Collage-oween 2018

I finished my personal 31 day challenge of creating a soul collage card every day for the month of October. I was introduced to the concept of soul collage at a workshop hosted by Little Dame Shop way back in the summer. My instructor-turned-friend, Kara-Leigh, guided us through the process of intuitive collage with the goal of making our own tarot or oracle card deck. It might have been the best $50 I ever spent creatively! I fell in love with the process and felt like it was what I had been looking for for a while. After the class, I went and purchased my own supplies and began making a card every now and then. I knew I wanted to do “Collage-oween” again this year and felt like soul collaging my way through would be the perfect way to keep it light and easy. I really like working within the 5”x8” border, it was easy to compose and generate ideas. I ended up completing this challenge and found it to be very fun, freeing, and motivating. I liked doing something just for myself without feeling the need to post it on social media.

I’m sharing my gallery with you below. I hope you enjoy!

What projects are you working on? How do you feel about posting every day on social media? Is it motivating or demotivating for you? I would love to start a discussion surrounding the idea of social media, output, and art. Thanks for taking a look! - Sierra

The Sketchbook Project - April 2017

Over the last several months, I have been filling up a blank sketchbook to be included in The Sketchbook Project. The Sketchbook Project is a sketchbook library housed in the Brooklyn Art Library based in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, New York that houses sketchbooks from thousands of artists and amateurs alike. You can search different topics that pique your interest and find artists who have tagged their book with that subject. Artists from all around the world submit their sketchbooks to the library. The Sketchbook Project also digitizes their sketchbooks, for a fee of $35, so that people can experience the sketchbook library on the web. 

My sketchbook, Indigo Visions, was submitted to the Sketchbook Project in April of 2017. I have digitized it here for you to see and experience.
