Twinkle, twinkle little butterfly


Day 3 – Use a nursery rhyme or other children’s song as your source material today.

I was all about the stars growing up, From Twinkle to Star Light, Star Bright, I wished and sang and wished some more. I don’t remember exactly what I wished for, but I remember looking up at the stars and I still look up every chance I get.



In the palm of my hand


Day 1 – Make something that fits in the palm of your hand using only the materials in your immediate environment.

So, just in case you don;t know. I’m rejoining the CreativeSprint community for the month of October. Our goal, to do something creative every day for thirty days.

I’ve chosen Photoshop as my medium and butterflies as my theme. Here is the Day 1 result and my first two attempts. (They were too cool not to share.)

Butterfly Collage

CreativeSprint is starting back up October 1. I’ve decided to use Photoshop as my medium for this challenge, with the theme still being butterflies (of course). So, I’ll be playing around a bit trying to sharpen my rudimentary PS skills, and hopefully posting a bit more often.
Here’s a little something that came as a result of this evening’s messing around…


Getting my #CreateSprint on…again

Well, I wasn’t sure if I would do this again as I currently find myself trying to keep up with my Butterfly-a-Week personal challenge. The more I looked at the email in my inbox, though, the more it called to me. I had so much fun creating things, posting them and looking at what everyone else posted. How could I pass that up, really?

So, here I go again…

Won’t you join me this time? Please visit CreativeSprint and check out the stories. If you find it as inspiring as I do, sign up for the 30-day challenge. It starts October 1, 2016 so you have time to get some mind-space around the idea.

The beauty is, do what you can. If you find a challenge too daunting, use it as a springboard to challenge yourself to come at the idea another way – choose the opposite/inverse, play with the words or collaborate with a friend. It’s a creative challenge after all and at the very least, it will get your juices flowing and ideas filling up your journal or sketchbook.

I hope to see you out there!
