Prompt 1

So, I finished this prompt today and completed my page because I wanted to be ahead of the game for tomorrow.
Little did I know, I would be going crazy wanting to post it for all of you!!
I'm giving in to my lack of self-control and am posting Prompt 1 NOW!!
Oh my goodness, I am soooo excited!!!
like, so excited to get started :)
The response from you all for this challenge was RIDICULOUS (in a great way of course).
I actually started to get a bit nervous.
Then, I realized that I am going to rock this challenge.
and so are YOU!
Ok, so as I stated before, I will try my very hardest to have these journal prompts posted by 10:00 am CST or earlier, every morning.
I have water walking at the pool at 10:30 each morning and I like to do my journaling first thing in the morning so I feel motivated to be creative for the rest of the day :)
Here it is Prompt number one!!

Journal Prompt Number 1: Create a full page design introducing yourself :)
Highlight your name many times in the midst of your design.
I chose to use a lot of line design because I love it so much lately.
I also chose to draw some of the things that I like as well in there!!
Have fun, be creative, don't stress, just jump right in!!

My page:

The point, for me, was to cover every possible white space with pen.
Don't forget to upload your journal page in the Flickr group and to post it on your blog as well!

I am so excited and I hope you are feeling really inspired to challenge yourself for the next 30 days :)
Don't forget to pick up your Journal Challenge stickers, HERE!!!!

See you Tuesday Morning!

  22. Hi, is it too late for me to join all of you!? I would love to! It looks like so much fun. I am not an exceptionally crafty person, however, I think this could bring some of it out of me. :-) I'm following!

    Oh - I'm scared to draw!!!!
    :D Will try my hardest!!

  24. I made my page and I love it! I never would have thought of this because it seems so obvious- of course my journal is about me. But I love it! Thanks so much :)

  25. Cant wait to do this :) I just found out about it yesterday, so i have to catch up and go get a journal...then wait till my baby girl is asleep, then get creative! :) whoo hooo! thanks for hosting this challenge Janel :)

  26. I have been so excited to do this! We have just moved into a new place and I'm still trying to set up my craft 'studio' - which is really a corner in a room :) I'm going to try to journal to my full potential with only part of my working space! lol.

    Question: I bought a 3 pack of moleskine journals and the pages seem rather thin.....does the ink seem to show through the back of the page you draw on? And do you just not use that back page and skip on to the next one for the next prompt? I figured that would be the best way to go about that. Any suggestions would be appreciated :)

    Thank you SO MUCH for doing this!! I'm so glad to be a part of this!



  27. I did my page!
    It was fun, although I didn't really draw as I'm really bad at it :D

  28. heres mine:

  29. just finished my page! it was 12:30 my time so technically late but this was the first chance I had gotten and I didn't want to miss the first day! I loved your page, it was very inspiring! :)
