journal


**Sooo, I did absolutely nothing today. like, NOTHING. In fact, I didn't even get out of bed until like 2:00. That is so uncharacteristic of me but I wasn't feeling so well and reading in bed sounded really good.
Can you believe that I have managed to read 10 books in the last 3 weeks? Insanity.
**The sunglasses in the above picture are my temporary pair until I find my dream SATC pair for cheap. These were five dollars and have already fallen apart a bit but I still love them for right now :)
**This past week was the last week for the Tell Your Story art journaling class that I was taking :( This was definitely a great class, very fresh and inspirng :)
Here are my last few pages that I created for the class:
Enjoy!
The prompt for this one was to strictly use your pen only to describe the day, no other supplies:

The prompt for this next one was, Choices.

and finally, this page was all about Negative space...

Yay! loved the class and I am so happy that I will have the journal to commemorate this awesome time in my life.
**I am thinking about doing a 30 day journal challenge on my blog where I will share a prompt and page each day for 30 days.
Mine is going to be strictly pen and paper, like a doodle a day or something that goes along with the prompt. It will also focus a bit on typography as well :)
I did something like this once before and really loved it.
I would love for you all to follow along and do the prompts with me!!
Is this something that you all would be interested in??
If I here back from enough people who are interested, I will do it as a blog thing and not just a personal thing.
What do you think??

    I think your idea is a great one! I like the idea of it just being pen and paper! (Less to carry around)... Your journal pages are great to look at , thanks for sharing!

  25. i would really enjoy that! i have all these blank journals laying around and all these thoughts blowing around in my head, it would be great to have some direction in what to do with them. and it would be fun to be a part of something big, knowing all these different people are similarly thinking and expressing themselves.

    Sounds like so much fun!
