Creative Every Day Theme for July 2014: Fireworks
July 7th, 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 Fireworks! It seemed like a good month for it, especially after I saw my 3 year old firework experience her first fireworks at a Fourth of July celebration. I was thinking not only of actual fireworks, but also of the Katy Perry song in which she encourages you to be your own firework, letting your colors show. Ever seen the video?
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:
- *What colors would you be if you were a firework? Use those colors to paint with.
- *Start with a black surface, like the night sky and work with bright color on top of it.
- *Write about how you let your true colors show.
- *Plan a celebration, big or small. Just for you or for loved ones.
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!
