GEEZE!! I don’t know where in the HECK June went, but somehow, I mistakenly thought I had it all done, and not only did I not, I am LATE!! So I’m going to put both the prompts from June here in one post for you all. My apologies! I have obviously been too busy for my own good!
I Couldn’t See His/Her Face
SHOOTERS: Shoot your mug with a description of a person that you miss… one of those people that have been gone so long, you start to forget what their faces look like. Describe the things about them that make you miss them.
SKETCH ARTISTS: Sketch a faceless person.
I miss my friend J. Although I might forget what her face looks like, I can always ‘see’ her heart! I printed a picture of her in sepia then glued one of my fave post cards on her face. The quote is “No birds have ever flown as high as the heart can go.”~ Mellin de Saint-Gelais. Then I wrote some of words & phrases about the times we spent together when we didn’t have an ocean between us! I Zentangled a border using designs in the postcard & some of my own with Faber-Castell Dark Sepia pens then colored them in with Creative Living pens. Finally I took a picture with 2 cups of tea.
I’ll always love my Mama. She’s my favorite girl! ~ The Intruders
When I came up to this prompt and read it, the first person I thought of was my Mom and the first thing besides that which came to mind was this line from The Intruders song “I’ll Always Love My Mama.” Mom’s been gone for 20 years now, but I miss her like she just left for the Rainbow Bridge yesterday. I will always love my Momma! The page was done in my watercolor journal using Blick’s Liquid Watercolors and a Sharpie Marker for writing the sentiment. Quick and easy — this was my 15 minutes of creativity for the day.
She Fits The Profile
SHOOTERS: Shoot your mug with a list of things that you love, habits you have, etc. that make YOU, you.
SKETCH ARTISTS: Find pictures of things you love, etc. as in the shooter’s list, and use them to create a collage in the shape of your silhouette. Trace a picture of yourself, and use that outline. Use your computer screen if you don’t want to print a picture to use.
NOW IT’S YOUR TURN!!
- Use all or just part of the prompts.
- MAKE THEM YOURS. These prompts are IDEAS. They are not set in stone. I encourage you to stretch yourself. If you find a prompt doesn’t speak to you, think on it. Find a way to MAKE it speak to you, and go with that.
- SHOOTERS: You do NOT have to be a coffee drinker to play along! Tea, Water, Beer or the Hard Stuff. WE DON’T CARE!! Make the prompts work for you and your mug. (or lack there of)
- There is NO right or wrong.
- Share your feedback on the work of others that share here positively. ABSOLUTELY no judging of another person’s work. (If I find that people aren’t following this rule, I will remove links left by that person.)
- This is a place for you to explore! It doesn’t matter if you’ve just gotten here in the middle of the year, or if you’ve gotten “behind” and don’t create every day. It doesn’t matter if you don’t create at ALL… (although we’d love it if you do)
- Add your link to what you book or shoot in the comments section of the posts here on the blog, that you create for! Be sure to add a DIRECT LINK. (you can get this most times by clicking on the title of your post, and then copying the URL.) General links to websites will be deleted (because they make it hard for people to follow behind and find the post pertaining to this prompt) ALSO, links leading to posts that do not make it clear how they are related to the prompts will be removed.
- If you would like to “officially” sign up to be listed in our participants list, visit the sign up page, by clicking on GOT BADGE at the top of the page. (this is one area where direct links are not needed!) Ready to join THE FORCE
