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!
I don’t know about you, but one of my biggest anchors is fear. I see this and wonder what I might achieve, and what it would feel like to achieve, that thing if I just let go of the fear. Fear can look like worry or comparison or doubt. I would rather feel light and untethered as I leap into my desires instead of concerning myself with falling down and bruising a knee. Who knows, I might actually soar. What about you?
This week I am featuring work from Cath Young. Cath gets a lot of inspiration from her son. I like how her gesso(?) brush strokes have created another layer of texture to her graphite sketch to add a lot of interest to the piece. Cath used the Week 9 inspiration for this sketch. You can see more of what Cath is up to on her blog Changeling Things
I joined Colour Me Positive two years ago because I thought it would help me develop a daily art practice, and it has! My background is in the arts, in theater, and that informs my visual art. I like to think of my art as a form of story telling too.
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.
