This day is yours ~ your theme today is red
Travel with me as we go on a road trip to Café Creative.
It’s raining and there are a couple of car loads of people travelling in convoy to destinations as yet unknown. The Uber drivers know these roads and as we pile into each car, the passengers introduce each other.
It starts to rain quite heavily and the noise of the rain drowns out further conversation. After awhile we can see the brake lights of the lead driver as the car slows and comes to a stop in a small town seemingly in the middle of nowhere.
We are outside a non descript brick building which looks like an old factory. There are tall windows set in metal framework and the inside is aglow with low hanging industrial type chandeliers suspended by chains. We all stow our umbrellas in a tin outside the door and walk into a soft lit café.
Someone sneezes and you realise you are a bit chilly from the rain. You spy the red glow of a fire and head towards it and the others all do the same. It is cosy inside with the rain still pelting down on the roof above. You sit down and watch the the flames dancing, the wood crackling as it catches alight.
The tables are full of people chatting and drinking. A waiter takes your order and you listen to the companionable sound of people laughing and talking.
You are at the Café Creative, a place to activate your creativity.
You sip your drink, bring out your paper, pens and glue-stick and start to transform this moment into a travel memory.
The theme colour is red – make a red palette, use the sounds of the fire, the glowing red embers, the red bricks of the café and the rain as stimulants.
You have just over five minutes before the Uber drivers have downed their drinks and want to be off, so….
Get inspired, use what you have and finish.
