Weekly Art Journal Prompts for Soulful, Creative Expression

Weekly Art Journal Prompts and Link-party for Soulful, Creative Expression

Just look around you... inspirations can be overwhelming.
Are you more a visual person than a writing person who prefers not to "write" a diary,
and need that gentle nudge to dig out the sketchbook and art supplies that are gathering dust in your drawer?

As for me, a Haathi Chaap journal was indeed gathering dust in my drawer! 
The illustrated poem I had done in mid-2012. 
Art Journal - Painting Poems

... and a Sketch-a-Plant done earlier
Art Journal - Sketch a plant

If we are on the same page,
how about a weekly rhythm to bring back the creative discipline in your busy week? 

Let's make a beginning with an affirmation.
These prompts are just ideas. You can stretch them as far as imagination can go!
Here is your first prompt for the week 10-16 March 2014 

"Creative Freedom"

(1) It can be an illustrated quote, or a painting, type, doodle, collage, a moodboard - you just run wild!
(2) Post it on your blog, and link up on the linky in this page. If you don't have a blog, pls send me the digital journal page OR photograph of the journal page, and I will link it up here. My email 
(3) Do share this on your blogs/other social media so that More-the-Merrier! Bring your friends along.
(4) Please link back to this post on your blog
(5) Pls do meet-n-greet the other folks linked up here

Please remember, this is not a contest. It is a vent-out space to meet like-minded creatives and discuss everyday creativity boosters. It is meant to be a soulful, creative process of self-expression.
The intention is to keep drawing, to keep coloring, to keep cut-pasting inspirations, keep blogging, to keep our creativity outlets open and not let it fizzle out inside.

Here's to living and journaling a creative life!
Go to this master page to see all the prompts and pages linked up so far.
