Ch. #118--Anything Goes POSITIVE with the Opt. Twist of: Design a Creation Inspired By MUSIC

Hello everyone and welcome to the Path of Positivity Challenge Blog! It is the first Monday of the month and it is time for our latest challenge to begin! It is hard to believe that we've come to the end of another year already! We hope that you and your families continue to stay healthy and safe out there, especially as you prepare for the holiday season ahead. 
Since we are not your typical challenge blog, it is important for you to understand how things work in order to be sure you are eligible to win any of the prizes offered. If you are new to this unique challenge, you can find out the impetus behind why I started it under the 'Introductions' tab and you can find out all the details you need to know in order to participate, in the 'Challenge Details' tab (both tabs located at the top of the blog). For your convenience, a summary of the most important rules can also be found in the right sidebar under the heading 'General Rules'.
Right now, it is time to get down to the business of our latest challenge. Here is what you need to know...


Challenge #118

Anything Goes POSITIVE with the Opt. Twist of 

Design a Creation Inspired By MUSIC

This year's goal is to take a look at the things around us that can inspire us in our creative journeys. As such, if you would like to participate in the optional twist this month, we want you to Design a Creation Inspired By MUSIC.
Music can have a positive effect on people. It can assist in relaxation, help reduce stress and even increase our productivity. It also has the ability to change our mood. Certain pieces of music can make us feel happy, sad, romantic, or excited. When we hear a song that we love, it can instantly change our mood and make us feel better. It brings people together, helps us to express our emotions and can even be a form of therapy. 
Whether you’re belting out your favourite power ballad in the shower or head-banging to aggressive metal in your car, music has a way of transporting us to another place. At this time of year we are surrounded by Christmas music. For many people, Christmas music helps to bring about feelings of happiness and warmth inside. It's the perfect way to get into the holiday spirit. Whether you're listening to Christmas carols, or modern pop songs with a holiday twist, Christmas music will hopefully put a smile on your face. It needs to be said though that Christmas can also be a difficult time for some people. Especially those on their own, or those who've lost loved ones. If you fall into this category, it is understandable that Christmas music may have the opposite effect. If you do happen to be feeling down, whatever the reason, put on your favourite feel-good tunes, whichever type of genre they may fall into, and let the power of music work its magic.
If you want to follow the optional twist this month, it is time to show the world how MUSIC has inspired you in your creative journey. Remember though, the twist is completely optional and you don't need to follow it in order to win. However, in order to be considered eligible for this month's goodies, remember that general types of projects/posts will not qualify for the honours and prize UNLESS they are also positive, inspirational, motivational or encouraging in some nature. Additionally, even if a project may qualify as positive, if your post promotes negativity, hatred or anything of an abhorrent nature, your project will be disqualified. Honours and Prize include:
  • $6 worth of images from Scribbles Designs, for a person chosen in a random draw based on all qualifying entrants.
  • A badge for the following honours: Top Pick, Voter's Choice, Most Inspirational, Random Winner, DT Delight.
Now check out what my amazing design team came up with to inspire you. Clicking on each team member's name will take you to their blog where you can check out the details for their inspirational creations.


My wonderful design team continues to outdo themselves time and time again! They each have their own style and clever interpretation of the twist. Even after all this time, I continue to be awed by the scope of excellence in their work! Each of these artful conceptions has showcased the notion of MUSIC wonderfully and I hope we have motivated you to embark on your own journey of creativity. Be sure to go and visit each team member so you can see how her project further connects to the twist.

So what are you waiting for? Create a project and/or post that is positive, inspirational, motivational or encouraging in some nature and join our link up. How about stretching yourself by also opting to follow the twist?! While it isn't mandatory, we'd also love to find out how this month's twist affects your own life. How are you influenced by music? Are there certain types of music or specific songs or artists that you listen to over and over? Do you listen to music to help spur you into creativity? You can write a sentence or two in the body of your post, write a sentence at the bottom of your post next to the link up for this challenge, or simply leave a comment on this post if you'd like. Finally, remember that we're trying to create a Path of Positivity so if you have some time, please visit other people participating throughout the month.

I hope to see you back next week when voting will [hopefully] begin on the Top Picks for Challenge #117. There will be a separate post detailing those picks where you will have the opportunity to vote on the creation or post that you have found to be the most positive, inspirational or encouraging of the chosen picks.

Then, be sure to join us again on December 18th when we'll be back with our midway featuring more great projects. 

If you ever have any questions be sure to EMAIL ME or just leave me a comment.

We look forward to seeing you participate!
