Daily Creativity #0021

Lidor WyssockyDaily Creativity

Every day we play with a creative challenge. What we create doesn’t have to be grand. It doesn’t have to be perfect. We aim to stretch our creative muscles, be playful, and have fun!

Every day we take a little journey with some unexpected turns. That’s the beauty of creativity. If you just let it, it will fill you with wonder.

The Challenge

Our creative challenge today is made of the following set. If you are familiar with the creomondi building blocks, use the set to explore, imagine, and create. Alternatively, read how we played with it for inspiration first.

The Playground We Will Explore

The Seed We Will Use in our Exploration

And We Are Aiming to Create…

Let’s Play

Today, we start by exploring nature. Go out and find a piece of nature, even if it is in the middle of the city. The Seed we will use to drive our creative exploration is the Ghost Seed. Anything in nature you can associate or fuse with Ghost would be a great discovery, so record it — you will use it in the next step of the game.

When I went out on a short bike ride today, I found this bush with its pink leaves. The wind was playing with it, and from a distance, it seemed like a dancing ghost. I took a photo of it, and later at home, I tried to recreate the look of the movement with simple blur and blending.

This, of course, only one way to play. You could use your discovery merely as inspiration — use it as an idea — and create a whole new photograph from scratch in the creation step.

Now, It Is Your Turn…

Don’t follow my steps! Take the set of cards and play with them. Use them as a guide and not as a set of rules. Let your imagination lead the way. Don’t dismiss your ideas.

Have fun! Be creative!
