I am participating in #MerMay on Instagram this year and I have already made it a whole week of posting daily. I’m having a lot of fun trying out new techniques, reviving my old ways and just pushing myself as much as possible. There have already been a couple that have frustrated me or that I have spent way too much time on, and in order to complete this 30 day challenge, I have to be able to complete these in a timely manner.
So far it is teaching me to relax a bit, especially posting those created with traditional media, which is WAY out of my comfort zone.
But I love growing and I really love a challenge, so it’s on!
Using a list of prompts has helped me stay on track and I’m finding that it’s actually a really fun way to generate ideas I would normally not explore.
If this continues to go well, I may redo a couple of my merms and create a zine or mermay art book. 🙂
