Liquid Media

Two ideas about liquid.

First, in 2015, I used the Waterlogue App to turn photos of food and drink into “watercolors”. I did it every day for a #100dayProject Instagram challenge and went way beyond the 100.

Second, today I used real watermedia (watery gouache) in another app that I usually use to convert my day job outfit textiles into circular compositions AKA #tinyplanets.

These were both originally posted on Instagram, but I like the Archive feature on Tumblr better for finding old Instagram posts.

#AtoZchallenge 2018 Exit Ramp

zzzEND

It’s time for what the April A to Z Blogging Challenge crew call the Reflection post.
Where I contemplate how my A-Z went et al.

To put it succinctly, April was a busy month.

To go into specifics:
3 blog challenges: A-Z Trucks here, A-Z Fluevog Shoes there, and a fake journaling project that this year I only posted to a private Facebook group.
Not to mention my usual 2 day jobs and a burgeoning obsession with weaving.

Most of the truck posts were completed in February and March, which made all the other activities easier to complete. I also did Sunday posts, because, why not.

I’ll now copy what I wrote on the Fluevog Conclusion because I’m feeling lazy:
A-Z, it was good.
They had Google Doc spreadsheets, they were good.
I met some new blogging buddies, that was good.
I didn’t have time to visit many new blogs. Not so good, on my part.

Big thanks to the A-Z Team for coming up with a great new format for the links and helpful tips on the A-Z Blog. You made the ride much smoother this year!

Z

I had given up on finding a Z truck. I saw another ZIM truck in SC last month, but it Zoomed past in another lane as we were making a U-turn.

Last Friday (the last day of commuting before May begins) as I contemplated my dilemma, I got to thinking about the Swift company graphic and how their stabby looking S could be considered a Z (OK, so it’s backwards). And lo and behold, a Swift truck appeared right before me in my exit lane for work. Synchronicity, my friends, synchronicity.

Zz[happy now?]

Thus concludes Trucks A-Z 2018. Will I find 26 more for next year?
Do vans instead?
We won’t find out until 2019!
