Colour Me Positive – Week 25

Welcome to Week 25. This week is all about Staying Grounded.

Wk 25 - Eyes on the Stars.png

In keeping with the theme of stars, like in Dani Choate’s tutorial this week, I thought this quote was appropriate.

Like all quotes, this week’s quote can mean different things to different people. To me this quote is referring to achieving greatness in your life, all the while keeping yourself grounded and humble. I’d love to hear different interpretations of this quote. What does it mean to you?

Extra Challenge:

For an extra challenge this week I want you to use stars in your work. Collage them, draw them, paint them, stamp them, stencil them, sew them or any other way you can incorporate them into your work. Why not try a combination of ways?

For those of you who would like daily or alternative prompts, I have prepared a Daily Journal Prompt List. You can find it in the Facebook Group under Files.

Colour Me Positive – Week 24

Welcome to week 23. This week is all about COFFEE……..naaa, actually it’s about What Soothes Your Soul.

Coffee Soothes.png

I am a BIG coffee drinker, but if Tea or Hot Chocolate is your beverage of choice, then replace the word ‘coffee’. This is all about what beverage you drink that makes you relax just that little bit. Particularly the very first sip, of your very first coffee of the day. You know what I mean, the one that makes you close your eyes and say to yourself ‘Ahhhhhhhh’. It’s even better if the house is silent and everyone else is still sleeping, but hey, you take it when you can get it, right?

What soothes your soul? Is it a hot drink, a glass of wine (preferably not first thing in the morning…lol), doing yoga, going for a walk, meditating, watching your kids play nicely together, while you sit back and watch without them knowing, gardening, stretching, painting, drawing, etc?

Extra Challenge:

For an extra challenge this week I want you to Do something that soothes your soul EVERYDAY. This can be as small as a hot drink or as big as you can dream up. Do something that takes you to your happy place or makes your mind say ‘Ahhhhhh’. You’re worth it.

For those of you who would like daily or alternative prompts, I have prepared a Daily Journal Prompt List. You can find it in the Facebook Group under Files.

Colour Me Positive – Week 22

Welcome to week 22 and the start of Winter (in Australia). This week is all about CREATIVITY.

Creativity

Imagine how freeing it would be if we weren’t so judgemental on our own work? Imagine if your only role was to participate in creativity and the end result didn’t matter at all. Imagine if there was no pressure at all and there was no way you could make a mistake. What or how would you create? How would this feel?

Extra Challenge:

For an extra challenge this week I want you to experiment, take risks, break the rules and have fun with your journal page.

Create as if none else will see the end result, as if the final outcome does not matter, as if your muse is in control and you are only there as a vessel to aid in this work. Follow your intuition. Don’t think. Just play. Most importantly, have fun.

Remember: There is no such things as mistakes in creativity. Only happy accidents that force you to take a different approach. Just go with these moments. Don’t fight them. Much learning happens when you continue on through these happy accidents. Trust the mess and keep going. You may be pleasantly suprised.

For those of you who would like daily or alternative prompts, I have prepared a Daily Journal Prompt List. You can find it in the Facebook Group under Files.
