New Challenge: UnBlank that Page!

Our own creatively curious muse – Carolyn Hawkins of WhollyPiecemeal – is sponsoring a challenge to help get past that blank page. It’s THE BLANK PAGE challenge time!

At some time we have all sat down to a blank page and wondered if we could just call it “White cat in a blizzard” and be done with it. This challenge will be a fun way to experiment with ways to make that page unblank.

If you want to play The Blank Page Challenge, take out any size paper and follow the prompts as they come your way. Share your creation as a comment to each prompt post. Create the first thing that comes to mind when you read the prompt. Remember: the point is to make the page unblank. Head to the Art Journaling for Beginners Facebook page to see examples.


  • 1. Read the prompt,
  • 2. Unblank the page,
  • 3. Share in all your favorite places.
