Happy Wednesday folks. Today I am back with an art journal share. This is another art journal page that comes from prompts from the monthly Mission Inspiration facebook group I am in, run by Mike Deakin. The mid-month prompts really offer a challenge or more freedom, depending on how you look at it. All you get for these is a word and no other guidelines. For some, this may make it harder, or for others easier. I find it’s a great way to break a blank page. If you are in your art journal and that white page is really glooming at you, stop and walk away. Grab your favorite book or magazine, open to a page and read. A word can easily jar your creativity tree and an idea will fall loose and onto the page of your journal. This month’s mid-month prompt was “Quite”. When I think of quiet I think of a cozy corner with a magazine, a good cup of coffee and just some much needed me time. That is where I went with this month’s prompt. I based it around a photo I have of me from 2014 sipping a really good cup of coffee in a coffee house. It also gave me a great chance to try out some of my new distress oxide colors like ground espresso!. It was quick, fun and just what I needed to scratch that afternoon journal itch.
I hope the page will give you some inspiration and a new way of tackling those blank white pages.
