrow. The idea is to make a piece of art every day for 100 days (a tiny artwork is fine). The challenge just happens to overlap with two other challenges I like to do, the Daisy Yellow Index-Card-a-Day challenge and World Watercolor Month.
My theme for ICAD (Index-Card-a-Month) is animals.
By the way, I’ve missed a lot of days, but I expected I would. When you have surgery, all bets are off.
Flamingo with zentangle.
There may have been a superhero prompt. This is Underdog.
Now we cross over to watercolor. I am painting on watercolor postcards because index cards are too unpredictable when they get wet. (See mantis above.)
Ladybug on daisy.
This one was inspired by a Williams-Sonoma pillow.
Are you participating in any art challenges right now? Feel free to add a link in the comments.

Doing triple duty tonight. For The 100 Day Project via Zentangle All Around and the Diva Challenge. The Zentangle pattern Puf can be done a number of ways. Here are a couple of practice tries from my sketchbook:
And here is my tile for the challenge, with Puf done on in square, triangular, and rectangular grids:
I’ve mentioned that I’m participating in The 100 Day Project with the Facebook group, Zentangle All Around. The Project runs from April 3 to July 11, which means it will also intersect with two other art challenges I participate in. But more about that later.
Zentangle All Around is spending 15 minutes a day tangling for The Project. I don’t always complete a design in 15 minutes, so some of mine are spread over three days. We post on Instagram. Check out these hashtags: #the100dayproject and #zentangleallaround.
Sigh. I missed a few days.
Here are my offerings for April:
Patterns Pickpocket and Raised.
Patterns Maelstrom, Tofube, and Paradox.
A pointillist experiment.
Patterns Shattuck and Tripoli.
The start of a string. Pattern: cubine.
Practicing a new (to me) pattern.
The finished string, with Flukes and Elirob added.
The beginning of a new string. The pattern is Framz.
I’ll post the next batch of my 100 Day Project artworks on June 9.
My offering for this week’s Diva Challenge using the two patterns Shattuck and Tripoli. I have an in-progress photo, because I’m participating in The 100 Day Project by tangling for 15 minutes every day (okay, some days) with the Zentangle All Around Facebook group.
This week’s Diva Challenge is to trace your fingers (see my peace sign/V for victory?) and use the outline to create a string to tangle around. I used the patterns Maelstrom, Tofube, and Paradox.
And because the Zentangle All Around Group is tangling for 15 minutes a day during The 100 Day Project, I have a few in-progress pictures.
