Creativity Challenge 2017 is 1/2 over and I have certainly not done a project a month. As a matter of fact today is all about May… which is really 3 months late! But it’s creativity, and it doesn’t happen according to a calendar – or a clock for that matter! The Creativity Challenge was really a way for me to keep creative, and to blog about it on a regular basis and although I don’t write once a month (or more) I am managing to create and blog somewhat regularly. So YEA ME!
This Creativity Challenge was… Challenging
I don’t know why, but I thought “Create Something From your Favourite Book” would be easy! I love to read… I love to write. I figured this would be a piece of cake! It wasn’t, it was a challenge! And I will be 100% honest, I don’t remember reading Alice in Wonderland. I know I did but I don’t remember it. Of course I have recently seen the movies (and the old Disney one too) and I do like the story. There was so many amazing quotes from it I figured it would be easy to come up with something interesting to create.
I enjoying the mixed media “art”. And I have dabbled a bit with creating journals too. I love journaling and it seemed like a wonderful thing to create. Paint, and embellishments, string and burlap. All sorts of different textures and shapes.
So I started and finished most of this journal in May. But it wasn’t complete and I couldn’t figure out what was wrong with it. So it sat and sat! I also couldn’t blog about it! Challenge it was because I DO NOT like to leave a project sitting too long. If i do, I am likely to never finish.
But finally I found a teapot stamp and drew a mushroom. It finished the project and I am finally satisfied with my new Alice in Wonderland journal.
Here is some details of the journal
So a challenge, yes! But I have to say I do LOVE the final result!
Now… how do I catch up on June, July and August!!! It’s going to be a busy few weeks!
