Creative Every Day Theme for June: Green

June 2nd, 2014


At the end of each month I will announce the totally optional theme for the following month. For the month of June 2014, the theme will be Green. I was inspired to choose this theme because of this quote: 

Green was the silence, wet was the light,
the month of June trembled like a butterfly....
~Pablo Neruda

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 2014 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:

  • *Paint in shades of green.  
  • *Get out into Nature and get inspired. 
  • *Go green and use recycled items to create with.    
  • *Work in the garden.  
  • *Eat local foods, create a gorgeous salad, try a new recipe using greens.   
  • *Sit in the shade in the green grass and write freely.   

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!

What a lovely quote and you’ve interpreted it beautifully in your page. I love the leaping rabbit. Thanks for letting us share our pages :)

I love Pablo Neruda & this quote is gorgeous. This month’s theme fits perfectly with my focus on nature. I’ve just finished some paintings for a journal swap & posted photos on my blog. This month’s theme was Georgia O’Keeffe & although I didn’t get close to her skill or style I was completely inspired by her approach and focus.

I love your painting, Leah, with its fabulous leaping hare and swirl embellishments! Hope you & your gorgeous family are all well and happy. I’ve been a bit slack with the social networking & blogging of late but whenever I see your photos they seem full of joy.
