My Art Journal suffered during the holidays. I was so far behind but as soon as I finished sewing and painting for Christmas I got right back into my journal. There was a benefit to the procrastination.... I had lots of time to think about the prompts. A few of the pages I love and a couple I don't.
I follow the blog: A Year In The Life Of An Art Journal. This blog provides art journal suggestions twice a month. Each suggestion will have The Prompt, The Stuff, and The Technique. Sometimes I use all three and other times I only use one. It just depends on what inspires me. This time around my favorite was the prompt on Christmas Traditions. I really liked how the page came out. I think we look like we belong in that bird's nest. My least favorite was the Thank You prompt. I didn't feel like there was room to be creative. I just did it to get it finished. I even thought about not even posting it but I like the reasons why I am thankful each and every single day.
