CED March Theme: Dreams
February 23rd, 2009
The *totally optional* theme for the Creative Every Day Challenge in March will be Dreams.
How can you use this theme in your creations? Well, you could use the previous themes to help you brainstorm by getting playful and writing all the ways you could intepret the theme. Or perhaps you will dream something up?
If you need some suggestions, I will be posting about the theme throughout the month. Here are a few ideas to get you started. You could:
- *Keep a dream journal
- *Use your dreams (or nightmares) as the basis for art
- *Read about artists who used dreams as a source of inspiration
- *Explore your dreams for the future in a dream board
- *Practice Dreaming Big
- *Turn your dreams into poems
- *Play with visualizations to spark your creativity
How to use the themes:
If you're feeling creatively stuck or blocked at any point during the month, use the theme as a source of inspiration to get you moving.
Using the theme is entirely optional for CED participants. Use it if it inspires you, ignore it if it doesn't. I'll be sharing posts throughout the month around the theme (among other things) to get you thinking about how to incorporate it into your life. I'd love to hear how you use the theme in your creative world.
Feel free to focus on the theme in your creative activities for the entire month or as much as you'd like.
And have fun with it!
I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious. -Andrew Wyeth
p.s. The painting above was one I was working on this week and it seemed to fit the them nicely. It was created with acrylic and ink on watercolor paper. I added the theme word to it in Photoshop.
