What is Flash Feb?

My CLmooc friends doodle every day.  Some have even invited us to a #FlashFeb — a creative prompt every day in February to respond as you wish. Find the details:

The prompt page displays a list of prompts for the twenty-eight days of February– one word prompts and an image. Click the image to a page for each prompt with suggestions and links to help get started.

February 5

Today’s Prompt: Five

I decided to create art with numbers as the basis for each motif. It’s very busy, but was fun to create for a FlashFeb project. It helps to create and build a muscle memory for lines and shapes. It is a good warm-up with just a few!

I created this busy wreath with the idea of sharing the fun process of using numbers to create designs as I learned in a festive December Este Macleod class.

So I started with numbers 0 and 1 for the first few motifs, moving on the 2, 3, 4, and finally, 5, which are the berries. I knew I could create a replay of the process to show the number “5” — 12345! for #FlashFeb:
