I am feeling a lot better today than I have the last week or so. I started back to work this morning which was nice, as my client said he missed me 🙂 Yesterday, I went for a drive with my son and it was great to get outside.
I have completed a few more prompts on the JJ I am following along with Linda Israels January challenge on Youtube and in her FB group.
PROMPT 7 – Find a Poem that inspires you and create a page with inspiration from the poem you found. Journal about why the poem inspires you.

I used some watercolour paper and painted some ink on to it. I then added water droplets for some texture. I stamped the butterfly, with Stazon ink so it wouldn’t bleed, with my Stamparatas twice and cut one wing out, to use for the journaling. I attached it at the body so it would flip up. I added the poem and a smidge of embellishment.
PROMPT 8 – Write a compliment to yourself abut something you accomplished recently. Centre your journal page around that.

I made a tag and covered it with a napkin. I just added a coffee dyed doily and a quote. I bit trim to finish it off.
This prompt was a little out of my comfort zone………..
I journaled that I do receive a few compliments from my friends usually about my hair or something I am wearing. To me, it feels a little funny and I think I get a bit anxious.
The compliment that I would make to my self would be…………….” that I am a good friend” A couple of friends have been through rough patches and they were there for me when we lost mum and dad, plus my broken arm. It was nice to return the favour and be around for them to talk to if needed. I am pretty easy going and I feel most people can open up to me and feel at ease.
PROMPT 9 – Pick three colours for your journal age and only use them to create your page. Write about your favourite colour or why you picked these colours for your page.

For this prompt, I picked the colours gree/pink/cream. I have been a blue girl all my life and I still love it but thought I would do something different as I made a complete Blue Journal last year.
For this page, I wanted to make a flip out so I used some napkin with sealer over and under it to adhere it to a piece of cardstock. I then added a bit of lace trim when dry.
I then added taped to a small folded section on the left so it would open up to my journaling. I just added some pattern paper in those shabby chic colours that I liked. The paper under the journaling will stick out of the journal but that is just a fun element, like tabs you can use n your journal.
PROMPT 10 – Use an image from a book or magazine. Use it on your journal page and write about something that happened today that made you feel good………………

I found this cute little kitty image in one of my Daphne’s Diary magazines and I thought he would look nice on the front of the little pocket I made for the journal tag. I just layered a few diff papers underneath and stamped the quote on the bottom. I journaled about the lovely day I had out with my son.
I hope you are enjoying the Prompts as much as I am. Hoping to get a few more done this week 🙂
Have a great Monday
