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!
It’s true, we need to balance our creativity between the imaginary and reality. Our reality is our very human experience and we need that to connect to the real world around us. The people around us, how we are serving others and even the mundane chores of paying bills and shopping, keep us grounded in the real world. We also need our unreal world. A world of creative imagination and impossible possibilities. We can have both. We need both, in balance. Are you grounded in the real world and giving free reign to your creativity as part of your balanced life?
Let me introduce you to the fun and quirky style of Cheryl Brown and her artwork made for the Week 14 prompt. The subtle shadows and the scratchy pen work give the work it’s own distinctive style and personality. You can see more of Cheryl’s work at MyMixedUpART over at Etsy
It took me a while to find my passion as to what type of art I wanted to pursue. As I took more classes and learned about different techniques, I fell in love with collage. And, so here I am calling myself a mixed media artist.
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.
