It’s This Month! Halloween Prompts Idea Emporium Challenge

comingsoonhalloweenmeme

I’m so excited!

Join me in this experiment to play, created in my Invention Room in my Idea Emporium.

A few facts:

  1. Do I have to post every day? You can post once, a bunch, or all 31 days. Post on Instagram or Facebook, or Pinterest or whatever. Tag it: #ideaemporiumhalloween so we can bounce around the net and see your creations. The challenge is in that you play at all, not on how many days you participate! (I totally tanked the last 100 Day Project challenge).
  2. I can’t draw! Well, then post a poem, a sonnet, a funny line, a photograph, a doodle, a sewing project, a song, part of your novel, basically, a creation. Get out there and be your creative self. Each number on the list of prompts is a day in October. That creative prompt is your muse! Such as, 4, is October 4th, which is Magical Mushroom is the prompt.
  3. What is the Idea Emporium? It’s my imaginary mall, of course. A place where the imagination can play safely. It’s filled with lessons and inspiration, and magical crows. Look around and see what’s here to get a sense of the themes. (It’s also a book in the making). Be sure to sign up for the newsletter!
  4. Can my kids play? Of course. The challenge is for folks of all ages.
  5. Any other rules? Play nice with each other. Only post original creations that are yours. No cheating. No running with scissors. No trolling. And no spamming or catfishing each other.
  6. Why are you doing this? I’m going to Graduate School for Education/Instructional Design, and it’s been busy, busy, and I didn’t want to lose touch with my drawing. I also crave real creative connections and friends on Social Media, and wanted to get everyone together for one creative party.
  7. So let’s have fun! It’s an experiment so we might have three people, we might have hundreds. We don’t know. Hopefully, everyone’s creative juices will be overflowing from this experiment and you will pick up the pen, the paper or the sewing needle again! I will be sharing my posts on Instagram, FB, and Pinterest, and right here and they will be doodles and drawings.

Here’s the prompts:

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.
