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!

On An Enchanted Note

Ever After starts on July 1st. Are you ready to explore style development and fairy tales all in one fell swoop? I’ll be working with the Baba Yaga in a ‘two for one’ exploration of wisdom & resilience. Blind contour painting will feature strongly along with a more composed portrait. Come on over and check it out! The class also features this line up of your favourite mixed media art teachers!


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.

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

To make or become ripe. To come into maturity.

Age, mellow, come of age, grow up.

Create a spread about the areas of your life that are currently ‘maturing’ or ‘ripening’. What does it feel like to ‘ripen’? What does it mean to you to ‘come of age’?

What conditions are needful for a ripening to happen in your life at this time? What is coming into fruit? What isn’t? Where are things just right? Where is more time needed?

Enjoy! And have a great week!

As always, do whatever you feel inspired to do! Use what you have! Create in anyway you are inspired to create!
