Creativity Boot Camp - Day 1

I signed up for Creativity Boot Camp a couple of weeks ago over on
Madeline has put together two weeks of daily prompts to encourage our creativity and think of ourselves more as artists than just hobbyists or crafters.

Day one included writing a letter to your future self about what you had gained from the bootcamp experience (I will be honest and say that I haven't done this excercise yet).
The word prompt of the day to release that creativity was "Ivory".
No problems here - my reaction was immediate! I have a photo in my craft room of the kids aged 6 and 2 sitting on top of an enormous bull elephant!

Madeline has asked people to choose an artistic medium to work in (which could be anything) and although I chose to first create a LO, I then switched to make an ATC. My "Ivory" theme also switched from elephants to bridal and I created an embossed, sequined and be-netted piece.

I've had a quick go at ATC's in the past couple of weeks - but this is my absolute favourite - so far!

I wonder what day two will bring?


  1. I love the elephant page.

  2. I did an elephant too! Great job!

  3. glad you are having a good time scrapbboking xxx
    I thought i was going to see the shoes decorated but nope ! Go on add some Bling lol

  4. hi thanks for visiting me. Good elephants I love your ivory choice. This is fun isn't it (I am no photographer but couldn't see how there would be time to paint or draw or sew these prompts) heavy metal I thought of rock bands first then my car! but there are so many things around the home.
