ARTFUL JOURNEYS - WEEK #34 "ARE YOU LOOKING IN, OR OUT?"

Hi everyone!  Betty here bringing you our weekly prompt, and we hope that it is something fun that will inspire and challenge you this week!

OUR PROMPT THIS WEEK:  WINDOWS

When you see a window, what does it make you think of?  Looking in?  Looking out?  Something deeper, more introspective?  That's it, that's why many of us journal.  To look inward, to be a little more introspective, to find a deeper understand of ourselves; to make sense out of chaos; to live our lives more fully and in a freer, more uninhibited way.

So what will you choose this week?  Go literal with drawing or rendering of a window or windows? Create many windows that you can look into?  Use a glassine window and let us peep into your world a little bit?  This prompt has so many opportunities for experimentation and exploration, the possibilities really start to become overwhelming.

I got overwhelmed at first, and slowed down and had a re-think and a do-over to come up with my final spread.  What will you do?



MELODY was very brave this week and used one of her least favorite colors to make an eye-catching spread.  Jump on over to her blog, and read all about it and see her full spread HERE




LYNN got all arty on us this week after having some time off.  Here's what she had to say:
Hello everyone!  I started with painting the page with Martha Stewart high gloss multi surface acrylic paint in indigo. After that I sprayed with a circle stencil with dylusions ink spray in cut grass.

My window was cut with the Cricut machine and I used alphabet stamps to write the words in the windows. Two glimmer stones on the top and bottom and a dot stamp all the way around with days of the week washi tape.

I photographed it but just couldn't get a very clear picture so it will be one that looks better in person then pictures. Check out what our other girls came up with. We all do such different work. Thanks for looking.




SHANA will wow you again this week with her wonderful and creative addition.  You can see the whole spread and read all about it on her blog, HERE




And lastly, I add in my two cents' worth and my take on this week's prompt.  You can see the full spread and my process HERE




We hope that you will visit all our blogs and find your own inspiration from what we offer up, or something that is already percolating in the back of your mind.  Have fun with it!

As always, share your journal page with us at ARTFUL JOURNEYS.  We wish you an artful and productive week!
