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.

Colour Me Positive – Week 21

Welcome to Week 21. This week is all about G.E.M. Gratitude, Empathy and Mindfulness. Clicking on the below image will take you to the Facebook group.

Gratitude Empathy Mindfulness

This week a gentleman by the name of  Hugh van Cuylenburg spoke to the Warrnambool community about ‘The Resilience Project’. Although I couldn’t make it, my husband recorder the audio on his phone, so I could listen to it.

In his talk, Hugh talks about how to improve mental health and therefore one’s happiness. This talk was relevant for everyone, from children right through to elderly.

Hugh talks about three key aspects in regards to improving your happiness and they are Gratitude, Empathy and Mindfulness. Here is Hugh during part of a talk.

If you don’t want to watch it all, listen from 13.55 where he talks about GRATITUDE.

Hugh’s company has two different journals that you can purchase to help you on your journey if you are interested. You can find them HERE.

(No, I have no affiliation with Hugh or his company, just sharing some worthwhile information that may help you).

Extra Challenge:

For an extra challenge this week. Starting tonight, I want you to right down 3 things that went well for you today and continue this for as long as you can. Aim for 42 days if you can. Maybe this can be the under layer of your journal pages or you can include them as your last layer. Anything goes. Good luck.

Colour Me Positive – Week 20

Welcome to Week 20. This week is all about HONESTY.

Wk20-Honesty

I was always taught that ‘Honesty is the best policy’ and I try to install this into my own children. Sometimes they can be brutally honest, but I appreciate their honesty none the less.

How are you going to put HONESTY into your journal pages this week?

Extra Challenge:

For an extra challenge this week. I want you to use a product or a colour that you rarely use. Maybe it’s a colour that you don’t like or a product that you’ve had for ages, but never got around to using. Be honest. Choose your least favourite supply. The one that is collecting dust on the shelf or tucked away at the back of a draw. See if you can create with this product or colour until you come up with something you like. Even if you have to add some of your favourite supplies with it. Get it out and use it.

Experiment with it. Play with it. Try using it in different ways or with different colours. Don’t let you least favourite art supply or colour go to waste.

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.
