Artist's Play Room #86

**Please note that there will be NO APR throughout the month of December. I think we all need a break and everyone is usually rediculously busy with Christmas, family, baking and celebrating, not to mention SHOPPING, hehehe. So, no challenges for four weeks. The Artist's Play Room will return on Saturday January 4th, 2014. (Holy COW does it feel weird typing 2014!!)**

Now I return you to your regularly scheduled program already in progress, ;o)

Please scroll down for the newest Artist's Play Room Challenge and to enter your artwork throughout this upcoming week.

If you haven't read the rules & guidelines, please go here. If you've landed here after this challenge has been completed but would like to participate in a current or future Artist's Play Room Challenge, just either click on the APR button in the sidebar or click here and you'll be taken to the latest APR Challenge!

Are you having trouble using the Mr. Linky to add your submissions to APR? Well here's some help! Just click on HELP and you'll be taken to my Linky Help Page. Cool, huh? I've got your back!

So we need a new challenge theme don't we? My aunt suggested a great theme for this week. Let's draw, sketch or use charcoal to make art, K? I guess that means putting down your paints and getting out your pencils, hehehe. Draw/sketch whatever you want or for those of you who think you just can't draw then you'll have to think outside the box for this challenge, now I can't wait to see what you'll come up with. :o)

Ok, a few years ago I used to participate in a weekly challenge where we used Flickr to choose pictures that represented how we were feeling that week, it was amazing how this weekly assignment captured ME. I was thinking how much I had enjoyed particitating in that challenge so I thought we could do a "SELF PORTRAIT" theme this week. It can be about you or your art or how you're feeling or whatever you want. You can use a mosaic maker like I did several years ago (to the left, I was in the middle of an artist's block as I recall, lol) or paint up how you're feeling etc. However you want to capture YOU is ok with ME. lol. Have at it peoples, I can't wait to see what you come up with! (for those who want to use a mosaic maker I'd suggest doing the art you want to then uploading it to your flickr account then going here to make your mosaic.)

Do you know what complimentary colors are? You probably do, but let me explain for everyone since that's our theme for this week. Complimentary colors are colors that are opposite each other on the color wheel...
So this means that yellow and violet are complimentary colors, as are blue and orange, red and green, red-violet and yellow-green and so on. So, this week, choose your complimentary colors from the color wheel and go hog wild showing us just why they're so complimentary to each other. It'll be great, all those color combinations to choose from. This week's APR will be bursting with wonderful color!

So we need a new challenge theme don't we? I was thinking about all of you lucky people who are planning a winter getaway, away from the blah weather we have here in North America. As it gets colder I think we all dream of sunny skies, sweet drinks with umbrellas in them and warm sand between our toes. This got me thinking of the beauty of sea shells so why don't we do a theme with that? SEA SHELLS is our theme this week, you can be literal or think outside the box, whatever your artistic heart wants to do. I'll be dreaming of warm vistas as I watch your submissions roll in.

So we need a new challenge theme don't we? I thought this week we could explore the word  "LAUGH". There are so many ways to go about this challenge theme, what makes you laugh? What do you think of when others are laughing? How wonderfully happy do you feel in the middle of a good laugh? So, go about your week and when you laugh you can think about this challenge and just maybe a great creative idea will pop into your head when you least expect it.
