Creative Every Day Theme for June: Boundaries

May 31st, 2015

At the end of each month I will announce the totally optional theme for the following month. June's theme is Boundaries

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 2015 Creative Every Day Challenge anytime. More info can be found here and the sign-up page is here.

When time allows, I'll be posting about the theme 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:

  • *Explore your personal boundaries in free form writing.    
  • *How can you push the boundaries of your work this month?     
  • *Play with the idea of the boundaries of a place with maps.          
  • *Push your comfort zone boundaries and use an unusual palette.   
  • *Play with pushing boundaries through scale, either very large or very small pieces.          

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!

I love this painting so much… the “fly, fly, fly” is a lovely touch. The theme for the month is a powerful one as well. I look forward to exploring it with visual art as well as in my writing. Brava!

Oh, the serendipity of this powerful painting + this theme! ♥
