Let’s have some fun while exercising our creativity…
Every month on the 5th I will be making a “Creative Challenge” post. Those post will be comprised of a series of prompts (with a link to their sources). I will allow myself to be inspired by the prompts that I have generated; I will create at least one piece (but hopefully several) with any medium/media of my choosing.
I invite you reader, to take a moment to generate some prompts to inspire yourself from the random generators I have selected. Or if one I have chosen for myself tickles your fancy, go ahead, let it guide you… I won’t mind…
I will post my creations on My Artwork/Portfolio site, and will create a link here. Please, if you upload your creation to your blog or website, share it with us so we can post a link!
