    I of course couldn’t only do the prompts.  I created several extra pages and goodies. I also included a box filled with various goodies as a Thank you for participating.

     

    Folders

    This first folder was created using Distress Inks on manila paper.

    Extra Separate Art Piece

    I enjoyed creating graffiti so I decided to create a simple piece with Ruth’s Blog name. It isn’t in the journal as its a separate piece that she can frame and hang somewhere if she wants.  It was created using Sharpie Brush Pens and Sakura Micron Pens.

    Prompts

    Decided to do a printout of the prompts to place at the beginning of the journal.  I used the image of a background I had created for something else to be the background for the prompts.

    Wrapping Paper

    I decided I would wrap the journal and the art piece but instead of using store bought wrapping paper I decided to create my own using acrylic paint and thin kraft paper.

    Round Robin Journaling: Back Cover and Pet Rock Sneak Peak

    Back Cover

    To create the back cover I used chipboard since its thicker then cardstock. I covered it in wrinkled tissue paper for texture using gel matte medium and painted it using latex and acrylic paint. I used label paper and rice paper to create some of the pieces.  I also used masking tape, labels, stickersm acrylic paint pen and Sharpie Brush Pens.

    Pet Rock

    I had a hard time finding a rock but eventually I found one.  I actually used two rocks.  Basically my pet rock has a pet rock.  I gessoed both rocks and painted them using acrylic paint and Faber-Castell Brush Pens.  For one of the rocks I used gears, pebbles, tubes and a few other items.  I also created a little back story for my pet rocks which I included in the journal.

    Round Robin Journaling: Favorite Painting and 3 People You Would Like to Meet Sneak Peek

    Favorite painting from your Favorite artist. Have the other create an inspired painting, drawing etc based on it.

    • Ruth’s Favorite Artist is Joseph Stella. Favorite painting Brooklyn Bridge – Night View.

    I had a really hard time with this one.  I wanted to do this one using a bridge from her hometown or atleast her state but none of the bridges “called to me” so I decided to use the Benjamin Franklin Bridge from Philadelphia. I created this prompt with watercolor crayons, Sakura Micron Pens, Sharpies and Uniball Signo White Gel Pen.

    If you could meet 3 people living or dead who would they be?

    Page was created with watercolor crayons, Sakura Micron and Identi-Pens.  I hand drew my three people.

    Round Robin Journaling: Create a Doodle and Blackout Poetry Sneak Peek

    Create a Doodle and Hide these Five Items within the Doodle – Cat, Worm, Mouse, Dice and Key

    I created this on the front and back of a folded watercolor paper using a Sakura Micron Pen. I hid the items along with several others in a garden-like scene.

    Blackout Poetry

    I had a hard time doing blackout from pages from novels but when I switched to poetry I had a much easier time.  I decided instead of just blacking out I would draw and doodle using Sharpie Brush markers and Sakura Pigma pens.
