I have been following this awesome group on Facebook, Journal 52. It is like many Art Journal groups, they give a prompt, and we run with it. A prompt a week for a year.
I only finished week 3 so far (they are on week 8) but I hope to jump into week 8 and keep up. Although we all know it won't last, or I will miss a bunch of weeks again. :(
But I'm not complaining!! I am sticking to my word for the year, SIMPLIFY, and if a prompt or page is not in my schedule for the week, I'm not worrying. I will keep plugging along, with less stress and demands on my self. So will I do week 8 this week? Not sure yet. There's always next week, right?
I challenged myself with this page. Not because of the prompt (which was "You Make Me Smile"), but because I only used paper and a few markers. Most of my pages include paints, inks, paper pieces, stamps, stencils.....
I made some designs and wrote the words, and doodled inside the words and added glitter markers. But no matter what I did, it felt unfinished. So, I outlined stuff and added more doodles and still, it felt unfinished. Finally, I gave in....I sprayed it with ink, and circled all the big drops I found.
I am very pleased with this page overall. It was a challenge for sure!
