black & white plus 1 color
steampunk
circus
moon
sci-fi
attitude
vintage 40's
vintage 70's
romance

Also, I like the idea for one medium a month but not for the whole year, example; February-romantic collage, March-Spring gelli print, July-postage stamp famous person extend the scene, November-pen & ink sci-fi.
Please no more cats and dogs (although I know you love dogs and many love cats)--ok, never mind!

* Illustrate a scene from one of Aesop's fables
* Illuminated letter(s)
* Elements - wind, water, earth, fire; one or all mixed
* The view out my window(s)

* Hardship and hope
* Impermanence
* Something for which I am grateful
* Double exposure - a silhouette of one image with another drawn within (ie. Human head profile with a close-up flower within.)

* Use this shape - provide a simple abstract shape that creators then use to make a scene.
* Story in three scenes - tell a story where one scene is depicted on each card. Cards should be joined together (string, tape hinges...)

Theme Suggestions

At the beach
Camping themes
books- either pictures of books or your favorite books
baby theme-could be cutsie or retro or whatever
weather-rainy, tornadoes, etc
strong women-from rosie the riveter to your grandma or mom
extreme closeups

These are just a few of my ideas that seem inspiring. Plus all the other suggestions that were truly amazing!

Thanks,
EML

What about one theme a month, but two different mediums--collage/mixed media and hand-drawn/hand-painted--two winners, one for each medium? The best of both worlds!

Theme ideas:

based on a classic novel
based on a classic poem
