Are you ready to start week 12? I wasn’t sure if I would be. My week has been so chaotic that I’ve nicknamed it “The Fast and Furious”. Somehow I managed to get in 7 journal entries. Did you?
Day 71 -- My plan is…
This prompt made me think about how my plans never seem to go the way I planned. To demonstrate, I made a not-so-simple flow chart.
Day 72 -- Best gift I ever gave
I got a little stumped on this one, and finally convinced myself to go a different direction with the prompt. Rather than focus on good gifts I have given, I chose to describe how I often don’t get the best gift.
Day 73 -- Anagram your name
I’m not very good at thinking outside the box when it comes to art, but that’s exactly what I wanted to do with this prompt. I know it’s not much of a stretch, but for me it was definitely something new and original. The letters are all “leftovers” that I’ve cut out over the years when making titles for my scrapbooks. I saved them in the hope I would find a use for them, so I’m glad I finally did. This was also one of the first few pages where I didn’t really worry about what the finished page would look like – I just did each step as it came to me.
Day 74 -- People say I look like
I get so many comments that I look like this person or that one. For that reason, I thought I would show ALL the people I look like (or so people say) rather than just one. I enjoyed doing this prompt, but I really hated hunting through all the photos looking for just the right ones.
Day 75 -- Two sides to every coin
To illustrate my quotes, I used my Sixx Big Shot and rubber embossing mat to emboss pennies over most If not all of the card.
Day 76 – Bully
The bully prompt made me think of an exercise we did with the Girl Scouts one year where we tore up a life-sized drawing of a person and then put it back together . The activity was meant to demonstrate that harmful words do damage to a person that can never be fixed.
Day 77 -- In 1 hour…
I couldn’t think of a darned thing I would do with just one hour, but I’m sure there are lots of people out there who do.
Welll, that’s it for this week. And here are next week’s prompts:
- If I died today, it would be because…
- Watch tv for a commercial and use that as your prompt
- My hero
- Define perfection
- I could teach…
- My own personal prison
- If I could change the world
Go do something creative today!
