Creative Prompt of the Week: Talk Two-Headed Giraffe

I met a two-headed giraffe today.

He was buried in a rummage sale. Must have gotten lost somewhere along the way, most likely because he was missing two ears. As boss of the Idea Emporium Mall, I am in charge of hiring. This guy seriously needs a job. So, help me out. What department should I hire him for? What tasks should he be in charge of? Keep in mind, most giraffes are pretty tall so that is an asset I can use in the mall.

Creative Prompt Thursday

wildwavytrees

It’s a lesson in Wild Wavy Trees in the Invention Room.

Let’s play with Expressive Line.

The Idea Emporium Nursery just got in a batch of Wavy Trees. Wavy Trees have personality! Line can be expressive. If you draw the lines growing up and out, the tree looks scary. If you draw the lines full and up, the tree looks whimsical and silly. It’s fun to explore with lines.

Lines can show a feeling by how we draw them. Let’s play.

Grab some paper. Tag them #ideaemporium on social media to share.
