Every week in 2017, you will receive a new prompt card from Effy Wild. Designed to jump start your next art journal spread, these cards are printable for your future use as well, so you can expect to collect 52 cards by the end of the year!
Each card comes with a word, definition, synonyms, art prompt, and ‘oracle prompt’. You can copy/paste this information for your own records, and use it & the card in meditation, or in written or art journaling as you see fit!
A Couple Of Notes
I have released my “Ugly Duckling” class from Ever After 2016 as a standalone workshop in my teaching network.
This class includes unlimited, indefinite access and is comprised of video instruction as well as a step-by-step PDF walkthrough, an in depth interview on the subject of style development, and the Ultimate Notebook Tutorial. All lessons are instant access the moment you register for the course.
You will receive a complete supplies list as well as suggestions for substitutions. Your teacher will be accessible via email, and you are welcome to post your questions, comments, and images in the classroom.
Join me as we explore ‘The Ugly Duckling’ as told by Clarissa Pinkola Estes, and create this beautiful Klimt inspired mixed media swan! $29.
In One Bad Ass Art Journal this week, my lesson on creating painted papers and then using them in your art journal went live! The work that is appearing in response to my lesson is gorgeous & inspiring, and I am absolutely thrilled.
Here’s what Tiare (our hostess) has to say about it:
“One BADASS Art Journal 2017 was designed to empower you to create, to learn, to feel confident and provide you with the tools, techniques and encouragement needed to feel BADASS every day that you make art!
The theme for 2017 is: Embrace YOUR inner BADASS. You know, that BADASS who exists but perhaps you have been afraid to let out or maybe you don’t know she exists. That BADASS who will throw the paint, try the technique, be free in her art, who will play, who will enjoy her art, who will try! That BADASS that won’t allow fear to stop her, who gets up 9 times after being knocked down 8. Let us inspire, encourage and empower YOU to EMBRACE YOUR inner BADASS through BADASS Mixed Media Art Lessons.”
ONWARD TO WEEK #9
Feel free to save this image, and print it for your own personal use as an art journal prompt card OR as an oracle/meditation card. Print at your desired size using your printer settings on your computer. ATC size is 2.5 x 3.5 inches, and these cards were designed to be printed at this size.
Feel free to copy/paste this information for your own records:
To come forth into view or notice, as from concealment or obscurity. To rise up or come forth. To come into existence.
Appear, come up, materialize, rise, emanate, spring.
Explore what might be arising for you at this time. Include spring imagery in a spread to represent emergence.
What is arising for you at this time? What is ‘coming up’? What closet do you need to clear out or come out of? What stories need to be told?
Have a Great Week!
