Creative Challenge – Creative Costa inspired


Would you like to join me on a monthly creative challenge to explore creativity and be inspired by the Costa del Sol?

I have been SO INCREDIBLY inspired by so much since I moved to Spain in 2013, that I would really love to create more using the beauty and inspiration we have here on the Costa del Sol. My goodness there is so much!

So here is my invitation to you, to come and join me for “Creative Costa Inspired”

I am also itching to build up a new body of artwork that has a particular meaning, a connection – to where I live now and thought what a perfect way to do so AND live my word of the year to connect with others. I really hope the “Creative Costa Inspired” group will inspire us all.

Would you like to join me?


Who can join in?

The challenge is open to everyone, whether you are a complete beginner right through to a professional artist. You can be at any level and located anywhere in the world.

How it works

On the 1st of every month, I will post a new theme inspired by an image on the Costa del Sol. We start 1 May, 2014.

I will challenge myself to explore this theme through colour, different materials and invite you to join in! I will then post throughout the month on progress, inspiration and invite you to do the same.

This will really stretch us and encourage us to explore, create and be inspired. You may discover a new medium or material you would like to try, some inspiration for a current or new creative project or simply just want to be inspired and get to know other creatives in the group.

Then throughout the month, I will post my creations on our facebook group here and encourage you to post anything you are working on or being inspired by based on the theme. If by the end of the month, we have a lovely selection of creations from the group, I will showcase them on the Creative Costa blog, on a wrap up post here on and on my facebook pages.

If you are not on facebook, you can still join in! Just email me your artwork and I will include it in the wrap up gallery posts at the end of each month.


Some ideas……

  • Paint the colours from the theme (I will include a gorgeous colour palette you can work with)
  • Collage the shapes
  • Sketch the patterns or lines
  • Photograph your own versions of the theme
  • Bake or cook something inspired by the theme
  • Sew, knit or crochet
  • Sculpt
  • Write a poem
  • Write a short story
  • Compose a song
  • So many possibilities!

Maybe you have a process you would like to share or a tip on using a particular material that we can all try out, or maybe you are a little nervous about creating and we as a group can help build your confidence and encourage you to share your new work in our safe supportive community.

You can join in anytime, the only rule is that you create and share your work or inspiration that is based on the current monthly theme, one that we have covered already or something creative that can help the group.
