Creative Monday January 4th 2010

January 4th, 2010

I was just saying to myself the other day, “Hey Blade,” because me and my self are on nick name basis, “why don’t we find some kind of challenge to do where we have to art every single day in some fashion?”

And I responded, “Pray tell, whatever do you mean?”

“Well,” I said, “we’re always trying to encourage people to create something everyday for at least 10 minutes a day.  What if we had some kind of challenge to join where we did just that?”

“I believe you have hit upon something there,” I said. “Let’s Google ‘Create Every Day’ and see what we get.”

Lo and behold I found Creative Every Day! OK, it didn’t really happen that way.  What actually happened was I saw a TON tweets on Twitter that ended with the “hashtag” #CED2010.  Now if you don’t know, a hashtag is a marker of sorts. It allows people to search on Twitter, and really any other site, for like minded themes.  Usually it’s a group name or some other way to make a search easy.  So I searched for CED2010 and that’s how I found it.  :)

From the website:  Creativity is meant in the broadest sense, so it doesn’t have to be something art related. Your creative acts could be in cooking, taking pictures, knitting, doodling, writing, dancing, decorating, singing, playing with your kids, brainstorming ideas, gardening, or making art in the form of collage, paint, or clay…or whatever!

Of course I am doing it.  Mostly because I don’t have enough to do with my spare time.  On Mondays, we are supposed to update our blogs about what we have done to be Creative Every Day!

  • Friday, January 1st, I shot video for the spray paint workshops on Artjournaling.ning.com.
  • Saturday, January 2nd, I recorded a song for this week’s youtube video.
  • Sunday, January 3rd, I spray painted elements for my journal and my video.
  • Monday, January 4th, I spray painted a scene in my journal:

You may see me traveling up and down the highways of Oklahoma looking for the next place to sketch, paint, sing, dance, write, photograph or simply meditate. I have begun a journey that once set upon, there is no turning back. You can share in my blunt force journey through the art world on my weekly U-stream broadcast

    Wonderful journal spread. I have to check back in and see what you’re doing. I’ve been secretly fascinated by spray paint ever since I dated a graffiti artist in high school. ;)

    p.s. Love how you refer to yourself as Blade!
