The Creative Initiative

When Lena from This Lovely Little Day first ran this idea of a sketching group by me I was very excited! I used to sketch and paint all the time, but these days I can't seem to ever find the inspiration - call it "artistic writer's block" - or time to actually sit down and do it. I've always had a passion for art (hence the blog I created) ever since I was very young, so it burdens me to have it sitting on the back burner in my life. Lena's brilliant idea to have us post a prompt each week for a new piece of art is just the motivation I needed to channel the creativity that I seemed to have pushed aside. So I invite you all to join me in this creative endeavor! 

This week's prompt is The Creative Initiative.
We created "sketches" based on the project as a whole and are introducing the theme for next week! You can feel free to submit a creative initiative sketch (using whatever medium you want) this week on this link--up post, and then you will have the opportunity to link-up on our new theme ("What did you do today?") next Thursday!

If you tweet or instagram about your post be sure to use the #thecreativeinitiative hashtag! 

The Creative Initiative rules:

1. Create something in your sketchbook based on this weeks prompt.
2. Post about your artistic endeavor on your blog and link-it-up to this post.
3. Comment on other bloggers posts! The prompts leave a lot of room to use your imagination and we should all support and encourage each other and we explore!

So there it is! I can't wait to see what you come up with!!


  1. Your sketch it beautiful girl! I love that we are doing this together! You are so talented!
