Theme 2: Explosive Celebration

How you choose to interpret the theme is completely up to you. It simply needs to be tasteful – no pornography or messages of hate here. When you sit down to create, you cannot think about how people will or will not receive your work. You are required to simply enjoy the act of creating. Please see the bottom of this post for how to submit a response.




What would your inner celebration look like if it exploded right out into the world?




Warning: This post has been known to cause spontaneous singing and dancing.


Please send a picture of your design to Natasha@creativenachos.com by Wednesday, January 21st and I will post it here for the following day. Or post a link in the comments section of this post when you have completed your new creation in response to the theme so that people can visit your site and view your work. Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!

Natasha said...

Fugsly - that's great...it means that when you are sketching you will be playing and playing ALWAYS leads to something. Let it simmer...I am doing the same thing...simmering...and I bet your entry will be an ace entry!

Whyte - thank you so much. I actually have a lot of ideas to grow this and do more for Etsy artists and all artists...what do you say will you be joining??

Lilacwoman - WooooHooooo! I'm so excited you will be doing this one....thanks Janet...and you and all the rest of the talented folks here keep me inspired so it's a lovely two way street!

SalvagedExpression said...

I think I have an idea! A bunch of my stuff that I want to use for it is boxed up at my cousins but I'll just have to get creative. :)

Natasha said...

YAY Salvaged!! I can't wait to see your idea...and despite the fact that things are boxed up at the cousin's house I KNOW you'll get crazy creative and create a rockin' piece

NewLifeDesigns said...

Oh, cool, I just learned a new technique today for a piece that would fit this challenge perfectly! Imagine that? Pam

Jess said...

Oh this is awesome. Hopefully I can figure something out for the theme, should be fun!

Natasha said...

Pam - you know what that means?? You were meant to do this!! I'm super excited to hear about the new technique and see what amazing creation you apply it to.

Jess - I'm so happy you decided to participate! Let it simmer for a bit OR dance around like a loon - am I the only one who does that? - and I guarantee something will strike you. Can't wait to see what develops
