The 100 Themes ChallengeThe 100 Themes ChallengeMore Like This
We know there a few clubs out there now supporting this challenge.
However, many of those clubs are inactive or having troubles. So, we decided to create an 100 themes challenge club that supports the original list AND 4 other variations meaning we should have something for everybody.
For those who don't know, allow me to explain.
The 100 Themes Challenge is a project where you are given a list of 100 words/themes to create pieces on up untill you complete the whole list. And there is no time limit! Its a good job because this can take ages to complete. Not a very good challenge for the impatient I must admit. And you can complete this challenge in whatever medium you want. That includes poetry and prose. You don't have to stick to one medium throughout. You use whatever you like and you don't have to do the list in order either!
And, if you had fun completing it the first time, you can go try another variation and try another list all over again!

Who doesn't like experimenting with media? I admit that I didn't expect it to be so fun until I actually sat down to it. Below you'll find a list of some weird things I did to a bunch of innocent watercolour rectangles.
Salt and sugar
Salt is nothing new for people who's been dealing with watercolour for some time. Depending on the amount of water, pigment, and salt - as well as the grain size - you can acquire a whole variety of textures. They all have the same thing in common - they push the pigment out, and leave brighter spots. I have a separate article on salt textures here.
The green bit was treated with the common kitchen salt, small grains. The pink one was hit with coarse bathing salt - as you might have guessed, it was blue. Contrary to what you might expect, thicker grains won't get you bigger "anti-stains".
