Challenge #121--Anything Goes POSITIVE with the Opt. Twist of: Power of Words…ART/CREATIVITY...Midway

Hey folks! Welcome back to the Path of Positivity Challenge Blog! It is the third Monday of the month and that means that it is time to present the midway for Challenge #121. It is my fond hope that each of you and your own families continue to stay happy, safe, and well, wherever it is you live in this big wide world of ours. 

As we are a unique kind of challenge blog, it is important for you to understand how things work. Please be sure to check out the START POST FOUND HERE for the specific details related to this month's challenge, and you can find out all the general details you need to know in order to participate, by clicking on the 'Challenge Details' tab (located at the top of the blog). For your convenience, a summary of the most important rules can now be found in the right sidebar under the heading 'General Rules'.
Right now, it is time to continue with our midway. Here is a refresher of the details for our current twist:

Challenge #121

Anything Goes POSITIVE with the Opt. Twist of 

The Power of Words: ART/CREATIVITY

This year's goal is to look at how WORDS can influence our artistic endeavours. To help inspire you on this journey, each month we will focus on different quotes. I will provide three to five quotes to inspire your creative projects. If none provide any inspiration, you can pick a quote or phrase of your own choosing to focus on. You can use the quote/phrase/sentiment as the focus of your creation OR you can embrace an aspect of the quote to focus on. As always, following our twists are optional.
If you do want to follow the optional twist this month, here are the quotes I've chosen for May:
“Creativity is seeing what others see and thinking what no one else ever thought.” — Albert Einstein

“Make visible what, without you, might perhaps never have been seen.” — Oprah Winfrey

“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” — Pablo Picasso

“Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.” — Edgar Degas

“You use a glass mirror to see your face. You use works of art to see your soul.” — George Bernard Shaw
As you can see, the overall theme for May is ART/CREATIVITY. If you want to follow the optional theme, you can simply use one of the quotes literally and type it out and add it to your project. However, you could also create a project with one of the quotes in mind. For example, you could create any sort of creative project that stretches you. Why not try your hand at painting a canvas? Or, you could try a mixed media project where you design a brand new approach to an old concept. There are lots of ways you could approach the quotes. And of course, if none of these inspires you, you can always find your own quote or sentiment expressing the concept of ART/CREATIVITY.

Remember, 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.
To help inspire you further down the path of The Power of Words: ART/CREATIVITY, check out the wonderful projects my Design Team had the opportunity to create. Clicking on each team member's name will take you to their blog where you can check out the details for their inspirational creations.


Thanks again to my astounding design team! As always, each of them have their own unique avenues of creation which I thoroughly admire. Each of these designs has demonstrated the theme of The Power of Words: ART/CREATIVITY splendidly, and I hope we have motivated you throughout this challenge to come up with your own work of handicraft. Be sure to go and visit these accomplished ladies so you can see just how their projects tie in to the twist.
Why not join us, if you haven't entered already? 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 often do you rely on words to inspire your creative endeavours? This month our quotes all focus on ART/CREATIVITY. The fact that you are here means that you enjoy working creatively. This month, really think about the art that you create. Is there something new that you could try or even simply a new technique. You express yourself through your artwork so what do you want to show the world? Like the quote from George Bernard Shaw says, “You use a glass mirror to see your face. You use works of art to see your soul.” What parts of your soul are you willing to share? 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.

Also, I know that the participants would love for you to go and pay them a visit. Remember we're creating a Path of Positivity to follow one project at a time and we'd love to see you somewhere on that route even if it is just by leaving a comment on an entry from someone who has touched you somehow with their project and/or post! You can find our list of participants and enter our latest challenge yourself by clicking HERE and scrolling down to the bottom of the post.

Please show your support to our wonderful sponsor, Scribbles Designs, by going over and checking out their work and saying hi if you have the chance. You may also just find an image or two to add your your collection!
