For those of you who may be joining us just now, this Creative Challenge was inspired by a recent post by Petapixels re Creativity, and we thought we would put out a slightly revised version for the Beloved members – just for the fun of it!

Summer can be SO, SO, SO busy for most of us that we need to make sure that we have a play break now and again :)

Mostly, we just love to PLAY and this is another excuse to do so. Plus, PLAY is the best way to get those creativity juices flowing, imho ;)

If you’re up for it, we’d love for you to not only post your imagery, but share with us about your exploration, what opened up for you, what you saw differently, what it felt like and what discoveries have come about because of your “playing around”.

[Note: post one image/collage once a day on the FB group page and/or your own page. If the weekly challenge requires multiple pictures (more than there are days in the week), then please select the images that most reflect “play break” (which is our theme) and also consider what has most inspired creativity for you. And remember to use the #playbreak hashtag so we can find you :)]

As a special incentive, there will be weekly giveaways based on uniqueness and playfulness of the imagery, plus sharing of your ideas/thoughts/discoveries. [Please note: The Beloved Team will be able to participate, but not be eligible for the prizes :( ]

WEEK 2: Sometimes we miss out on the small things of life thinking that it’s the bigger things that count. For this week’s challenge, take 10 unique and/or abstract photographs of 1 small subject, and make this “subject” something that has meaning to you, something beloved in some way.  The smaller the subject, the more challenging this can be.  A “small subject” should not be “New York City.”
