NaNoJouMo - 1

You've probably heard of NaNoWriMo, National Novel Writing Month where you write a 50,000 word novel in a month. I just found out about Dawn DeVries Sokol's NaNoJouMo, creating a journal page for each day in November.

Dawn will suggest a topic each day. You can interpret the prompt any way you wish, but the cool thing about art journaling is there are no rules except your own.  Since I'm starting out a couple of days behind, I decided to (try to) keep this journal simple with line drawings and maybe colored pencils. The focus is the "do" not what to do it with which can turn into a way to procrastinate. Sometimes I spend more time gathering materials or waiting for things to dry than completing an actual page.

Day 1 - Take Flight.

Lately, external pressures have made me wish I would be carried away by a giant bird or maybe turned into a giant bird and fly away.

How would you take flight?

  1. Love the NaNoJouMo idea. I wish you could take wing and fly, then you could come to MN. Before it snows here...then you could get snowed in and stay till spring...or summer...
