Monday's Muse - Feeling challenged?

Still struggling with the time management thing, but I've missed participating in Monday's Muse lately. Getting those haven't created anything new grouchies the last couple of days too....harumph...

I've been inspired by a lot of online Art Challenges recently. These are just for fun, not profit or prizes. Come play along if you have the time!

Here is a great picture posted for last Wednesday's Art on the Darkside ChallengeJust click on pic to visit the site for more info & to view past submissions

Another Wednesday challenge is from a wonderful new group I've joined, the Melange Team. It is a collection of talented mixed media artists who sell their work on etsy. The "Mixing it up with Melange" Weekly Word Challenge starts in 2 days. It is open to anyone who feels inspired. This week's prompt is Ticket. Post your finished piece to your blog. Then add a link in the comment section. For more details about Melange & the Challenge click here.

Still fiddling with last Illustration Friday's provocative prompt, Impossibility. It immediately brought to mind half a dozen ideas. Now, I just need to learn how to function without sleep...hmmmm.... Hoping to flesh out something soon. To see a variety of creative responses click here. If you get the time, play along & submit your own interpretation.

There are many many more fabulous websites to jump start your creativity. These are just a few I'm thinking about this week. What are some of your favorite places to get new ideas?

If you're looking for a bit of inspiration, check out Maternal Spark, home of Monday's Muse. It is always fun to see what everyone there is thinking about this week

Oh, before I forget, be sure to comment here before Thursday at noon (EST) to be entered in ArtSnark's latest random giveaway. See my last post for details


  1. Does the challenge piece have to be finished by this Wednesday? I went to the blog but I'm kind of unclear.

  2. I've been wanting to do some challenges like this, but I don't have much time this week. Thanks for posting these; I'll have to come back and click through one day soon.

  3. Don't you just hate when life gets in the way of creating. I have the best of intentions to participate in challenges, but have such a hard time getting them done.

  4. Thanks for all the challenge info...I'm heading over to be inspired...and I like the unusual darkside challenge pic...
