I was searching through the “DS106″ website (still not sure what that means), and I discovered something called Daily Creates. I just knew I had to test my creativity with these. It turns out that these activities were the best part of my very stressful week. When you work as hard as I do, any little fun outlet is worth it. I completed three of those things this week, and I am darn proud of them!
The first Daily Create that I did involves a bagel, grapes, and one winning smile! I could not pass on the prompt to make a “Breakfast Selfie” when I noticed how naturally happy this bagel is. It made me happy, too! It really was a shame to eat it, but a girl needs her morning nourishment!
The next Daily Create that I completed took 15 seconds. Easy peasy! Literally, it was a 15-second challenge to draw Batman. And, who doesn’t love a hero? Ask my clients, they will tell you how important it is to have a hero to save the day (or a life). I did this one while at work at the law firm. Shhh! Don’t tell my boss-dad!
To round out the week, I partook in some tree art. Personally, I didn’t even know tree art was a thing, but guess what?! I rocked it! (I think!) The top one is the original photo with the sky as the background, which I took on the car ride home from James and Allman. I copied and pasted the same photo and turned it to make this cool design. Then, I experimented with different hues to give uniqueness to the copies. They are colors of different blouses that I own! Don’t you just love them?
This creative outlet took away a lot of stress from my week, and I cannot wait to do it again!
