My Daily Design #366

I had many different ideas for this last day of my daily design project. I chose to settle on some fire typography, symbolising the end (of this project) and the beginning (of the new year).

I’m happy I managed to keep up with, and complete this project, designing the date in a different way every single day during 2012. There have been some good and not so good days, some hard times, and times when I felt like giving up, but I’m glad I stuck with it. I’ve enjoyed being able to experiment, although the daily time constraints were often hard to work within. I would have loved to have had more time to practice techniques and develop the ideas more. I learnt you can never run out of ideas – they are truly endless.

Thanks to all my subscribers and visitors to this website. It really helped having people following along each day, and asking me questions about it in conversation. Also a special, big thank you to my wonderful husband Raymond, who helped me every step of the way, I couldn’t have done it without him.

I look forward to lazy days at the beach and having a nice relaxing summer, but also have a few ideas in the pipeline, so watch this space. All the best for the new year and whatever it brings!

My Daily Design #363

In New Zealand we have many beautiful black sand beaches, one of which I visited the other day to collect some black sand for todays design. It’s made using the sand and a magnet. I’ve also taken a video of process, which I like much more than this photograph, as it shows the tiny grains of sand spiking up and moving around, almost like an animation, which I hope to post up at a later date. This was a bit of an experiment, but I’d like to experiment more in the future using this process.
