June over at the blog http://acreativedreamer.blogspot.com holds a monthly Creativity Challenge that I love to participate in. The rules are pretty simple- just create something within the month relating to that month's prompt. Can be any kind of media- a poem or story, a photo, a painting--anything!--- whatever you would like to create that fits the theme for the month. You can read about the Creativity Challenge here if you would like to play along: http://acreativedreamer.blogspot.com/p/creativity-invitation.html
The prompt for July was "dream". Wow! What a great prompt! I have to admit that the prompt scared me at first. My brain went into overload and was way tooooo serious right from the beginning. I was frozen and I couldn't even begin to think what I would make that would do this prompt justice. However.......after some excellent advice from friends and some pondering I came up with a couple of pieces. The first piece is one I made after telling myself that I was being too serious, and I just needed to come at this prompt from a silly point of view. So........here is my version of what I think my chickens must dream about when they fall to sleep at night :) Mmmmmm- gourmet worms- a chicken's favorite dream.
After I finished this piece I decided that I would attempt to do a more serious piece in my art journal. When I was a little girl I had big dreams about exactly how my life would turn out. Those dreams did not happen for me, but other dreams replaced them and that is part of what makes life so interesting and worth living and I really wouldn't have things any other way.
Please pop on over and visit June's blog after the first of August to see what everyone else has created for the Creativity Challenge :) Thank you for doing these June!!!
