Hey there!

Welcome to the first day of the Back2Basics challenge!

Week one is all about colors!!! Ever have that terrible feeling when you have one color and can’t figure out what to do with it? Well, I have been there too. Throughout the week I’m going to give you daily tips to get you through these hurdles.

We’ll be looking at reds, oranges, yellows, greens, blues, purples and pinks throughout the week.

As far as supplies go I’ll be sticking to the products I’ve gotten in my Artsnacks boxes within the past 3 years. But here are the general supplies you’ll need for the week.

•Any pencil

•Any Black pens

•Any supplies within the designated color.

For example:

Colored pencil, watercolor, acrylics, oils,etc.

•And any sketchbook and some good heavy weight paper

 The idea is to use something you’re comfortable with. It’s enough of a challenge dealing with just one color as it is.

The prompt today is Reds!

Today’s tip is to write down your ideas. Just like when you’re getting ready to write a paper you need to Brainstorm . Warming up by writing these ideas down is a good way to start the process of creating.

The whole point of these challenges in the upcoming weeks is to give y’all a boost of inspiration and incentives to create! Don’t stress about it. Let loose and have fun 🙂

Happy creating!
