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.
It’s been quite a year! And, now it’s time to say goodbye to the past year.
It’s easy to forget the importance of looking over our past, valuing it, honoring it and saying a proper goodbye. Without doing that, it’s hard to turn to the future and clearly see the possibilities there.
So, our own wise and insightful Carolyn Hawkins of WhollyPiecemeal is helping us with a way to manage the transition into the new year with an Art Journaling Goodbye to 2020. She suggests making three pages, a triptych if you like, or dividing a page into thirds. The three pages/divisions represent:
Where you are and have been in the past year,
The transition space you’re in now, and
What your dreams and goals are.
Create your pages to say goodbye to 2020, honor the transition and welcome the future!
