I am happy to report that the hives are gone, but now I’m all squigged out over talking about ticks. WILL THE ITCHINESS EVER END?!!!
Eh. Probably. ON WITH THE SHOW!
Here are your prompts for this week! If you’re confused over the process or the method behind the madness, read this and that.
- Use a stencil.
- Look up “art techniques” on pinterest and try one
- Do a blind drawing (where you draw something with your eyes closed) or a contour drawing (when you draw something by looking at an object and following its contours without looking at the paper).
- Carve a stamp and use it to make something.
- Optional Journal52 Prompt: Book Inspiration
- Write one short-term goal.
- What song do you love this week?
- Write down your favorite poem or a quote you love.
- Experiment with light
- Take a picture of someone doing something awesome.
- If you’re a foodie, take a restaurant-menu-quality picture of a meal you’re proud of or a fancy thing you ate. If you’re not a foodie, take a picture of your favorite food/condiment/potato chip bag/starbucks cup.
- Optional: Captureyour365 prompt for any day or every day this week.
- Use something you’re hoarding.
- Grab scraps, castoffs, or other various pieces of stuff on your table and incorporate them.
- If you painted, sculpted, or otherwise created something you really love, take a picture and paste it in, especially if you gave it away or sold it!
- If you tried a new recipe and loved it, paste it in. If you tried a new recipe and hated it, do the same. You will look back and laugh, especially if you take a picture of the disaster (or better yet, your kid’s face as they taste the abomination)
- Paste in a newspaper headline
And here are my pages from last week’s prompts! Finally! It feels like 20 years since I’ve worked in my book.
This was made for the collage prompt. I am still terrible at collage. hahaha! But it amused me greatly!
This is a random scraptastic page – A cutiepants baby cyclops that Phil gave me when we met in person (we have been Facebook friends forever), a timely warning from the gas company, and a bit of the program from the most surreal middle school choir concert ever.
On the back of that page is just a cute little heart that my daughter gave me on Mother’s Day. Awwww.
My usual “pile of chaos” page… Some tissue paper that Karen sent me along with some mushroom doodles in her honor… A picture for the “capture an adjective” prompt (HOT!)… a list of the books I read this week. One of the destash prompts was to find a new way to use something. I tried colored pencil on deli paper – it worked really well! The only issue was the thinness, so I doubled it up, glued the layers with gel medium, and then cut it out and pasted it in. I gave her comic book hair just for fun.
All right, I showed you mine, you show me yours!
