I'm a (hundred) superstar(s)!

What a lovely creative exercise! Here are my fist 40 stars for today.

I'm not big on moodboards, I'm yet to incorporate them in my working routine (I'm ususally much to impacient to make them, I'd rather jump straight to the project right away), but I've tried the brinstorming part:

For now, I've stayed in Illustrator, but there are still 60 to go, so I'm sure I'm going to explore different ways of working in the next days.

I feel like I've stayed in my comfort zone (Illustrator), but I'm excited for the challenge of exploring food, paint and paper cutting etc. 

I've set to myself: at least 5 a day, even If I get into that fearful dip. Let's see how it goes.

Cheers!

Day 2 - 8 Stars

I've been to a children's soccer game, then a pretty normal and busy day with my family. I had a bit more than an hour to gather what I could find around the house before midnight. I've found some paper stars I had done years ago and were sitting in the bottom of a drawer; some beads that I gathered in star shapes, a whip cream lid, very dusty because we never use it, the faucet of my shower and an orange squeezer I use for breakfasts.

So, 8 more stars to my collection. 52 to go. Tomorrow...

Cheers,

Milena

DAY 3

This is going to be harder than I thought. I'm counting only 5 stars for today :(

Total blank for about 5 days! So, my initail idea of adding at least 5 new stars a day was a fail...

But the unfinished challenge was bugging me, a lot. So today, I decided I would complete the 100, and I did!

First, I took a stroll around the condo and spotted at least 10 good star shapes:

Then, a few stars using a recent love: a brush pen.

Then I still had 12 empty spots in my 100 grid, so I went back to my comfort zone: Illustrator. I hope this isn't cheating :P

Nice learning experience! I learned that "feeling" like you can do 100 different somethings is different than actually doing 100 different somethings. It's harder than I thought. I also learned I don't like leaving my comfort zone very much...
