    The Official Guide to Daisy Yellow Creative Prompts

    "Our time is so short
    and the future so terrifyingly long.
    Through the art of brush, pen, and lens...
    we possess a swift and sure means
    of touching the conscience
    and clearing the vision."
    Ansel Adams

    I believe that spending time on creative stuff is one of the keys to happiness. Most of my creative time is spent on art journaling, drawing mandalas, doodling & photography. You might be doing embroidery, watercolor, acting, sculpting, cooking, collage, writing, creating crossword puzzles, gardening, nature journaling, quilting... or developing the perfect latte. It all swirls around the creative process.

    At Daisy Yellow you can find you'll find a massive amount of challenges to keep you busy the entire year. Creative prompts are part of the fun here, but they get scattered about by the wind.

    A guide to the creative prompts scattered across Daisy Yellow...

    ♥ Get started in Art Journaling with Art Journaling 101.

    ♥ Incite creativity with The Unofficial Guide to Creative Prompts | Challenges | Inspiration!

    ♥ Curious things happen in the background of your brain while you are doing challenges... I come up with creative ideas while doing something else (see Clarifying Ideas). You might discover a color palette for a project or page, get through a case of writers block, come up with a setting for a scene or develop the look & feel of a piece of art.

    ♥ The more techniques/tools you try and the more you experiment outside your creative box, the more self-confident you'll feel! It's brain exercise.

    Thanks so much for this post - led me back to your Kick Start your Journal entries. I am really loving those as I am trying to expand my range in my visual journals. Not sure how I found you but sure glad I did. I really enjoy your blog!

    Unfortunately I do not have time to "hop" through all of these right now, but can't wait till I do!!! Your blog is such a deep source of inspiration!

    Kimber, I look forward to hearing about your experience with the kick-start prompts! If you create something from a prompt, let me know!

    Tiffani, I see the prompts as something to come back to when you need to try something new, a creative spark, etc.... perfect for summer!

    Hi Tammy.....I can't thank you enough for your inspiration. I found your blog this past spring and have been doing the ICAD and the museum workshop. I have been doing something creative every day for about 3 months now and it has really helped me get through a bit of a stressful summer ( caring for an aging parent). All my life I've felt like I was an artist that couldn't get out. I've taken zillions of drawing and painting classes but always dropped out because I didn't progress at the rate that the class was going... I couldn't get it right. Following your blog and prompts and challenges, I have learned that the only "right" way to do art is my way and that's the right way for me. Over the past several months I've been able to share my art with the Flickr group (which is a big deal for me) and friends and I really like what I'm creating. Thank you so much for helping me find my creative voice!
    The internet is a wonderful thing.

    Lee, Your comment just shot me into the most wonderful of moods! I am so, so happy that you have found your voice, a way to create in your own unique way. If the Daisy Yellow prompts and challenges have contributed, I am thrilled beyond words. So thank you for the BIG smile today. I'm going to read this to my kiddos.

    I can't wait to get lost in your prompts! I started with a post card a day and have just been feeling so inspired:)
