Week 2: #100daysoftags

Week 2, #100daysproject




Yesterday ended Week 2 of #100dayschallenge and my #100daysoftags. I decided I would use some of the exploratory concepts being presented in Wanderlust 2022 for my tags. The first two tags were inspired by Jeanne Oliver's lesson using charcoal and gesso. The ideas were not new to me, but it had been so long ago that I had played with them that I found a kind of childlike wonder all over again. The first was a botanical drawing using chunky Derwent charcoal, activated with water, followed by adding highlights with white gesso. The second tag was a reminder that there is simple beauty in using staples not only to adhere layers to a tag, but also as a form of mark-making. Both were very satisfying activities. 

Day 10 involved collage using torn scraps (yes, this is the hoarder's heaven) from magazines, water-stained handwritten recipes, teabags, and other ephemera, which I entitled "beneath the golden sky." Days 11 and 12 were more collage. on Day 13 I decided to play with acrylic paints. And I ended the week with a round tag where I played with Conte crayons (new product for me.) While they felt and acted like pastels, a quick Google search revealed they are somewhat waxier than pastels and therefore less "dusty" and somewhat more controllable. 

What materials have you been playing with this past week? I'd love if you respond in the comments below. Can't wait to see what this week will bring.

  1. This is the usual tactic in video games of contrary motion corresponding to Backgammon the place gamers transfer their pieces in opposing instructions. In a hitting game, the gamers could hit enemy blots off the board. To do this some extent must be occupied by just one opposing piece – this is called a blot – and the attacking player should transfer a chunk onto that time. The blot is 'hit' or 'knocked off' the board and is usually placed on the bar 메리트카지노 between the 2 halves of the board. A small number of tables video games contain no precise motion of pieces across the board. Instead pieces are entered or borne off or each, the purpose being to be the primary player to take action.
