I've been taking it easy on you, but now it's time to explore ways to dig deeper on those layouts about us. I challenge you to really try and stretch yourself with your journaling. It's so easy to write a sentence and call it good. I know because I do it all. the. time. But it's something I'm trying to get better at, especially when the topic calls for it. When digging deeper, also think about how your color palette may affect and enhance the mood of your page.
Today I have a series of journaling prompts and layout ideas to hopefully get those journaling juices flowing.
1. What's going on in your life right now, this very moment?
Take a minute to jot down what's going on in your life right now. When you think you're done journaling, push yourself to write a little more. You might be surprised with you have in front of you...in a good way.
Here's my version of "Right Now..."
2. Finish this phrase: "I am..."
Jennie describes herself with some basic adjectives.
3. Discuss a character trait that makes you who you are.
Christa shares about being optimistic. I love that great smile and girly, sophisticated color palette.
4. What are some things life has taught you?
Diane shares her "two cents" in this gorgeous layout.
5. Room for Improvement
In what area of your life can you improve on something? Lisa shares a layout about how she used to say she had low self-confidence, but then realized she really didn't
6. Talk about the tough stuffLife isn't always unicorns and rainbows, so your scrapbooking does not have to be either. Celebrate some of life's struggles or maybe even some silly little wrinkles like Christine.
