12 pages in 2015 - Free Project

I might be too excited about this but when I was thinking about what to do with my super neat and pretty recycled art journals I had a lighting bulb go off and I got "12 Pages In 2015!!!". Nothing big you might say, certainly not a 365 Project or even a 52 one but hey... there are other things to do too :)



Here's why I am so excited: I'd like us all to join in on this one. I'd like us to make ourselves a 12 pages booklet and each month, draw on one page of it so that at the end of the year, we'll have a pretty and very valuable piece of art just for us and to remember 2015 by. What say you?

I'll have a special FB group just for this, I'll keep it a secret one once we are all in and we will share our pieces there and enjoy each other's company - because when we share, things get so much better. We will have a different prompt each month to work with but if you won't like it you'll of course be free to draw whatever you'll want - it's your book after all. I will probably make it a bit difficult for myself and will challenge myself to draw 12 faces while still keeping them aligned with the theme.

I'll post a blog post with the theme each month and I'll link to tutorials or anything I'll find useful for us. I'll also post these things in the FB group so I'll have everybody covered - those of you who are not on FB and those of you who are.

So, if you like my little plan for 2015 and if you'd like to participate do let me know. I'd love you to join me and make it happen.

Here's how my newly made art book for this project looks like:

Kayhy said...

I sent request to join FB group. What do I do to be sure I see blog post? Didn't see the place to follow you. Great idea, to add to all of my other optimistic plans for 2015! LOL

nini said...

Hehe Kayhy, one always needs optimistic plans! :)

There's a "follow by email" option on the top right side column, right below "get in touch" form.
But if you'll be on FB than you won't miss a thing, I'll link from there too.

I hope you'll see this one through though :)

I am really wanting to do more crafty/arty things this year so I would like to give it a shot. I sent a FB request. What a great idea!

Yaaay Polly! I'm looking forward to seeing what you'll come up with.

So cool Krisha! I hope you'll share it as I'd love to see it.

Count me in. As an artist, I'm always looking for ways to spark creativity. What is the January theme?

nini said...

Elilafata1 great to have you join in! January prompts are Beginnings, Friends and as a bonus, you can use washi tape. There's a new blog post about it, just have a look at the latest one.

Cindy D. said...

Hi Nini! What a terrific idea this is! I hope you have a very successful time with it (and I love that blue flower pattern on your cover)! If I wasn't so swamped I would join - maybe next time. :D

Erica said...

This looks like a lovely manageable project! I'm really looking forward to taking part.

nini said...

Great Erica, great to have you on board ;)

nini said...

Hey Cindy, it would be great to have you join in... and well, maybe you will only later on. Because you are so good with your art you that could easily fill up the entire book in just 12 days! :)
