Hello and welcome to the Colour Me Positive Weekly Creative Challenge! This is an opportunity to get your creative juices flowing with weekly prompts to inspire you and support you in your creative journey. Each Friday a new prompt will be posted every Friday on this blog. You can get the prompt delivered straight into your inbox by subscribing HERE.
The prompt includes a quote, an image, and a colour frame and you are free to use any or all elements as a springboard for your project. There isn’t a wrong way to interpret the prompt, simply allow it to guide your creativity in a way that feels good to you. You don’t need specific tools, products or materials, you just need you!
Winnie the Pooh is a very popular fictional character but his words are full of profound insights into our human nature and understanding. I think nearly all of us can relate to this. We have small things, people, pets or momentos that fill our heart with joy, love and wonder.
This week our featured artist is Simon Robinson. He made this page in his art journal for the Week 9 prompt. Simon has a very distinct style and I love the carefree approach to his art making. I couldn’t love that huge moon any better with it’s marker strokes visible and a sliver of the background paper left undone to create the edge. Cheers!
I got interested in mixed media after going to an exhibition of Altered Books at the Comox Valley Art Gallery
I journal daily to reflect my day, good and bad in an artistic way. I joined CMP at the start and have completed every week. I love to collage and use as much recycled product as possible. I have never bought an actual journal. I have made them or repurposed an old book.
Did you know there is a Colour Me Positive Facebook Community? Our Facebook group is a safe, welcoming space for members to gather, share and support one another. You can find the group HERE.
You are welcome to share the art you’ve created using the prompts, and encouraged to share and engage with others.
*This group is for the purpose of sharing the art you create using the weekly prompts as well as support and community.
It is not for promotion and all interactions will be kept positive, respectful and encouraging.
