A to Z April Challenge - C

Today is  C - at the A to Z April Challenge.
 Still time to join in the fun!

C is for create

(in the background are zens - another fun challenge)

For me, art has become a necessary way for me to express my creativity. Using challenges of many kinds I have worked on tags, ATCs, in journals with painting, gelli printing, watercolkour , to name just a few of the mediums I have tried and enjoy.

Picasso is one of my favourite artists and his idea of art (and of course, his art) was extraordinary. One of my favourite quotes of his is:

Every child is an artist. 
The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.

*Each of is creative - we just have to find the medium, technique, outlet to express that creativity.

Here are a few links to garner more information on creativity:

TED Talks about creativity

37 Books every Creative person needs to read

40 Books to unlock your creativity

Two tags I made for C (create):

But there are so many quotes that I had to share a few more:

Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes, and having fun.
 — Mary Lou Cook

Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.”
George Bernard Shaw

I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.
Mother Teresa

Curiosity about life in all of its aspects, I think, is still the secret of great creative people.
– Leo Burnett
Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, the just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while.
 – Steve Jobs

Creativity is a drug I cannot live without – Cecil B. DeMille

Creativity is contagious, pass it on – Albert Einstein
