CED April Theme: Color
March 25th, 2009
The *totally optional* theme for the Creative Every Day Challenge in April will be Color!
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:
- *Capture the color around you in photographs.
- *Limit the color schemes in an art piece.
- *Try using a color you don't usually use.
- *Add a splash of color to your wardrobe.
- *Bring color into your space with flowers or artwork.
- *Learn about the psychology of color.
How to use the CED 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 try to apply colors like words that shape poems, like notes that shape music.”
Spanish Surrealist Painter and Sculptor, 1893-1983
p.s. I jumped into playing with the theme a bit early in the painting above. I loved playing around with bold, rich colors in an abstract way. This is only a snippit of it, but I think I see a mermaid in it (can't help myself!), so perhaps I'll bring her out later.
