welcome to the archive of all the dares I have created for “REV IT UP”. a challenge I came up with during these uncertain, insecure and crazy corona times. we live in a strange world right now (april 2020). lot’s of countries are in lock down, lots of companies are struggling, lots of people have lost their jobs and lots of families have lost loved ones ?
to stay sane, I create as much as I can. creating means FREEDOM to me. my mind wanders off to a happy place, and I forget all the frightening stuff that is happening around us now. and since I would want to give you all the freedom of creating in flow, I came up with a weekly FREE dare, a challenge “REV IT UP”.
every 2 weeks I will post a challenge here. which you can only reach, if you are part of our community, a rev it up member so to speak! you will receive a lovely newsletter every week on Friday with a dare in it. I will show you what I have made. It will be a prompt and some sort of an assignment / idea for you to make.
my idea is to have fun with every assignment. to GIVE YOURSELF PERMISSION TO PLAY. to look forward to every week when the new idea for you to create comes popping up in your email. that way I hope to inspire you to break that blank page, escape a bit from reality, we can keep our little hands busy and our head full of creative energy.
Dare no. 1 “PLAY” April 24, 2020
We start this dare with one of the most meaningful and loving words there is for me: “PLAY”. My tagline is “Give yourself permission to play” and we are gonna do just that!
Dare no. 2 “BELIEVE” May 1st, 2020
The second dare is here, and another meaningful word for me ‘BELIEVE’, because it is so important to believe in YOU. Let’s go!
Dare no. 3 “LETTING GO” May 8, 2020
The third dare is here, and today we are going to LET IT GOOooooo 😀
Dare no. 4 “OFFLINE” May 15, 2020
Dare no. 4 is ready for you, and this dare is all about OFFLINE and do we need that, or what?
Dare no. 5 “FEELING” May 22, 2020
hello sweethearts! REV IT UP time! This week it is all about FEELING. And the first thought that came to my mind was “feeling alive”. And how important it is to do the things that makes you happy.
Dare no. 6 “FORGIVE” May 29, 2020
This week it is all about FORGIVE / FORGIVING. and that is seriously a tough topic for me. I can forgive others easily, but this time I wanted to jot down my thoughts about forgiving myself.
Dare no. 7 “CREATING” June 5, 2020
This week it is all about CREATING. and oh well I could talk ages about creating and how good for the soul creating is. For me it is an escape from real life.
Dare no. 8 “DREAM BIG” June 12, 2020
This week it is all about YOUR BIG DREAMS. And I loooove to dream big. I love to think up things I would LOVE to reach one day. It can be about our home, family and of course about my creatieve business.
Dare no. 9 “MOVE” June 19, 2020
This week it is all about MOVE. MOVING. and I thought it was perfect to make a lovely art journal page about me trying to MOVE my body every single day. by walking that is. I am not that big of a sport woman :O.
Dare no. 10 “CELEBRATE” June 26, 2020
This week it is all about CELEBRATE. First thing that came to mind was “celebrate the little things”. You might think that is easy and so cliche, but seriously if you think about it, you must feel some sort of gratitude for those little things.
Dare no. 11 “ADVENTURE” July 3, 2020
This week it is all about ADVENTURE. And I really need to adventure more! So Adventure Await is my title for this art journaling page. I did come up with any written journaling. Just the title is enough for me AND I did not want to put words on my gorgeous background :).
And now I am off eating cake because it is Sanne’s 17th birthday!
Dare no. 12 “READ” July 10, 2020
This week it is all about READ(ING). And it seems like, since I have kids, reading is such a luxury! Especially when they were young (teenagers now!) I barely had time to read….
Dare no. 13 “TAKE TIME” September 4th, 2020
This week it is all about TAKING TIME. And seriously, what a coincidence?! I premade a list with prompts at the beginning for the whole year. And after READ I decided to have a break. When I picked it up again, I saw the new prompt was TAKE TIME. haha! That can not be a coincidence, right?!
Dare no. 14 “DANCE” September 18th, 2020
This week it is all about DANCE. And I just have such a favorite song lately which is about DANCING. I loved working with my watercolors and tombow markers again. Curious? Go check it out!
