We're Off and Running...Day ONE of the 100 Day Project!

Hey everyone!  I'm excited to share my first page for the 100 Day Project!  This one is kind of a title page, or intro page for the project...

 The Get Messy group actually gave me the inspiration for this page.  One of their current prompts is "Right Now..." which was absolutely perfect for me today!

The border is done with pieces of painting underpaper, text and photocopies of my art.  The background is liquid watercolor and neon watercolor markers.  The journaling talks about my excitement for the project, and the guidelines I have set for myself.  I set the guidelines to provide a sense of structure, which helps my swirly brain stay on track!

Here are my self-imposed guidelines for this project...

1. I will complete one journal page each day.
2. Can be any type and any size.
3. I will try to stay one day ahead, so that I can post the pages at 12:01 am on the appropriate day. For example, I did this page on Monday, so I can post it on day one (tuesday).
4. I don't have to do the pages all in one sitting, but I do have to finish one page each day and post it on instagram.

On instagram I am @shelleyrydellie, and my hashtag for this project is #100journalpagesforshelley2016. This year I will try to post here every day too.

Thanks for stopping by and sharing in my excitement!  It's so much fun to stretch yourself sometimes!

Have a wonderful day my friends!
