The nice thing about this challenge is that there are no rules. The creating can be as complex or as lazy/last-minute as I want it to be. So here's my completed project for Day 1.
It's a tracing of an actual picture I took of an accordion player in Paris. I used an iPad app called Doodle Buddy, which is geared for children. I used my photo as a background and traced, with my finger, over the picture. Then I changed the background to a blank white. Time spent: 10 minutes.
I'm off to a slow start, but this was a fun little exercise. It made me think of other projects I could do with tracing. Perhaps a duvet such as this one from Marimekko.
I brainstormed a little, to make sure I had enough ideas for making things all 30 days. It turns out I have at least twice the ideas I need, and I think I even have the materials to see most of them to completion. It strikes me that I'm constantly collecting "crafting" supplies, but I rarely have the time to use them. I'm hoping this challenge will be a little bit of a turning point in how I view my stash. If I can't use my supplies in the next 30 days, when I am purposefully creating things, maybe those materials need to find a new home.
