Colour Me Positive

Colour Me Positive – Week 38

Welcome to Week 38.

Wk38-Crayons

Of course this quote is saying that no matter how the past has treated you, you still matter and have value.

Do you remember when you were younger, when a broken crayon may have been a disaster and was thrown out? This used to be me. These days though, every crayon has various ways to be utilised, no matter how many pieces it is broken into.

You should see my Caran D’Arch Neocolor II Crayons. When I get a new colour the first thing I do is break them in half. Why?

Firstly it’s so I can have half in my studio and put half in my travel pencil case, which I keep in my handbag.

Secondly, it encourages you to use it, as apposed to not wanting to waist it. How many supplies have you not used or not used much, as you don’t want it to run out or it’s too good to use?

There are so many ways to use a crayon. Just look at the ‘melting crayons’ art fad. Sometimes you just have to think outside of the box.

Extra Challenge:

For an extra challenge this week and still keeping in the spirit of Inktober, try doing as much of your work in ink. Then use Neocolor II water-soluble crayons to add colour. (why not used regular crayons if you don’t have Neolcolors?) Best of luck.

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 37

Welcome to Week 37.

Wk37-Life is like a Camera

This is such a great analogy. Life is like a camera. It’s about having a go, treasuring the good moments, learning from your mistakes and trying again, if things don’t work out.

Life is certainly filled with many ups and downs, but that’s what makes life interesting, as well as often leading to inspiration for our artwork.

Extra Challenge:

For an extra challenge this week and still keeping in the spirit of Inktober, try doing as much of your work in ball point pen only. Try staying with a main colour, adding a hint of another in focal points. Best of luck.

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.

The connections we have with others are so important. However not all connections are everlasting.

Extra Challenge:

For an extra challenge this week. I want you to use ripped up paper to collage into your journal to create the words and images and use one fine liner/pen/paint pen to outline everything. Best of luck.

Colour Me Positive – Week 32

Welcome to Week 32. This week’s prompt is about Embracing Uncertainty.

Embrace Uncertainty

My apologies once again for falling of the face of the Earth. As you may have read in the Facebook Group, I’ve had some personal issues to deal with lately.

What if we fell in love with not knowing what’s coming next? What if not knowing made us happy? How boring would life be if we knew everything that was about to happen to us, right before it happened? I think happiness comes with accepting ‘whatever will be, will be’. What do you think?

Extra Challenge:

For an extra challenge this week. I want you to grab a dozen or supplies, randomly and place them side by side in front of you. Now I want you to pick up numbers 1, 3, 4, 7 and 11. Better yet, get a friend or spouse to randomly choose 5 items from your art supplies for you to use. Try your best to stick to these items only. Best of luck.

Colour Me Positive – Week 31

Welcome to Week 31.

Enjoy The Adventure

Sometimes life takes you down a path that is not the most desirable. At times like these I think it helps to try and see the positive things around you and try to enjoy these as much as possible. Maybe, just maybe this will help to balance out the negative.

Extra Challenge:

For an extra challenge this week. Try going back to basics and using as much coloured pencil in your work as possible. I’m sure we all can remember colouring with pencils as a child. Remember, it IS ok to go outside of the lines and not colour in perfectly. Perfect is boring.

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 30

Welcome to week 30. My apologies for week 30 being a week late. I hope the week off gave you time to catch up.

Wk30-Girl Crown

Sometimes life throws you a curve ball or two, or maybe more and can stop you dead in your tracks. You may have even seen it coming.  It could also decide to sneak up behind you, when you least expect it and totally blindside you, knocking you off of your horse (so to speak).

Maybe it’s a wake up call, telling you to stop and reassess. Reassess your job, family, friends, your relationships, habits, or way of life in general. It could be anything that you’ve been ignoring, neglecting or simply is not serving you and needs addressing right now. Maybe it’s a situation you’ve been pretending isn’t happening, for all these years, telling yourself that this way is best for everyone. But is it really? Is it best for you?

It could be a warning of sorts. Is the Universe trying tell you something? Maybe the Universe has been trying to tell you something, but for some reason you’re not listening. Sometimes it takes major curve balls to smack you along side your head to get you to pay attention.

Maybe it’s simply a message that needs to be heard. A message to remind you to start really living, To take a chance, to create a life that makes you happy. Life is certainly too short to spend it being miserable.

Imagine your life is a novel. What would you like the rest of the book to look like?  What changes need to be made to get you there?

So yes, I have fallen off of my horse due to a few curve balls and am still attending my wounds. I will eventually get back up on that horse. So please bare with me while I adjust my saddle. My apologies again for missing a week.

Extra Challenge:

For an extra challenge this week. I want you to go out into nature to create. Even if it’s just a quick sketch or a jotting down of ideas. Spend some time alone, outside, enjoying the weather. Sketch it all out in graphite first. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes scribble it down and you can make corrections later.

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.
