Glitter Peach

Victoria Looney in Chalfont St Giles, Buckinghamshire, England is creating daily fairy-related creations at Glitter Peach... 

Why did you decide to do this project? I was inspired by the Skull-A-Day project to do my own 365 day creative challenge. I was in a creative rut and very much felt like I had lost some of my creative skill and abilities. I used to be very creative and always drawing and creating and I felt like I needed a kick-start to get back to being arty on a regular basis.

Having suffered a couple of losses close to my heart, I could feel myself losing motivation across the board and decided to challenge myself and try to motivate myself to do at least one thing every day for a year to get me back on my feet, as such.

How has doing a yearlong/daily project affected your life? This has given me something to aim towards; a target to achieve; a challenge to complete.

From the start of this project I have started to see different inspiration for various materials everywhere I go and have come across some new media that I would have never thought to use for my creative challenge (including various food items, loom bands, creating a maze & a wordsearch using Excel).

I have discovered some new techniques that I really enjoyed using including; needle felting, woven ribbons, yarn painting, lace pancakes and Zentangle to name a few.

This has really helped to motivate me and I am really enjoying getting engrossed with each new material and technique and getting back in the swing of things creativity-wise.

See all of Victoria's fairies on her site and on Instagram.
