“By the Numbers” Art Journaling Challenge
Hostess: Beckie Holso
Kickoff Date: February 1st, 2015
All skill levels: Even if you are a novice at art journaling, please consider joining this challenge and trying some new things.
Since our previous journal challenges were so popular, we decided it was time to host a new one. This year, we will be doing a Number Prompt over a 10-month period using, the numbers 1-10 (obviously). Each month, I will post a new art journaling technique to use on your page. The prompt will be to use an idiom for that month’s number to inspire your journal entry. You can find lots of ideas here: http://idioms.thefreedictionary.com/
First, before our kickoff date, each participant will need to make or obtain a journal with room to create your 10 journaling spreads. You may decorate your covers and extra pages as desired. Please use sturdy paper for your pages so they can support the work you will do on them.
You may make your journal however you like. One popular version is Teesha Moore's journal that is done with one large sheet of watercolor paper. Her easy-to-follow instructions are found on YouTube. It is in two parts, so be sure to watch both:
Every month, I will post a new number prompt and an art journaling technique challenge on the Yahoo Group message board. You will have the entire month to complete your page for that challenge. We won’t be swapping or mailing pages – you will keep the journal you create for your own.
