I only remember it when I forget to wear it. #64MillionArtists… 64 Million Artists@64M_Artists Day 15 - We are Culture Identify and celebrate something you wear everyday or very often.

Took a local walk. Used @theniceboulder ‘s guide to spot homes. My eyes are drawn upwards. If I was a bug I would crawl up into the canopy and nestle in the crook of a branch . What a view I would have! #TheJanuaryChallenge #64MillionArtists DAY 4: My husband and I love #crystal inspired by our grandmothers, but we made a promise that we would use them every day and it's a lovely way to remember those who are special to us and to live in the present...#TheJanuaryChallenge #64millionartists #aspextakepart 64 Million Artists@64M_Artists Day 4 - We Are Culture Think about the things that you have collected, or kept hold of, in the past or present. Create something that describes the feelings your collected items inspire within you - a poem, drawing, story or collage... Share with #TheJanuaryChallenge #TheJanuaryChallenge #64MillionArtists Day 4 Nature Investigators Day 4 of #TheJanuaryChallenge Lost and Found. What do we keep hold of and why? Here’s a poem about a treasured old clock connecting me to my past. #64MillionArtists Day 4 #TheJanuaryChallenge @64M_Artists I've combined all three prompts of nature investigation, waterfall wonder and lost and found. I've used feathers as my focus as a twist. Poem provided in alt text. #64millionartists #mentalhealth #art #poetry #TheJanuaryChallenge #64MillionArtists Fun playing with single line drawings. #TheJanuaryChallenge #64millionartists #chesilbeach #nofilter #wintermorning #day4 #TheJanuaryChallenge 'we are human'. 'Map your mind'. I think I can safely say I had very shallow thoughts for 5 minutes, otherwise called living in the moment! #64millionartists Day 3 of #TheJanuaryChallenge #64Millionartists Challenge: "What does the word connected mean to you". I thought about neural pathways, roadways, energy grids, nervous system - all part of how we connect to each other, ourselves, and the world around. Digital drawing. 2022. #TheJanuaryChallenge Day 2 of 'we are human'. 'The marks we make' - create a picture using a print from your body as a starting point. Thumb and finger prints = Lilypup #64millionartists Day 1 of #TheJanuaryChallenge create a self portrait in one line for 'we are human'. #64millionartists #64millionartists #TheJanuaryChallenge day 3 I feel connected to nature, especially to trees - intrinsically linked. We breath out carbon dioxide - they produce oxygen. The perfect partnership. Trees figure a lot in my art, sculpture and photography Day 3 of the #JanuaryChallenge and it's all about connection. I'm following the wildcard challenge, so get prompts from each of the three themes: We are Human, We are Culture and We are Connected. A pleasing way to be creative from #64MillionArtists 64 Million Artists@64M_Artists Day 3 of We Are Connected Today’s challenge is inspired by lots of ideas that were sent to us. So, although this idea is from us at #64MillionArtists - really it’s a little bit of a lot of people’s imagination - just like the challenge. Share with #TheJanuaryChallenge I didn't really engage with Day 3 of #TheJanuaryChallenge #64MillionArtists & tbh I just wanna go to sleep, but here's something pertinent that's given me an idea for when I revisit it... Day 3 #TheJanuaryChallenge #64millionartists Create a print using painted leaves. The colours represent my Scottish/ Irish heritage. Enjoying this! Day3:#TheJanuaryChallenge #64MillionArtists Giving connect us with people and gifts remind us of the givers. Day 3 of the @64M_Artists January Challenge: Map your Mind. It started with me staring out of the window at the Welsh winter light. Although turned out being about the sun it's quite dark in places. #64millionartists Day 3 of @64M_Artists ‘Map Your Mind’ - which is 30% staring into space at my iPad bag and cup of tea, 20% bowel trouble and 50% other random rubbish #64MillionArtists #TheJanuaryChallenge Connected #TheJanuaryChallenge #64millionartists #day3 The January Challenge Remember to share your work with us, we'd love to see your creations #64millionartists #januarychallenge… Connection #TheJanuaryChallenge #64millionartists Me on a page I think. All the things that help me to feel connected and that I ‘connect’ with the word ‘connected’. ☺️ @64M_Artists #thejanuarychallenge #64millionartists It's satisfying making a paperclip chain, but equally irritating when you pull a paperclip from the tub and they all follow in a long line. #TheJanuaryChallenge #64millionartists @64M_Artists #TheJanuaryChallenge #64millionartists day3: being connected. What does ‘connected’ mean to you. Write and draw your thoughts and ideas on a small piece of paper. #TheJanuaryChallenge #64MillionArtists Day 3: What does the word ‘Connected’ mean to you? Find a small piece of paper. This piece of paper is your blank canvas! Use it to capture the images, stories or memories that you associate with the word connected.
