Early next week, I will be providing information along with a time and date for the forum discussion about the upcoming project with the Second Grade class. I look forward to seeing you.
Welcome to the 2nd Participant Inspired Theme designed by Amanda, creator of Persistent Green. Amanda is a continual inspiration to me and I know from many of the weekly comments, she is an inspiration to you as well. Her willingness to take risks with her art and truly open herself has led to the creation of phenomenal pieces of work that stir the imagination and inspire. This week's theme is no exception. I think it is exceptional! I am truly excited to see what everyone will create!
Remember, 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.

The work submitted must be something you have created and/or worked on between the time the theme was revealed and the Thursday unveiling. Please submit your response to Natasha@creativenachos.com no later than end of day Wednesday, April 22nd if you would like it to be posted on Thursday, April 23rd. OR send me a link to your response to include in the comments section of the post.
With your response please include:
1. Your name - either first name, shop name or both.
2. The name of your piece (if you choose to give it one)
3. Something you'd like to share (process of creation, idea behind piece) if you'd like to share anything
4. The shop and/or blog links you'd like to include
5. Two photos of your piece or of each of the pieces (3x5 or 4x6 and 72dpi or a max of 96dpi - if you need any help with that please don't worry I'd be happy to help!)
Most importantly, allow yourself to roam along the creative landscape and uncover true beauty! Enjoy yourself :)
I will be doing more Participant Inspired themes. If you would like to submit an idea, please send an email to Natasha@creativenachos.com.
Thank you again, Amanda, for such incredible inspiration. I can't wait to play and really can't wait to see what everyone creates!
