December Countdown Challenge

Happy weekend everyone!

Can you believe how fast a year can pass? I just got used to writing 2019!

Let’s countdown to the end of the year with a December Challenge!

Pattern-collections is embracing all cultures. Some of us are in the middle of winter, whereas others enjoy summer right now. We all have different backgrounds and religious beliefs. And because we are open-minded, the various cultures have to be taken into consideration when creating a prompt list. The only small issue I encountered is the fact that the old year ends in December in this countdown, whereas in the Chinese culture the New Year begins on January, 25.

Many of us are pretty busy during this time of year. All the more reason to take half an hour each day to relax. You might sit in front of an empty page, not knowing where to start. Well, that’s why I created this prompt list for you. This time it not only contains a daily pattern! I include additional prompts and challenges to keep you engaged and spark your imagination. Feel free to only use the daily pattern focus and ignore the prompts. And if you can’t draw every day, maybe create a collage by including multiple daily patterns in your artwork?

Anyway, it’s all about taking the time to unwind.

  • Smile – produce the happiness chemicals before you get started
  • Breathe – reduce your heartrate
  • Draw – enter the zone and experience flow

Hugs,
Ina
