Inspirational Prompt Stick Challenge: Try It Tuesday # 3


Try It 3This is number 3 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.

To see the video version of this weeks Prompt Stick Challenge. There is often different information added.

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. I created this 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. 

Here are the prompts:

Red- color medium– Gelatos. If you don’t have these try to use a product that is water activated such as watercolor crayons/pastels, Inktense blocks, Neo-color IIs. I have heard that Crayola makes a similar watercolor crayon under its Twistables name.( Be sure to read the label to see if its water activated)

Purple-texture– Use music paper. You can pick up old music books at thrift stores. Alternatively you can get some online.

Green-pattern -Use border stamps. If you don’t own any you can easily make some with fun foam cut into any design and glued on cardboard.

Blue- theme- Start with a magazine phrase or image. This will have to be your first decision to set the theme. Lots of times ads use catchy sayings that work well on art journal pages.

Orange-technique- Stamp through a stencil. Place the stencil over your page and use whatever stamp you want ( homemade or otherwise) and stamp through the cut out parts of stencil. I can honestly say I’ve never done this and I am curious to see how it works.

Yellow- additional details– Add dots or circles.

As always please post your creation to the Try It Tuesday #3 album so we can all see the diversity of pages created using same prompts. The name of the Facebook Group is ” All Things Mixed Media: CreativeKady”  See you there.

To watch the creation of my page using these prompts please check out my YouTube Channel.
