Monday Art/Journal Prompt

Hello to another Monday art/journal prompt. How are you doing with your art journal? Are you actually completing pages? How does it feel?

This week I would like to suggest that you use some photos in your pages. You can use your own photos, which makes it quite personal.  Add journaling about what the photo means to you or about what was happening during the photo. Or you can use some random photo that you find and make up a story about it. Perhaps one that speaks to you on some level. Try to understand what it is that attracts you to a particular photo. Is it the story? Is it the colors? Is it the topic? Is it the composition? What exactly appeals to you?

I think we often are afraid to use photos in our art journals because they seem less like art than other things. Photos do not have to mean scrapbooking, but can also be added to art journaling pages for personal impact.

So go find a photo and see what you can do with it. And don’t forget to have fun!
