Hello to you!
September seems to have whizzed by very fast, and I can hardly believe that it's the 1st of October already! I imagined that when I wrote up this gallery page about our Autumn theme, I would be looking out my window at stormy grey skies, and frisky breezes whipping up carpets of fallen leaves into spirals of colour. But today, as I write this the temperature is creeping up towards the 80's, the sky is pure azure blue and there is a magnificent yellow sun cracking the pavements. Butterflies are wafting about the garden lazily, and we are wearing our t-shirts and coolest clothes. Autumnal it is absolutely not but there we go, that's the Great British weather for you!
I decided I would add my most recent painting to the Flickr Group this month. After all, it was painted with this time of year in mind and represented a coastal Autumn to me. I've also noticed some new offerings in the group pool which I haven't had a chance to comment on yet (but I'll make time to visit and have a good old nosey as soon as I get the chance) and there looks to be some really interesting offerings this month.
I continually love how creativity is expressed in so many different ways - the members of the group who share their work surprise me each month with the variety and ingenuity of their creations.
So!! The theme for September was Autumn.
For those of you who would like to share your work via your blog/Flickr or other photo hosting webpage, you are very welcome to add your link to the widget at the bottom of this post (please just link to the page your work features on). Don't forget to use the whole caboodle of http://www...etc or else the link won't work.
Anyone who has already posted in the Flickr Group are also encouraged to share your images in the gallery here too. Please don't be shy about sharing...encouragement and support is the key to growing in confidence with your creativity, and although it can feel a little scary, I think you will feel a huge sense of achievement when you share your work and get feedback from the other participants or blog readers here.
You will be able to add your 'Autumn' themed work to the gallery here until the end of October. There is also a list in the sidebar so that the gallery pages are easier for you to find.
For those of you who are working on the project and don't have the facility to share pictures of your work, then you are welcome to add your thoughts about your creative journey so far in the comments section at the bottom of this post.
I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts on taking part in the Being Creative Project, so please do share or feel free to email me privately.
The theme for October is: Fire
You can post your work freely in the Flickr group as and when you like; don't forget to make use of the Discussion facility if you have any questions, or require some support :)
I'm really looking forward to seeing what you've done this month - thank you so much for aking the time to share your colourful and glorious creations!

(edited: oops, seems I got ahead of myself on the calendar! We're in October, not November as I previously wrote, but the theme is still Fire - apologies for the confusion) x
