One project I’m working on during my attempt to try to develop a creative habit in my life is to complete a wood burning tile project.
For my birthday, my boyfriend designed a cool matching game. Once you turn over a match both people do the action and everybody wins. He created four matches so far: Cat/Cow pose, Invert, Piggyback, and Climb. He intentionally left some tiles for me to complete so that we have both contributed to it’s creation. I have never done wood-burning before, so it will also be a cool foray into a new art form. I was inspired by what he has done already. Here is the inventive pouch that holds the game pieces, instructions are burned into the inside leather. These are the birch tiles he made and wood-burned with action matches that made me excited to try my hand at wood working.
I began by sketching a female figure in forward fold (Jan. 18th), which worked out well as another goal of mine is to do more drawing from my imagination. Yesterday (Jan. 20th) I began to turn some of these sketches into wood burned tiles after Taylor taught me how to use the tool and refuel it. I will continue posting new wood burns and sketches here as I create them.
