The 100 Day Project
The 100 day project is a free art project that takes place online. Starting April 2nd, thousands of people explore their creativity for 100 days. I joined the project because i needed a challenge that would push me outside my comfort zone, which is exactly what is happening.
#The100DayProject facilitator is @lindsayjeanthomson who began the project 6 years ago. Check out the hashtag #The100DayProject to find and follow those who are participating. It’s not too late to join in. People from all creative backgrounds join the challenge, therefore making it interesting and varied.
I’ve chosen the theme #my100daysofcrochetcolour or #my100daysofcrochetcolor. My 100 day challenge is t0 create 100 different colour schemes. They will form a colour scheme resource for future projects, which will handy guide to colour.
I’m finding the challenge very therapeutic for me, because it provides a wonderful, creative distraction from grief. Meeting the daily challenges has forced me to be creative and productive, therefore pushing me to not to give up.
Creating 100 colour combos means moving right out of my comfort zone. At day 38 i have exhausted all my familiar and comfortable colour combinations, therefore leaving me with no option but to extend my range. I love being challenged!
