#creativeUNblock no.2

creativeunblock_FEB

Well hellooooo, February! You know what that means…  time for #creativeUNblock project no.2! {If you missed the January project – or have no idea what I’m talking about – no worries,  you can catch up right here.} Ok, so who’s ready for the next unblocking project from Creative Block? Me too! I’ve been wanting to do this one since the moment I got the interview back from the always inspiring, super duper creative, Portland based artist Kate Bingaman-Burt. Why didn’t I? Hm. Good question. No more procrastinating… let’s do this:

#creativeunblock // February // by Kate Bingaman-Burt p.231

Catalog the contents of your medicine cabinet/bathroom shelf : Draw, paint, photograph, or collage everything you have, and then make a poster or small book about the objects. {constraint = creation}

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

I love this. So much. When in your life would you ever document everything on your bathroom shelf, or make a bathroom zine/lotion poster for that matter? Never! {I’m not even sure what’s in there to be totally honest!} Ok, ready? Let go, have fun, and post your work on twitter and instagram with #creativeUNblock… can’t wait to see what you’ve got in your cupboards ; )

ps. Just because Kate draws everything, doesn’t mean you have to. Paint, photograph, collage, write about… document all of those bottles, jars, and random bits in your drawer/shelf/cabinet any way that suits you!

    Me too, and those bathroom shelves send a shudder down my back … My bathroom is shared with my husband and 14 year old daughter a world of grooming and cleaning!

    When I saw this one in the book I thought it sounded really fun, glad you picked it for project #2! hehe “number 2” in the bathroom…

    My husband is crying with laughter at the prospect of my completing this project. As a hypochondriac / neurotic mother / compulsive hoarder (his charming words not mine) this is going to be epic!

    fantastic idea, what i like the most is that you are jumping around the book comfortable with that am sure my girls will join in on this one as well cheers

    This is just the sort of obsessive-sorting and cataloging activity I’ve always wanted to do and never known!! haha. Can I combine this with cleaning and chucking out those few old things I dont need up the back of the shelf??! 😉

    Ironically, my medicine cabinet is mostly full of squeeze bottles of acrylic pain… I do a lot of work in my bathroom at 3am…

    […] This month we’re fulfilling Miss Kate Bingaman-Burt’s challenging task. In a nutshell, I’m selecting a few items from my bathroom shelf and create a poster out of drawings, doodles, collages, photographs or whatever comes into my mind when re-producing the items artistically. Read all about the details on The Jealous Curator’s blog here. […]
