Creative Every Day Theme for June: Metamorphosis
May 26th, 2011
At the end of each month I will announce the totally optional theme for the following month. For the month of June 2011, the theme will be Metamorphosis. Thank you to Staz for the theme idea!
As always, this month's theme for the Creative Every Day Challenge is totally optional. Use it if it inspires you, continue being creative every day in your own way if it doesn't, or do something in between. You can sign up for the 2011 Creative Every Day Challenge anytime. More info can be found here and the sign-up page is here.
I'll be posting about the theme throughout the month on the blog to help keep you inspired. You can use the posts here for jumping off points or interpret the theme in your own creative way. If you need some suggestions, here are a few ideas to get you started. You could:
- *Are you going through a metamorphosis in your life? Focus on it through art this month.
- *Write a poem about the biggest change you've gone through this year.
- *Capture the metamorphoses that occur in nature through photography or video.
- *Record the changes the in yourself through a daily portrait.
- *Write free-form about the changes, big and small, you'd like to make in your life.
- *Make a mobile of colorful butterflies.
- *Take the time to go through the caterpillar phase of change, get quiet and still.
- *Change up something in your daily life through your wardrobe, the way you go home from work, or what you eat for lunch. See how it changes the way you look at life.
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. Feel free to focus on the theme in your creative activities for the entire month or as much as you'd like.
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.
And have fun with it!
