T Stands for A Day in the Life Journal Page


 I combined techniques from three of the Workshop Week 2021 workshops to create this journal page. Draw Your Day in Shapes with Samantha Dion Baker, Creative Journaling with Amy Tangerine, and Learn to Sketchnote with Emily Mills.

Follow the grey path to see how I spent my day. I really enjoyed these workshops especially the sketchnoting. I borrowed the cloud-shapes from sketchnoting to make the draw your day in shapes. 

Capturing the day in pictures reminds me of  our dear friend, Eileen's planner from The Artful Crafter In memory of Eileen, how many beverage cups did you find?

Drop by hosts, Bleubeard and Elizabeth's blog to find out what the rest of the T Stands For gang is up to. If you want to play, include in your Tuesday post a beverage or container for a beverage. Don't forget to link your blog to Bleubeard and Elizabeth's page.

  2. Wow, what a fabulous journal page! The cloud design arrangement reminds me of a "mind map" and your writing and illustrations are amazing - love it 😁. Happy T Day wishes! Hugs Jo x

  7. Now I would give the sketch note page an A+++ CJ. I love this. Too bad I am not teaching any more because this is what the kids needed to do. (The upper level kids would do this, but the not so scholarly ones-the ones that never came when we had to teach online in spring of 2020, would never do this much.Smile). I noticed Valerie said you should link this to Art Journal Journey. You absolutely should. I will look for it later-smile. Have a great rest of your T day. Hugs-Erika

  11. I counted five cups. Actually, one looked like a glass near your computer. This is a really unique way to share a day in your life with us for T this Tuesday, dear CJ.

    1. It's a fun visual record whether you use it for journaling or note taking

  16. This is a great page! I think I found 5, perhaps 6 beverages.
    I love the idea of those shapes. I reminds me of mind mapping I used to do when I was studying. I used to love doing these mind maps and I would learn as I went along and at exam time I would visualize the mind map and all the colors and shapes and i would usually remember all the points I would have to make and expand on.
    Salmon for dinner sounds nice.
    Happy belated T-Day,
    Hugs,
    Lisca

    1. 5 cups is correct. I like the technique. For note taking it's really helping me to remember what went on in a class.
