Just nod if you can hear me!
Welcome to another week of Chronicles! I’m finally starting to find my groove with this thing. HAHAHA I wish that were true! Really I keep doing the same thing week after week, forgetting about it until Sunday night and then frantically filling it in. BUT NO MORE. Sheesh. I would pinky-swear that I’ll actually do this daily like I’m supposed to, but I hate to break a pinky swear. I will really try to do it daily. I keep pondering doing a weekly compilation video to help motivate me – the 50 Canvases videos really do keep me motivated! I’m still trying to adjust to this new schedule that started four months ago. I’m a slow learner apparently.
- Draw a dream.
- Draw something you’re afraid of and make it absurd.
- Draw a word – for the most interesting words, check out The Daily Vocabula
- Try to copy a painting from the 1800s or emulate one of your favorite artists (be sure to credit the original artist!).
- Optional: Journal52 prompt – Rain or Shine
- Write one short-term goal.
- Write a brief message to your 10-year-old self or to yourself 10 years from now.
- Find some found poetry.
- Take an artsy picture (i.e., something purposely emotionally evocative)
- Take a picture of graffiti
- Take a picture that represents the time of year/holiday/day of the week/etc.
- Optional: Captureyour365 prompt for any day or every day this week
- If there’s an art supply you’re intimidated by, force yourself to use it.
- Try to find a new way to use something.
- Paste in receipts/ticket stubs/other miscellaneous mementos of an important event
Here are my pages from last week’s prompts!
Here’s what my week looks like all together!
This is a destash prompt. I have been holding onto these pastels for years. I have only used them either brushed over a stencil in the background of a piece of art or used them like watercolor. So I used them in a new (for me) way and also used something that I bought at least five years ago. Woo! It was actually a lot of fun, weird and loose and messy.
Also, we have been watching a lot of Frozen, and Fixer-Upper is the best song in the movie. Even though I misquoted, I guess it could be construed as a quote I love.
This is the other big page – I blind-drew the face and then added the text when my kids started their usual antics of everyone talking at once. I wrote the three things I accomplished this week on his shirt.
That’s it! I hope you’ll link up your pages, and I’ll see you next week!
