Colour Me Positive – Week 46

Welcome to Week 46.

Wk46. Your Strength.png

What makes you different? What weird and wonderful attributes to you possess? Instead of comparing ourselves to others and thinking of our differences as negatives, why not try seeing them as positives?

Imagine how boring life would be if were all the same. Embrace your weird, wonderful, and quirky self.

As with every week, this is a journal prompt to jumpstart your creativity. You can use these word or alter them to suit. Choose completely different words if you like. You don’t even need to add text to your artwork if you don’t feel you’d like to. There are no set rules.

Extra Challenge:

For an extra challenge this week I challenge you to include text relating to what makes you different. Good 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 45

Welcome to Week 45.

Wk45-Keys

This week I’ve gone with a little humour. I think humour plays such an important role in a happy life. It’s such a great feeling to laugh or to see someone laughing so hard that tears roll down their face.

I sure can relate to these words. I hope you can also relate and it puts a smile on your face.

As with every week, this is a journal prompt to jumpstart your creativity. You can use these word or alter them to suit. Choose completely different words if you like. You don’t even need to add text to your artwork if you don’t feel you’d like to. There are no set rules.

Extra Challenge:

For an extra challenge this week I challenge you to include keys in your work. Have you ever thought about using foil in your work? Why not try making foil keys to include in your work. Good 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.

For an extra challenge this week I was you to google ‘mixed media art techniques’ and find a technique that you’ve never tried before. See where you can take these newly learnt skills. Even if you don’t like the whole process, take what you do like and run with that.

Colour Me Positive – Week 39

Welcome to Week 39.

Wk39-Mosquito

It’s hard to imagine that one person can make a difference in the world. Sometimes I think it is easier to believe that this is true, if you bring your thoughts closers to home.

Instead of thinking of ‘how can I make a difference in the world?’, why not start with ‘how can I make a difference in ?????’s life?’. If this seems too big, then why not start with ‘how can I make a difference in ?????’s day?’ (Obviously the question marks represent someone’s name. Whoever you choose.)

Just making someone smile can have a huge impact on the rest of the day. Why not smile at someone today?

Extra Challenge:

For an extra challenge this week and still keeping in the spirit of Inktober, start with an acrylic background in various opaque light colours and doodle over the top in dark ink. Create a whole page of doodling. 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 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.

Week 38 Challenge Prize:
