Taking on a challenge is a great way to push your creativity into areas you hadn't thought to tread. I'm always on the lookout for that kind of inspiration. And, I like to share it here with you each month in a quick roundup. Here's what's on the plate for April.
- Sarajo at SJ Designs Jewelry has unveiled the photo inspiration for the April Honey Do List. This is a jewelry challenge in which you use the photo that her husband, Eric, has provided as inspiration. The reveal date is set for April 25, but the linky tool is usually open for a month after that, so you have plenty of time to play along.
- On the 13th of the month, Tammy of The Tapping Flamingo on YouTube is hosting a Be Creative challenge for any medium. She will offer a creative word or phrase each month for you to use. For April, the phrase is Rain Showers. Her hashtag will change each month. The one for April is #BeCreativeAPRIL2022.
- Angela of Pirate Pretties Jewelry on YouTube has a monthly challenge. It's a birthstone theme each month with a color, metal, project type, and (optional) fun element. For April, the challenge color is diamond, the metal is silver or gold, the project type is a bracelet, and the fun elements are vintage or cross. The reveal is set for the 15th of each month on YouTube with the hashtag #PiratePrettiesJewelryChallenge and/or you can join her Facebook Group and add your reveal picture in the comments of her reveal photo.
- I recently discovered that Ina Solsbery on YouTube also has a monthly challenge collaboration. This is a general mixed media art challenge that she called #4Core because you only need to include the Four Core "ingredients" to play along. This month, those are to create in miniature (smaller than 6x6 inches), include an animal, incorporate two arrows, and submit your completed photo within your hands to show scale. She asks that submission photos be emailed to her by the end of the month so she can include them in the slideshow in her video. Watch her March #4core video to get an idea of how this works and read the details in the description.
