Another Wild Creative Soul Creativity Challenge Project

May 2017

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.

Alice in Wonderland Journal

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.

A picture I found off the internet modge podged to the back of the journal.

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!
