Friday Finds April 10

I've found a new project this week. I'm not sure where it originated. You can ask 'the Google' if you're curious. It's called the 100 Day Project.
It apparently started on April 6th and will end 100 days later in July. My track record stinks on things like this. So far I've done four days in a row and am posting to Instagram (but I didn't post last night). I actually didn't get totally finished.
I'm branching off in a new area doing sketches. I've decided to draw what's in my garden as the year progresses and then also to do a mobile edit of the photo I've sketched from. I will most likely include a few other happenings along the way and maybe make journal-type pages with each one. Hopefully in the end I can make a book and will see how my drawing evolves and improves. I'm quite excited about it.
So far my favorite one this week was of these purple tulips I planted last year. (Yes, I know, they look pink in my edits.) First time for tulips at this house. They look more like peonies than tulips. (Speaking of peonies, mine are 2 1/2 feet tall and full of buds already!)
I will not force myself to draw every day. Or at least not feel guilty if I miss.
This shot was from my Canon.

My sketch…

My edit in Stackables on my iPad.

Sorry I missed posting this week for Mobile Art  Monday. I was just so busy with my big girl camera and my 100m lens. :) My granddaughter turns 3 in 4 days and my dad turns 80 also. So much to do, so little time.
Wishing you a restful weekend full of creativity and fun.

  1. These progressions are terrific, Roxi! I loved the sketch but then each edit captivated me even more. It looks and sounds like fun!

  2. I love the story telling aspect of this post. Neat perspective on the artistic process. Really nice!

  3. Hang in there and do what you want. Love the flower photos.

  4. The tulips do look like peonies, they are very pretty. I love your selfie! (I am going to have to try the Retrolux filter in Snapseed :) Good luck on your project, it looks like you are off to a great start.

  5. Beautiful edits! Do you use the sketches in the app and then work from there? did you draw straight onto your iphone/ipad or use paper and pen - the old way!

  6. These edits are beautiful, Roxi - the simplicity of the first one, the romance of the Stackables edit, and the last one is my favorite ... the light and the story!
    Happy Birthday to your little princess and to your dad!

  7. Such talent you have! I hope you'll come share it at this week's Wordless Wednesday (on Tuesday) here:


I read and appreciate all your comments. Have a blessed day!
