I loved this. I’m a quote collector (but not a quote rememberer.)

My cirle of friends…

Its interesting to experiment with repetition, of words or images, in your journal. On this page I began with a rubber stamp called “Girl Frolic” and stamped it reapeatedly in a cirle. I will use this as a journal prompt and perhaps write about ” My cirle of friends” or the power of sitting and writing in a cirle, as we often do, in my journal workshops. Rubber stamps can be stamped repeatedly to make a pattern on a page.  Words can be repeated to make an interesting journal prompt:

If only…

If only….

If only…

Prompt: Try some repetition in your journal this week and see where it leads you.



Rock Crayons Rock!

9 Feb

I found my long lost “rock crayons” (see bottom right corner) and forgot how much fun they were. They look like rocks but work like crayons.  I’ve been playing with lettering and calligraphy again and had to try the crayons. Not their best use I must say, but my grandaughter, Tali, and I had a good time using them along with some stickers and drawing.  You can use the side of small bits of crayons to experiment with lettering and drawing.
