Colour Me Positive – Weekly Challenge

Who’s up for a weekly art journal challenge in 2016?   If that’s you then follow along with us as we fill your year with positive messages and creativity. Let’s take on 2016 with a happy heart and a positive mind as well as finding time every week for some creativity because let’s face it .. art makes us happy!  Sign up to the mailing list and we’ll send out a weekly reminder with the latest prompt.

If you’ve stumbled across this challenge later in the year .. it’s not too late to join in. Just jump right in and grab some inspiration. All the previous quotes and blog posts are linked down below or you can just start from the current week. We’d love you to join us.

If you’d like to join in you can SIGN UP HERE.  It is completely FREE to join. No joining fee and no specific products to buy. Just use whatever you have in your stash. The only essential is some sort of art journal that is hardy enough to take whatever you throw at it.

As long as you sign up and you are on our challenge mailing list we will send out an email to you every Friday with an Inspirational Quote and a small challenge (technique, colour, product, etc). You can choose to interpret it however you like. For example you may just do a page inspired by the quote, you may use the quote on your page, you may just use the challenge somewhere on your page. It’s entirely up to you! This is your art journal and we want you to do what ever makes you most happy.

Each week we will feature a page or two that have been created from the prompts to inspire you. These might be by a Lulu Art team member or from a local artist. You might be surprised who will pop in 🙂

We will also have a private facebook page where you can all share your pages if you choose to and chat amongst yourselves. This will be a happy place to share your successes and to motivate one another.

I’m excited to have you all join me in this year long challenge.

SIGN UP NOW for a year of positive creativity.
