The challenge week 3..

WOW! I am having so much fun with these prompts...Thank you so so so much Janel I can't believe we're half way through the 30 day challenge already! I am definitely going to continue this daily journalling and am already doodling down a few prompt ideas of my own to be getting on with because otherwise I think I'd go crazy when this challenge ends!

I am also loving checking out everyone else's pages in the flickr group. I think it's amazing to see everyone's different styles using the same prompt!

So anyway...Here we go with week 3..

Journal prompt 15... Goals! Today I would like you to brainstorm some goals for the upcoming month. A short list of goals that will be attainable to accomplish in one month.



Well I know how time flies so I'll keep my list short and therefore pretty simple to accomplish! I love lists so much..Jacob laughs at my list making and my Mum is amazed that I make them and yet still forget everything! Doh! Still lists are fun huh??

Journal prompt 16..What are you wearing today? Today's prompt is short, sweet, and straight to the point :) What are you wearing today? Write it, doodle it, cut it out of a magazine, whatever!



Well here's mine.. I'm wearing my favourite outfit at the moment! This is my favourite dress.. I made it in the cutest cake material ever! I LOVE it soooo much! I am very proud of myself. Also I am wearing my denim bloomer shorts..So cute! I love the whole bloomer style. Neon pink converse..Lots of accessories and I'm ready to go go go! Have a lovely Tuesday guys!!

Journal prompt 17... Today you are going to illustrate a day. It can be today, it can be yesterday, it can be a significant event that you have had in your life :) Use pictures, labels, words, doodle, sketches, anything you want, to describe your day! This is a cute one. Enjoy!



Okay so its only 5.30 and I'm about to eat my dinner but I will keep to the exact plan for the rest of the evening...Especially the play with kitten bit at 9.00!

I loved this prompt... It reminded me of pictures I used to do for Jacob when we used to only see each other on Sundays... Sunday funday we used to call them! Today was one of those sweet kinds of days!

Here's a poster I made for Jacob.. I love doodling for him..He's my muse and the reason I started doodling again after a very long time!



I think we should all doodle a note for the one we love!!

Journal prompt 18...Music is one of my most favorite things ever!! It translates emotions that I can't even imagine putting into words. I love it. Today I want you to create a playlist of some kind. It can be your summer playlist, your July playlist, songs from your wedding day, or favorite songs of all time :) This one will be another fun one to look at down the road :)



Well as far as music is concerned there's only one band that means the world to me! Then there's lots of stuff I love!!

Journal prompt 19... Today I want you to create a "guide to your city." What are the must-see things that you would want a visitor to experience in your city. This can guide can be for your city, town, or state. I am really excited to see these and to maybe even use them in my future when traveling!! Have fun with this!!!



I love living here..it's got a name for itself as an old people's kind of place but it has everything I need really..The sea..beaches..magical islands..woods.. countryside.. So I made a few reasons why you should visit my county Dorset.

I love Brownsea Island best! It's just magical over there..There are other islands I want to visit too in the harbour. Oh and Hengistbury Head is beautiful..Cliffs..Beach..Woods..its got everything, I love how it doesn't feel any different there from when I went as a child! And Kimmeridge! Possibly my favourite place EVER!!! This is why...


THE most tranquil place I have ever visited..Come to Dorset if only for this!

Journal prompt 20...Here is the age old question, what is in your bag?? This has always been a great photo prompt that i have seen all over the blog world. Today, you are going to write about the contents of YOUR bag, or illustrate it, or take a picture of it, whatever :D



Here's me...And my bag!! :)

It's hard to believe I never used to carry a bag before I had Noah really. I used to stuff things in my pockets! Now I carry a mini version of my world around with me! My id badge..wallet.. journals..pens..loose change..mints..my camera Boris..perfume..tissues..pens..phone..powder puff..lipstick..purse..keys..mp3 player..umbrella..Gigi my little cat phone holder and SANTA!! Haha dear old Santa he travels about with me ready for any photo opportunity!

Journal prompt 21..What is your most favorite quote? A quote that inspires you, or your mantra. I literally have 4 journals from college filled with quotes that inspire me and make me smile. Today is the day to share your inspiring words with your friends :)



Well for me it had to be this one.. Audrey Hepburn was one hell of a lady. I love all her movies and this quote is inspirational! Of course I believe in PINK! But I probably need to get a lot better at being strong! I'm working on it :) Wow the end of week 2! I'm starting to think about what to do next...This has been so much fun! I have loved waking up and checking to see what the latest prompt is, and I have met a lot of fun people on the way! Anyway...Roll on next week.. I'm waiting!

The challenge.. Week 2

So after a super fun first week, here I am on Monday day 8! I love Mondays..They are the underdog days that nobody likes but I LOVE them! Hello Monday..Lets have a cuddle!

Prompt 8..Today, I want you to illustrate an "inside joke." I want this to be a page that only you and a few other people would get. Inside jokes are always fun (well, when you are apart of them I guess).



Well..Here's mine! It's dedicated to my brother who I love dearly. He's one of my best friends and we've always been very close. He's 3 years younger than me but will always be my BIG brother. We have several in jokes..He'll understand this and he'll smile. I love it when he smiles!

Journal prompt 9...Choose another person who is vert significant in your life right now. It can definitely be the same person that we wrote about on day 3, but I chose to do someone different. Anyway, this prompt is going to be all about those wonderful adjectives, and typography. Describe your special person with as many words as you can fit. For each word, try to use a different font or writing style. This is a great way to practice fun typography!



I did my page about my Jacob again! because I am so in love with him and he seemed like the perfect person to describe! Plus this typography prompt reminded me of this doodle I drew for him ages ago..



So I decided to use that idea on one side of the page and work with all the adjectives and different fonts on the other side! I loved this one...Jacob is so easy to describe.. He's perfect for me.. He's my muse!


Oh and whilst looking up fonts I found this awesome one.. In fact it has to be my favourite font EVER! Beard font!



How cool!? We love beards!

This prompt is all about collections. What do you collect? If anything. Do you collect buttons, clothes, shoes, friends, parking tickets, whatever!! Illustrate your collections. This will be fun to look back on someday and see how your collections have grown or have moved on :)




So here's mine.. I collect too many things! I put them all on my wall of shelves like a grandma, except my collection if plastic and brightly coloured! Well that was the inspiration for my doodle...My shelf display! This one was really fun!

Journal prompt 11... Today is another one of my favorite pages. And speaking of favorites, this is a page all about your faves!!
We are going to list your favorites in each of these four categories:
* TV shows
* Music
* Food
* Splurges



I have lots of favourites... I only struggled with TV shows because there isn't much that I HAVE to watch these days! So I added tales of the city and twin peaks because they were unmissable!!!!I LOVED this page so much!! Can't wait to check out everyone's faves in the flickr pool!


Journal prompt 12 is all about trends. Whether you consider yourself "trendy" or not, I bet there are a few trends that you find yourself gravitating to. If not, you can create a page of trends that you think are lame too, it's up to you :)



Well that's mine! These are all the styles that make me...ME!! I create my own style and my own clothes so here are all the little aspects I take from other things and stick together to create Kittypinkstars wardrobe!!

Journal prompt 13 Silly insecurities....we all have them unfortunately. If you don't, you are my hero :) Today I want you to document your insecurities, face them, write them down, reflect on them, and get them out of your system. Somewhere on your page I want you to write "BUT..." This will lead in to tomorrow's prompt :) This is definitely not a fun prompt but it's kind of necessary in order to move past them.



I always like to write this stuff down... I have so many of them too! Bah I wish I was more balanced!

Journal prompt 14...Ok, now that we have all of the yucky insecurities out of our system, I want us to completely focus ONLY on the things that make you the amazing person that you are. What are the qualities that you possess that make you so wonderful? Don't be shy and don't be modest either on this one :)



WOW! I am not as good at these pages...Yesterdays was easier but these are the things that I think are good about being lil old me! Oh and a few that my boys always tell me!!

Yay! I'm not so bad after all huh!!??

WOW!! What a great second week! Janel you rule! Thanks so much for these prompts... I am loving every moment of them and waking up early to see what the new one has in store for me! And it's such fun to see everyone else has been up to in the flickr pool!

Now I'm ready for next week....Bring it on!!!!

I took up the challenge!

YES! Well after taking part in the Red Velvet Art journalling class with Elsie and Rachel..(I'll blog about it next) I discovered a new love (Jacob would say obsession!) JOURNALLING!

it really helps me to empty my head an express my feelings in one of my favourite forms....The trusty doodle! So when the awesome Janel at Run with scissors started a free 30 day journal prompt project, I was in there like a shot! And here are my entries so far..

Prompt 1...Create a full page design introducing yourself :)
Highlight your name many times in the midst of your design.
Have fun, be creative, don't stress, just jump right in!!



These are always my favourite sorts of pages..The kind of crazy mind emptying I love to do on a daily basis..Oh and especially when I'm in any kind of class!

Prompt 2...What is the BEST part of your day?
Is it working out?
Is it "quitting time" at work?
Is it dinner with the fam?
What is it?
You can write about it, draw it, sketch it, doodle it, anything you like!



I have too many best bits! I like to find the magic in everything and treasure evry little moment!

Prompt 3... Hello friend! It's always nice to share with someone why you love them. Today, I want you to draw a picture, doodle, sketch, of a person who you love, or admire. Then, write that person a letter telling them why they mean so much to you!
If you are intimidated at the idea of drawing a portrait of someone, draw objects that represent that person or draw their name in a creative way.



Well.. If you know me, you know how much I love this boy! We've been together for 18 months and I am still every bit as much in love with him as when I first saw him.. Read about it in the comic I made him!

Prompt 4...What does your heart look like? It can be literal, it can be symbolic, it can be broken and need fixing...anything!



Mine's soft and squishy! It's been broken but it's stitched back together!!
He made it better!

Prompt 5...We are all obviously bloggers right, or else you wouldn't be here :) Even if you don't have a blog, I know that you read them.
This page is dedicated to your favorite blogs!! What are they? Are there any blogs that you can't go a day without checking?



Right now it's these guys! I need to get better at blogging! Maybe this challenge will help me!?

Prompt 6...It's time...
It's definitely time to do something. It may be a new season for you in your life, or a time to make some goals, or it may just be time to relax (because it's Saturday right?).
Draw something that represents the word time and then make a list of things that you need to do at this time in your life, or day, or week :)



Time flies....I'm ALWAYS chasing it! But these are the things I need to take time out for! Time together is never quite enough huh??

Prompt 7...Today is an easy one... How are you feeling today? Sometimes it's really good to reflect on your feelings and try to figure out why you are feeling a certain way.



Today I feel happy..excited..funny..sunny..magical! I want to smile ..love and have fun! My hidden message was how I feel about today.. FULL OF MAGICAL OPPORTUNITIES!!

This week has been brilliant and journal prompts are super fun!

Well that was fun and its only the first week!! I am very excited to be doing this challenge and will be checking the flickr group to see what everyone else is up to!!
Pop by and say hi ok? It might inspire me to be a better blogger!! Love Kitty xx
