Build your Scene


Forget the prop cupboard, every cupboard in your house is styling fodder in this week’s challenge. Sculpt, collect and arrange everyday items you have on hand to illustrate a page from your visual story. You could create a landscape out of linens or project your vision onto a wall. Every surface you encounter is a blank canvas for you to set the scene and let your imagination set sail!

Ways to challenge yourself this week:

  • Create a landscape out of linens

  • Use items of clothing or found objects to shape an animal or character

  • Use cardboard or paper cutouts to create a scene or character

  • Transform a blank wall into a mural or landscape

  • Draw onto your photograph to add new detail and context

How to participate

During the week of August 19-25, 2019 create a new image inspired by the weekly theme and share it on Instagram tagging @creativelysquared and #cs_buildyourscene.

Meet your Mentor: Danielle Dean

Someone who is a pro at turning linen into sofas and cardboard boxes into almost anything is our mentor this week, Danielle Dean from @sienna.and.i. I have literally followed Danielle from the onset. I have watched her creativity grow and blossom, as well as her daughter Sienna. Her magical and creative scenes invite us into her imagination and Sienna’s dreams, the little princess of napping. Danielle is so generous with her time and tips too so we are in for a real treat this week…click here to read her interview and delve into Danielle and Sienna’s world.
