dream 188-192/365somethings2018


Yesterday
is but today's memory
and tomorrow
is today's dream.

A while ago I bought this book about the meaning of dreams,
not only because I am interested in the subject,
but also because I liked the images in it.
After reading the book I went through it again,
cut out the images that spoke to me and
added them to my collage stash.

A few of them I used as a starting point for my next 365 somethings:

180-184/365somethings2018


We can do no great things,
only small things
with GREAT love.
Mother Teresa.








Finally crossed the half way mark of the 365 challenge,
although be it with babysteps,
I will get there in time.

Wonder where my inspiration came for this series? 😉

174-179/365somethings2018


For this series I attached several index cards together 
and 
started with some random mark making,
detached them,
added some final touches
which make them all unique
(although they started out out of the same piece)









I love them all
they are bold and expressive

INSPIRATION,
a funny little thing
sometimes my head spins with ideas and inspiration,
other days not so much.

What to do on such days?
well, browsing the internet sometimes work,
but be carefull,
because before you know it the whole day has passed with "just" looking at what others have created and you didn't do a thing.

That said, for the next cards I browsed pattern images in google
and the ones that spoke to me I put down in my way on paper.



why stick to only black&white?
so much more fun to be made with the colors of the rainbow:

157-163/365somethings2018

The next 7 indexcards in the 365 series.
yes, this time I did manage to create a series of 7.
Why weren't these posted earlier then?
Well, my weird brain and his logic, that's why.
I found that I first needed to create 4 more cards in the butterfly series,  
post them and then and only then I could post these. 
Sounds perfectly sain, right? 
no??!?

These were made during printinktober,
gosh, that is 3 months ago 😲

I grabbed my handcarving tools and carved away.

Can you believe that the first 2 cards are in fact made with exactly the same stamp???
