Theme 23: Then I saw red....

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.



“Red sky at night, sailors delight; red sky at morning, sailors warning.” ~ Proverb


“An optimist is a person who sees a green light everywhere, while a pessimist sees only the red stoplight. . . The truly wise person is colorblind.” ~ Albert Schweitzer


“He liked to observe emotions; they were like red lanterns strung along the dark unknown of another's personality, marking vulnerable points.” ~ Ayn Rand




Important Guidelines

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, June 17th if you would like it to be posted on Thursday, June 18th. 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. The name of the theme you chose

4. Something you'd like to share (process of creation, idea behind piece) if you'd like to share anything

5. The shop and/or blog links you'd like to include

6. 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, get out your big, red crayon and color your world!
