I have posted previously about creative journaling that I do. Up until recently it was something I did to celebrate or mark an occasion or memory. This meant that I could go weeks without doing a page.
I had seen the lovely Geraldine mention on her Blog, YouTube and Instagram something called The Documented Life project. Unfortunately the original project doesn’t run anymore however there is a Facebook group set up for a 2017 similar version.
Each week on the Life Documented 2017 Facebook group and blog a Prompt and Quote are posted for you to follow. There is also a monthly overall theme. Of course you don’t have to stick to the themes and you can do use your own ideas.
I didn’t start this journey until February but I’ve really enjoyed it so far. I really like the prompts and quotes as they force me to be more creative and think out of the box.
I will be posting regular updates on this project.
Right, let me go through the spreads so far I have undertaken which are all in my Webster’s Traveler’s Notebook.
My first week was Week 5.
Challenge: to incorporate a Zentangle or doodle in my journal.
Prompt: “Do not fear mistakes – there are none.” Miles Davis
Quote: “I love Layers” Alexander Wang
For this spread I actually did the ballons and tree’s as fold up flaps so I could write within them as you can see on the 2nd picture.
Quote: Even after all this time, the sun never says to the earth “Look you owe me” Look what happens with a love like that, it lights the whole sky – Hãfiz
For this spread I chose to do heart ballons for the week days amongst a night sky. Using quote on the tag.
And that is me up to date. This week’s spread is something that has taken me completely out of my comfort zone and made my inner perfectionist cry, but that’s a good thing!
Thanks for reading.
