#creativeUNblock no.7

julyheader

Here we are, more than half way through this 12 months of 12 projects {If you missed the first six projects, no problem, you can catch up right here.} July’s project takes us outside… thank goodness because my house is so hot right now! Yes, I’m quite excited to take this advice from Portland based artist Rachel Denny… ready?

“Go outside and take a walk. Listen and look at your surroundings. Find a natural object that you find interesting and take it home. Try to replicate the object in an unnatural way. Paint it realistically using text, sculpt it out of something in the kitchen (a potato, empty bags, etc), or use colors that are not part of the original object.

Use your imagination, and don’t be afraid of failure. You can’t do it wrong.” ~ Rachel Denny

Fun! If you’re in the Northern hemisphere put on a hat and some sunscreen and get out there… for friends in Australia and New Zealand, grab a sweater and go! If you’d like to share what you make, just put it up on Instagram or Twitter and hashtag it #creativeUNblock. And like Rachel says, don’t be afraid of failure… you can’t do it wrong.

    Ooh ooh, I like this one!! I missed the last two months as I got put off by the one where you had to travel a certain distance from home. Not having the best health to do that I felt all left out and sulky! (I should have just invented a modified version). But I like this one so I’m back on board!

    oh good – glad you’re excited for this one. here’s a modification idea for the outside one… roll the dice and instead of traveling away from home for that amount of minutes, start in your kitchen and take that many steps in one direction. see what you stop in front of in your house, and find a new starting point/inspiration from something that you look at every day! hm. i might even try that!
