Hello everyone and where did July go? How is it already August?! Thank you for staying with me, I’m a little behind, but I’m excited to share this belated “Ohkayyay 5 Things” August Edition with you!

*As mentioned in the previous months, “Ohkayyay 5 things” is a loose and free monthly based prompt challenge with zero pressure! Just some things to get the gears turning if you need any inspiration, all based around a particular month. See July’s list here.

Here are the “5 things” for August: 

Sunflower: The sunflowers have started growing and turning their faces towards the sun and I am here for these beautiful flowers. When drawing sunflowers, think of the simple shapes you can use to create the bigger picture! Where are the sunflowers planted? Is it one sunflower being held, or a whole field of sunflowers layering over each other?  

Mushroom: We’ve had a lot of rain where I live, mix that with the warmer weather and out pop the mushrooms practically overnight! Here are some fun mushrooms I’ve seen around:

-Stinkhorn 

-Ghost Pipes

-Giant Puffball

-Bitter Bolete

-Hen of the Wood

And I’ve seen even more than this, so many mushrooms, so little time! Have you seen any cool mushrooms where you live?

Acorn: Another favorite of mine, acorns! Anyone else think these are super adorable? An acorn can be a great prop for a character in a piece, it can be a character itself, or it could even be a home for a character. What do you think of when you hear the word acorn?   

Home: What does home mean to you? Is it a person, place, or pet? It can go so many ways! I love painting buildings and homes, especially A-frames houses, and if you’re looking to try to paint or draw a house, here’s your sign!  

Harvest: It’s almost the end of summer and that means it’s time to harvest. Last year my family planted more in our garden than this year. We had squash, cucumber, tomato, and some pumpkins. This year we’ve been trying to clean out our beds and yard so we haven’t had much time for planting, but I’m excited to see what harvest means for you and would love to hear if you’ve planted anything and seen any successes! 

That’s it! The “5 things” for the month of August. Hope they help inspire you to create! 

Note: These prompts do not have to be finished pieces, they could be a sketch, a story, a sculpture, anything! If you feel like sharing, you can use #ohkayyay5things  and tag me on instagram @ohkayyay. I’ll be sharing creations in my stories throughout the month of June! If you don’t want to share over social media, you can email me at ohkayyay@gmail.com or you can keep your beautiful creations all for yourself. I can’t wait to see what you make! 

Thank you for reading, and have fun creating everyone! 

-Kay
