July Challenges and Inspirations
Confession: I haven't really felt super-inspired lately. The shutdown of most everything and my personal want to stay safe as well as my conscious need to keep others safe has me in a bit of a cocoon, muddling through each day. I don't know why this is as I'm very much an introvert. But, I guess it's just my mindset right now. Finding inspiration online is definitely a benefit of our modern age. And, I love that there are still a few sites that challenge us with new inspiration each month. Here are the ones I know about.
- Art Journey #5 art Art Bead Scene is a short one this time. The theme is Fireworks. You have until July 24th to contribute to this theme. Remember that whatever you make, it needs to include an art bead. Head over to their blog to read all about it.
- Sarajo and her husband, Eric, like to share a photograph each month for inspiration. They call it the Honey Do List. I'm loving the pop of magenta in this month's photo. The reveal date is July 27th.
- The general monthly themes from Art Elements tend to be one of my favorite inspirations. This is probably due in part to the ability to use any medium for their theme. They've moved the reveal to The Art Elements Community on Facebook so that almost anyone can participate, and you are able to submit your contributions anytime during the month. This month's theme is Hollow.
Unfortunately, these are all the challenges I'm aware of at this time. I would LOVE IT if you would let me know if there are others out there that I've overlooked. I'll be happy to add them to this list. Or....just let me know: What's inspiring you right now?
