How do you keep creating, keep moving your hands, keep showing up to the blank canvas when life is busy and demanding?
Two things that work for me- a challenge (publicly declared) and collaboration, playmates to make it fun, spur you on and inspire.
And this fits the bill on both of those. Annie Hamman and I have teamed up to do a 30 Faces in 30 Days Challenge, with prompts to make it fun and interesting & we'd love it if you would like to join us. The more the merrier. Already this challenge is gaining momentum, I can feel the energy around it forming as many have already committed to joining us. Woot Hoot.
☆ Create- paint, draw, journal a face a day as inspired by the prompts above.
☆ If a face a day is too much for you, don't let that stop you, do what feels right for you- we'd love you to play along in whatever way feels right to you.
☆ Share to Facebook &/or Instagram with the hashtags #30faces30daysprompts & #soulfulfaces
☆ Invite your friends to join us- the more the merrier
☆ Check out what others are doing by following the hashtags
☆ Support each other (comment and share the love)
☆ Be kind to yourself (think of this as building muscles rather than producing "art"- process is just as delicious as outcome) & let that gremlin know that he is not driving
☆ There is no "right" way to do this- make it your practice
☆ Because a creative practice is just that- a practice
☆ Because there is magic built when we do a little bit each day
☆ Because there is power & energy in the collective creating together
☆ Because edges need to be gently stretched
☆ Because your gremlins will find a zillion reasons why you shouldn't create but we do it anyway
☆ Because it will nurture your soul
☆ Because LIFE
Below you can see the faces I created last time I challenged myself to a face a page (more here)- I can't believe I am doing it again so soon!!
Each day I will post on Instagram and Facebook for the prompt done (you can find them with the hashtag) and once a week I will do a weekly wrap up here on my blog.
I can't wait to see if you'll join us Xx
