Do you keep track of what week it is? Right now it’s week 40, in case you didn’t know or needed a reminder. That means I’m finally caught up with my collages. We’re right here right now. Yay!

I’ve been behind almost this entire year (or at least it feels like it) because I’ve had two really bad colds. They lasted almost three weeks each, and when you keep falling behind with a 365-project, you get really out of order with everything. But right now, in this moment, I’m caught up with making square collages one for each day of this year! It is an amazing feeling to on the last quarter of the year finally be able to say that.

365 Collages is a lot of work but so much fun /iHanna #art #collage #365somethings2018

Doing a 365 project can be as hard or as easy as you want it to. It can be a little doodle in a notebook that is always open on your desk, or a post-it-drawing you snap and share on instagram… But doing 365 collages where you wish that each one is good enough to frame is a lot of work!

That said I’m not trying to discourage anybody from doing their own challenge, no matter if it’s a month long, 100 days or even aiming to make it a year long. It is a powerful exercise that will give you a lot of satisfaction, practice and stronger backbone. With three months left of this year it’s time to start consider your interests for 2019… I’m sure there will be lots of new people doing #365somethings2018 then!?

My pile of collages from week 40

I still love my own collage project, and my pile of collages. Those solitary, happy moments strewn through they year of making is giving me meaning to an otherwise strange existence… And the creative moments on repeat might even lead you to some flow, that lovely flow…

Anyway, here’s this weeks new collages that I hope you like. As always, feel free to leave me a comment below about your own project or choosing one favorite from these and telling me why you like it! Thanks.

If you hover over each collage you’ll see the title and what number it has. These are number 273 to 279 of 365, in week 40 of 52. Only three months left of this year. Wow, how did that happened?

I scanned and uploaded these photos before remembering that the neon dot stickers I used won’t show up when I use my scanner. Here’s a photo of the collages with dots, so you can see the difference photos vs. scans above:

Neon dots were impossible to scan
Much better! I’m still a fan of neon colors and of course polka dots
