Here are links to creative challenges and resources. I will add to them as and when I find suitable material. If anyone else knows of something that would fit in here please let me know.
www.illustrationfriday.com – illustrate the theme provided in any form of media
Other ways to challenge yourself:the 7 day magazine collage challenge (started in the Cloth Paper Studio Yahoo group):make a collage on 7 consecutive days or as many as you like on as many days as you like. The only “rules” are that you should only take images from one magazine (ones on home decor or high fashion magazines are a good source), and use scissors or glue. They can be whatever size you like.
