The Ugly Art Club – 5 min. challenge

Hello everyone, have you been following the Ugly Art Club on Instagram? I stumbled upon them, because I follow DeeDee and Tiffany on Insta and I found the idea very interesting. Do 5 minutes of art EVERY DAY, no matter how pretty or ugly. Just sit down for 5 minutes and do some fun creating. It could be cookie decorating, knitting, mixed media, or whatever it is that tickles your fancy. I am going to do mixed media with paper and stuff. And junk.

So here is day one of #tuac5minchallenge:

And here is the video 😉 – you will see me panicking about the time, because I set a timer. BUT it was fun, even though I´m totally freaked out about the time running. What did I learn from day one?

I learned that:

  1. You have no time to think what to do next. Which is good, because you are not able to overthink.
  2. You should check that your tool work, before you start. LOL!
  3. It would be good to have all kinds of alternatives AROUND, because 5 minutes is SOO short a time.
  4. Because I didn´t have time to think, I made very random choices, which maybe in the long run teaches me something.
  5. I didn´t think what I was doing much, because of the time running. Which is good.
  6. I think there is potential to develop thru the 5 minutes in your creative ways and discover something new. This is FUN!

I don´t know if I´ll be able to make a piece every day. Or a video. But I also might just try to make a project over several days, 5 minutes a day. Well see. But I´m going to give this challenge a try – in my own tempo.

Thanks for watching and stopping by!
