Art Journaling Chat & Crop 7Am Et Monday

28 posts in this topic

Are you interested in learning digital Art Journaling? Excited about the layouts you've already created and anxious to make more? Join Jode (Jode2771) and Marilyn (MariJ) in the chat room on Monday, October 14 at 7 AM ET for an Art Journaling Chat and Challenge. Art Journaling basics will be discussed and a prompt (or two!) for starting a page will be provided. This is a good time to learn about how to begin and complete an Art Journal page and what it's all about!

This is an early ET chat in order to accommodate members in other parts of the world. Next Month's November will again be a PM ET chat.

Please post your completed layout in the Art Journaling Chat and Challenge Gallery Have fun! Layouts can be posted in the gallery throughout the month and you can do as many as you want! We can't wait to see what you create. :D

The CHALLENGE

For this month our theme is "Super ME". :superhero: Since Art Journaling is personal to yourself, we'd like to challenge you to scrap about YOU.

There are two prompts, you can do either, both or combine them together into one page!

 

1. Each one of us is a Super Hero! Think about the different traits and characteristics you possess.

What do you consider your "best"? Your "worst"? Journal and scrap about whatever comes to you.

You can even try scrapping your best AND worst on one layout.

 

2. If you could have one Superpower, what would it be? Think about a supernatural strength or power you would like to have and create a page around it. Maybe you wish you could fly, have x-ray vision or the ability to heal?? You can create your own power or borrow one from a SuperHero and your page can be as deep or as light hearted as you want...

 

And -- SURPRISE! :yippee: Debbie is so excited about Art Journaling she wanted everyone who participates to be able to purchase products for their layout! So, she has provided us with a COUPON which will give a discount of 25% off anything in the Art Journaling Category - good through Oct 19th.

The code is: artjournal

THANKS DEBBIE! :thanks:

Looking forward to the chat Marilyn and Jody. I have to pick Nikki and Bianca up from school today and my sister is coming for supper tonight. My day is going to be pretty hectic but I will be there.

Just give me the prompt or two! If I happen to wake up around 4:00 am, I'll sign on, but don't count on it.

Thank you Marilyn & Jody. It was a great chat. I long to settle in and have a go. Think I'm procrastinating as unsure of just where / how to begin. Off to bed now. Thanks again. Kay xxx

Thank you all for coming, it was such a fun chat! If you need help getting started remember to try and come up with ONE idea and work from there - think colours, textures, how it feels... and try and convey THAT. Photos are ok but we are not encouraging it as it make it too easy to slip back into normal scrapping - go with your thoughts and feelings and show us a glimpse of YOU :-).

Marilyn and Jody - thank you for such a fun and useful chat. Thank you so much for going back over the basics of how to start an AJ page and for the fantastic prompts for this month. I'm itching to get started on a layout, I have an assignment to turn in first.....but perhaps later this evening I'll be able to get onto it.

That was a great chat this morning. I chose, partly, what super hero I would like to be. Yoda is my spiritual hero and so I shared the page with him. Here is my Art Journal Page:

great chat last night. Glad I could make it...I knew there was a reason I work late on a monday evening and the timing was perfect for this chat. Was starting to droop a bit at the end but when I got in bed my mind was thinking.......... anyway I had a lay in this morning :)/> Will have to do a layout tomorrow as busy today :)/>

Love the prompts! Sent a little while working on a page, but we had an end of season golf event that took up most of the day. I'll get it finished and posted tomorrow.

The chat was a bit early for my midwestern time schedule, but thanks for the prompts to get me started on a page.

This page turned out totally different than I envisioned when I started. In fact, I went from one prompt to the other.

I'm thinking that may happen often in art journaling as you start to get in touch with what you're really feeling at the moment. A change in direction can be good.

 

So, if I had a super power, right now I'd choose to be able to Stop Time.

I thought I would just whip this one out in no time...but for some reason I struggled with it. Not sure it's right yet. But HERE it is

I decided to do another Art Journal page. This one is about my fascination with Time Travel and how I would love to have the super human ability to go back in time. I would revisit lots of fascinating times like the American Revolution, Queen Elizabeth's reign, and other moments in history. What fun I would have traveling from one time to another. Maybe even go into the future for a quick look.
