Choosin’ Is Hard

In the elusive pursuit of having the discipline to make art daily and because of my recurrent indecision about how to begin a project, I have decided to adhere to a list of surface design ideas which I compiled one day while procrastinating. The intention is to incorporate each individual technique or element on the list into a project everyday sticking to the alphabetical order. Here is the list if anyone would like to play along:

3-D applique

applique

batting

block printing

burning (safely using a heating tool)

clay

collagraphy

devore

drawing with pen/ink

embellishments

fabric manipulation

fabric paper

foiling

gel medium

gel printing

gold leafing

hand stitching/embroidery

jewels

markers

masking

mica

monoprinting

natural dyeing

over dyeing

painting

painting fusible web

paint mediums

paintstiks

paper

printing/painting using found objects

resin

resists

rubbings

sequins

shisha mirrors

stamping

stenciling

stones

sun printing

thread painting

tie dye

transfer (digital)

trapunto

trim

This should be a fun and challenging exercise. Why am I doing this again? Oh yeah. That discipline thing. I’ll start tomorrow. Wish me luck!
