On A Personal Note

I’ve been quietly engaging my art practice so far this year – banging out spread after spread, really feeling my way into expressing my heart on the page. When I first began art journaling, it was a way to serve a desire to be creative while I had writer’s block. Now I find that, while that block was eliminated quite some time ago, visual expression has become my primary form of expression.

Prompts are great, because having them means I never lack for a reason to sit down and create, but sometimes they can mean I’m bypassing my own stuff. I let this happen. I figure if I’m avoiding the real stuff that’s happening in my life, if I’m resistant to bringing it out into the journal, there’s a reason for it. I trust my process enough to know that it will come out eventually, organically, sometimes even unexpectedly.

As long as I’m maintaining my practice, I’m content with whatever is coming out onto the page. I don’t push. I unfurl.

I hope these first ten weeks in Journal52 2017 have served you well. I love seeing the work you do, and I love hearing that some the prompts have facilitated your own deeper excavation.


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.

In sharing your responses to these prompts on line, I ask that you use the following format:

“This week I’m working with the prompt “word” from Effy Wild’s Journal52 <linked to>. You can find the prompt and art card here. <permalink to the post for that week.>.

Please don’t lift the cards or written prompts from my website to share in your own spaces. Direct folks to the original post at so they can find it themselves.

Thank you.

Feel free to copy/paste this information for your own records:

The true or actual state of a matter. Conformity with fact or reality. Verity. The state or character of being true. Honesty. Integrity. Truthfulness.

Veracity, sincerity, candor, frankness.

Explore what truth means to you in an art journal spread. If you could speak any truth out loud, what would it be?

What truth is wanting to be told? What truth are you holding? Are you being true to yourself? Are you being true to your values?

Have a Great Week!
