Jeanette, I loved your page! I just wrote to a SCS member who needed an emotional lift and mentioned to "take one step at time". Next I saw your page and was so amazed by the coincidence! Thank you for sharing the link and your work.

Love! I really need to give my Art Journal more love... it has one half finished page - maybe these prompts are what I need!

Gorgeous work Jeanette!

Here are my pages for the second prompt: "Cup Half Empty & Half Full." My husband said that I was very brave "putting it all out there" on paper. It was very therapeutic for me, and that's what I often strive for with my art journaling. Sometimes my life really is "an open book."

Scrapjanny, I am loving your pages and thanks to you I got inspired and decided to follow the series.

Here is my first page:
Sunburst Art Journal Page - Tangent № 1 by Candida - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

I thought this was going to be a total fail because I used very cheap-bought-at-a-supermarket-kids-watercoloring-paints that started to rub off on my hand when the page was dry! So I grabbed a rag and gave the page a good rub before doodling. Now THAT is working a page to get it done!

Ooh, I love the colors on your page! I use inexpensive watercolors too. Yours turned out great!

Thanks for the compliments, and I'm so glad you decided to try the prompts.

Thanks! That's the way it goes sometimes. Good for you for being productive and creative, no matter what you did.

Finally. Got them done. Need to blog them but I will attach them here.

I had to get over the worry of if I was doing it "right" and just do.

The first one is a homage to my favorite role in a play (sort of a play on "star" of starburst which I also interpreted to be a sun). This page took about a month lots of stopping and starting and questioning.

The 2nd & 3rd pages I did together for the half empty/half full. I felt the need to spiral into the center for the journaling in half empty and to spiral out from the center in half full. I like the way these pages have similar elements but by just changing the direction of the journaling it affects the mood of the page on whether it is closing in or blooming out. I did more of the stream of consciousness writing that point by point but included everything I would have if I had done a point by point. These two pages took a day, well, probably half a day! once I decided what I was going to do.

I'm stuck on the 4th prompt because it isn't my thing.... I'll work it out.

Those are really nice! If you're stuck, or you don't feel like the prompt works for you, you can always improvise or "creatively interpret" it. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks. I guess it's the 3rd prompt but I'm just not a booklet creator. Art Journaling I can handle but I just don't feel the need to create a lot of chachkies. I make cards because I don't want more "stuff" and I especially don't want attachment to more stuff! LOL! I may skip it and journal why! LOL!

And then I went and watched the video tutorial... it is tempting. I know Art Journaling is supposed to be creating without an overt purpose - just create. I struggle with clutter and feel that this is borderline (says the person with a stack of cereal boxes to cut down for chipboard <-). I tend to create with a purpose and the Art Journal is supposed to contain my non-purposeful "art"

Kristen- I am so glad you wrote that. I struggle with clutter too. There seems to be a lot of clutter in art journaling. Art journaling comes easy to me. I have always loved it. I have been doing art journaling before it was popular and in the days if you did it you get the evil eye, lol. The only struggle I have with art journaling is the clutter. I am an upcycler but to a point, lol.

Am I the only one that also struggles with collecting all the bits and bobs from our trash can like cereal boxes, cracker boxes, bottles etc...? I don't really eat box food. I watched a video one time the lady had over a dozen boxes she collected in a couple of days from her grocery trash. Dozen boxes would take me a month. I might eat a bowl of a cereal once a year. I admit I have to buy chipboard. I admit I get a little envious of all the free chipboard you all collect, lol. That is the one thing I go through a lot of is chipboard.

Same here but luckily I drink a LOT of LaCroix. Do you get any canned drinks at all? I bet a convenience store would hold some for you.

I nearly bought some chipboard once... then I realized that we go through a box of cereal a week (not huge boxes because half way healthy cereals don't come in huge boxes except for rice krispies). Seemed a no brainer.

And we currently have 3 garbage bags (about a month or so) full to take to recycling (I miss curbside). We are ruthless at the moment. Glass jars, paper, tins, plastics ... all to regional recycling. Aluminium etc we take for money.

I keep looking into vegetable gardening which would cut a lot of waste.

Kristen- That sucks about no curbside recycling. Luckily I found a good garbage service in my area that does curbside. I don't really like my recycling center. They are thinking of shutting it down anyway because people keep throwing used needles and people are getting poked.

I love vegetable gardening. I am thinking of getting a couple of chickens. I am building a greenhouse. I guess you can see why I don't have a lot of chipboard, lol. I grew up eating a lot of vegetables, nuts and cheese growing up. What I call modern food I just don't like the taste of it. You get into mixed media and everyone is recycling all their food boxes. I have no food boxes, lol.

Lydia- I like the convenience store idea. The guys at my DH's work give me cans. I get some pretty cans and plastic bottles that way. I have a great convenience store in my neighborhood. They know I am an artist so they let me have things like the cigarette boxes. I don't smoke but I think the cartons are pretty especially for paper beads. My DH got one of those sliding metal displays the other day that store lighters.

I'm sad you don't have curbside recycling too! I don't remember life without it. I can't imagine having to store it all!

Took three huge bags of recycling to Regional recycling center tonight. TBH it is no worse that having to store all the different recycling bins when we lived in Oxford.

This thread is too funny. FIRST I have never seen the word "chachkies" written out, I don't know why I am finding it so funny. But I too hate chachkies all over the house. it makes me crazy. Clutter makes me crazy and we have SO FREAKING MUCH. I also have been in a create with a purpose mode for some time now and use my art journal to contain the non-purposeful stuff. I miss making all the massive cards I used to make tho and have considered doing card type work but just keeping it in a book - I still have enough cards to last a lifetime. SECOND the collecting and keeping of "trash" to use later. It makes me crazy. I save a small bit of stuff but not much - certainly not to the degree I have seen others do it.
