I did something I haven’t done in YEARS today–peel some of the wrapper off a crayon! I must’ve done this a million times growing up and it felt so familiar and nostalgic.

Since this mini experiment of creating daily takes inspiration from my love for art as a child, crayons seemed like the perfect fit for day 1!

Sitting on the floor, I closed my eyes and grabbed the first crayon.

I was really excited to open them and see how the page looked. I filmed the process so I could watch it unfold–you can see it here. There was more white space than I had expected, but I really liked what happened here.

It might look like a 3 year old did this and I think that’s true–the 3 year old me is here in these lines and shapes and colors :)
