52 Challenge Art Journal

 

52 in 52 Art Journal Challenge

Happy Birthday to Me! I turn 52 this year. There are 52 weeks in the year, so you know what is coming…some sort of weekly challenge!

Art Journal Challenge

What to do? Something different each week? I turned to an art journal challenge. I’ve been dabbling in smash books the last few years. Smash books are free form scrap books, full of paper, pictures, other remembrances and souvenirs. I made one for both our New Zealand vacation and my CO-GAP bike ride last year. It was fun to create.

The original idea was to use a different type of art media each week, but I realized I needed some ideas to create with the different form of media.

Create a new art journal page based on prompts each week

I randomly created these prompts.

The plan is to just grab a pencil, close my eyes, and stab a prompt, that will be the prompt for the week. One week gives you plenty of time to work on the spread.

Except for Week One. Week One is my birthday week, so the prompt is “birthday cake”.
