Shared Journaling Experience: Sum Sum Summertime Week 1
Ruth at Twelve Squared Creations is starting a new prompted writing and art journaling project on her site. I originally was part of a test group for her first one. It was fun and allowed you to be as creative as you wanted. It was great seeing how differently others interpreted the prompts. I highly recommend it.
The prompt for week one is an iconic summer memory, like the scene in Grease. When I saw the prompt I immediately knew what I would do. The image of a ferris wheel from Playland which was an amusement park I used to go to with my family growing up and fireworks came to mind. We always had a lot of fun there and went several times in the summer. Even though it technically should be done with a group and currently I am only a group of one I still wanted to do it.
I originally planned on it being night with the ferris wheel in the forefront and fireworks in the background. However I got distracted and used a light blue gelato instead so I had to leave out the fireworks. The background looked a bit empty so I added some birds. The birds and ferris wheel were created with Faber-Castell Pitt Brush Pens. The page border and word borders were created using distress inks. I attached the admit one tickets and the words with scor tape. I included four tickets because my family was a family of four. So one ticket for each of us; my mom, dad, brother and me.
