I’ve been a busy little bee this past month. The theme for this year is color, creativity and design. At the beginning of the year, I changed the title of the newsletter to color, creativity and design to reflect this. Now on to phase two, which is…
Color.Creativity.Design is yearly membership site dedicated to giving you tools and information to help keep your creativity flowing or help you get unstuck during those times when your Muse is on vacation.
A yearly membership includes:
Fall 2013 and Spring 2014 color recipe ebooks for Premo, FIMO Classic and Kato. 4 inspirational photo/color palettes with recipes for Premo, FIMO Classic and Kato, 6 sets of 10 Deal-A-Muse cards, 2 all new tutorials, a 3 week color mixing e-course, plus surprise bonuses. On the 1st of each month one or more new product(s) will become available for download to all members. These products will be published to this membership site before they are available to the general public and some will be exclusive “members only” items.
Click here or the image above for all the juicy details. Don’t miss out! Membership is open for enrollment now through May 1st. After that you will have to wait 3 months for the next enrollment period.
What if this isn’t for me, can I still buy the color recipe ebooks separately? Yes, the color recipe ebooks will still be sold individually, but won’t be available until a week after they have been published to the membership site.
I posted the info for Tracy Holmes’ Polymer Clay Cubed Project last month. I had purchased two Rubik’s Cubes in hopes of making two, but time got away from me as it seems to do quite often. Anyway, I did get one cube made.
There is no fee to participate, but advance registration is required. Certain logistics and guidelines have been established for the collective success of both the project and the exhibition. Detailed instructions, resources, and templates will be sent directly to each participating artist.
Deadline to register is Fri.Mar.1.2013. Deadline for shipped submissions is Fri.Mar.8.2013. Submissions will also be accepted in person at the conference any time prior to the Polymer Clay Cubed Seminar and Exhibition on Fri.Mar.15.2013. For further information and registration, please email Tracy Holmes.
All the PC3 Cubes will be on display during Tracy's Synergy3 seminar, Polymer Clay Cubed. Tracy's other seminar, The Pentaradial Palette, is full, but all the session info will be included in The Pentaradial Palette pre-conference workshop on Tuesday, March 12. If you would like to further explore colour hands on (and maybe even make a PC3 Cube or two), there are still some spots remaining.
Do you have the winter blues? Are you burnt out after the holiday rush? Is your creative muse in hiding? During 2013, I want to share some thoughts on creativity and creative exercise that will help you keep your creative mojo going strong.
Today’s Topic: Challenges
Challenges, like people, come in all shapes and sizes. Some are for a specific creative medium and others are theme based. They can be monthly, weekly or even daily. Challenges can be fabulous creativity boosters. They push you to think outside the box. Joining a challenge helps hold you accountable. Sometimes the biggest obstacle our creativity faces is just getting started.
Find and join a challenge.
To help you get started, I’ve rounded up a few challenges you may want to check out.
