Inspirational Prompt Stick Challenge : Try It Tuesday: Week 2

Try It 2

This is the second of a bi-weekly inspiration prompt challenge. Every second week I will pick one of each color of my Inspirational Prompt Sticks and  throw out an invitation on YouTube and on here. I selected the prompt sticks on video. See the video version of this weeks Prompt Stick Challenge.

Try to use each prompt. You can do them in whatever order works best for you and your creative muse. If you don’t have a product listed, do not feel that you need to go out and buy it. Make a substitution as you see fit. You can make these as ATCs (Artist Trading Cards), ICAD ( Index cards), small journal pages or large.

When done, please post on the new Facebook Group entitled, All Things Mixed Media:CreativeKady. You don’t have to do every challenge. You are free to pick and choose. 

I created the above Facebook group so we can have a conversation about what we are all  sharing. I want to promote the development of “creationships” between you and me, and between you and others traveling the same creative path.

You don’t have to wait to post to join All Things Mixed Media:CreativeKady. Search for it and sign up today. As the group gets going I will be posting inspiration quotes, technique or organization hints, and well all things mixed media. If you have suggestions of things you would like to see in the group do not hesitate to ask. 

Here are the prompts:

Red- color medium– Liquitex Acrylics – you can use any acrylic you have. Liquitex Basics are thicker or more full bodied which will allow the use of different techniques

Purple-texture– Use scraps. This is the time to use those paper towels, coffee filters  or delli paper colored with unused paint. You can also use scraps of scrapbook paper, tissue paper, book paper etc etc.

Green-pattern -Doodle a border. This can be done before or after page is done. Typically done with  black or white, but anything goes.

Blue- theme- Start with an inspirational quote .  Whatever quote you pick, will determine the theme of the page. You probably will want to pick this first. Visit Pinterest and search for inspirational quotes or visit my Pinterest site and check out the boards I have that already are packed full of inspirational quotes. Search for Creativekady when in pinterest.

Orange-technique- Leave white space. This is often very difficult for all of us. We tend to fill the page with color. This time we have to plan to have white space. Hmmmm

Yellow- additional details-Outline something. You can outline with charcoal pencil, watercolor or Inktense pencil, fineliner or liner brush and acrylic paint.
