After completing the April Art Challenge, I realized how much I enjoy participating in different challenges and contests.
The best part of participating is the large amount of growth I see in my work in just a matter of weeks. By forcing myself to create more in a shorter time span, I am faced with lots of roadblocks that I have to tackle in order to complete the challenges. These roadblocks ultimately lead me to find solutions to problems I had previously avoided and that leads to growth and a greater understanding of what I can achieve with paper art.
Below are some challenges that I am participating in for the month of May.
When I was pairing up the different prompts to come up with 6 different light boxes, I had no idea what I would do for dice. I couldn’t picture adding a pair of dice to any of my scenes – it just didn’t make sense. Therefore, I decided to use the verb form of the word and incorporate it into the little queen’s world.
I loved working on my evil little queen. I used a lot more layers and elements that really made the piece look a lot more developed, and thought out, than anything else I’ve ever made out of paper.
The 90th day of my 90 Day Art Challenge is finally here. It feels like I started this challenge just yesterday, but by the same token, it feels like I’ve been doing this for a long time.
The growth I’ve seen from my first piece to what I am creating now, is definitely evident. I feel like my pieces have so much more depth and are a lot more detailed. Overall, they are a lot more professional looking, in terms of the execution.
Keep reading to see what I worked on these last 15 days and to find out what I have planned next.
As the 90 Day Art Challenge is coming to an end, I am losing a bit of steam. I have so many daily responsibilities, that if I don’t work on the challenge one day, it becomes harder to work on it the next day. Hence, why so many of the days were combined. But I’m pushing through.
