Spooky Autumn walk #weatherornot #64millionartists Weather or Not #64Millionartists weekly challenge by #clevercrafter A cold and frosty morning in Wednesbury but I did a little photography #photography #Wednesburyonline #art #instapic #PhotoScape #WeatherOrNot #64millionartists #creativechallenge #azillionideas The Weekly Challenge, 28th October 2019 - Weather or Not ** Full challenge here : http://dothinkshare.com/the-weekly-challenge/the-weekly-challenge-28th-october-2019-weather-or-not/ * * “The remnants of summer warmth battle it out with the lurking beginnings of winter – and, where the two mix, the weather turns pretty lively.” Liam Dutton Autumn is here and has brought with it a fresh colour pallette of reds, oranges, greens and golds all around us. We’re not sure whether to wear shorts or thermals, raincoats or flip flops, and we have left our umbrellas at home too many times. This week’s challenge is set by crafter @Angie Safford, who has been inspired by the weather to get outside, and creative. Capture the weather today. What can you see outside your window? What do you feel when you step outside? You could draw, paint, photograph, collage, use leaves, conkers, squelchy mud - what is the weather like in your corner of the world? Is there a tiny cloud, bright sunshine, a strange tornado? Get creative, it’s over to you! As always, share using #64MillionArtists #WeatherOrNot. Have fun, and get creative! In full bloom while all around it is withered & brown. We all flourish, thrive, bloom at different moments, in different conditions, in our own ways & times. What conditions help you thrive? . .

In celebration, this week’s challenge is set by artist Rhiannon Armstrong, whose ‘Slow GIF movement’ seeks to make flashing, jolting and repetitive online spaces more accessible to neurodiverse audiences with calming, gently looping GIFs (short loops of moving images). What if our GIF culture had an access and wellbeing agenda? What if we created a Slow GIF Movement, what would that be like?

The Poetry Metronome series (find them online by searching Rhiannon Armstrong!) are made from discarded documents and animated into metronomes at 60bpm or less (the average heart rate). And now - it’s over to you, to slow down, and join in. Create your own 'Poem Made from Words Found In The Bin'. Find a shred of paper with text on it - either from a shredder, or by cutting a newspaper, magazine or book - and use the letters you can see to create words around your shred. Let your letters lead to words and your words lead to phrases - can you create poetry from shreds of discarded paper? Your poem might celebrate World Mental Health Day, might be a love poem, funny poem, short poem, long poem - it's up to you. Can you use GIPHY to turn your poem into a metronome Gif?
