Friday, February 22nd, 2008

while cruising through the gallery at studio calico a few months ago, i came across this layout by bruinbr. i filed it away as a really cool journaling technique. i often journal around a shape, but not up and down, over and under like kim did. so that’s my challenge for you this week. and here’s a few more examples to spark your creativity:







Challenge #62 – by the numbers

Tuesday, February 12th, 2008

I think I have a fun challenge for you this week – use numbers as the basis of your journaling. What does that mean? Almost anything!

You could make a list of things like how many purses you own, how many diapers you change in a day (lucky you if that number is zero!), what time you get up…

Or you could choose a specific number and run with it. What was the number on the house you grew up in and what memories do you have of that house? Did you ever ask a cute boy (or girl) for their phone number and did true love ensue? How much did your first baby weigh and what was the feeling upon seeing that sweet face for the first time? The possibilities are endless.

Challenge #61–Can I get you something to drink?

Tuesday, February 5th, 2008

It’s only polite, ya know, to offer your guests a beverage. So, what’s your favorite? Beverage, that is. Something you drink all the time, or something that is for special occasions. Adult beverage, or something for the kid in you. Tell us what you like to drink!
