So, for today's prompt, number 13, I'd like you to use coffee filters in your work. My Mom was looking around the internet today, and found a bunch of cool things made entirely out of coffee filters. Personally, I thought they were pretty cool, and I was inspired to use some in my art. I want to see your creative ways of using coffee filters!! So.. go create!

Today's challenge is to use a monochromatic color scheme. This is actually one of my absolute favorite things to do in a journal. It's fun to experiment with different shades and tones of the same color, and to see how they react with each other, learning which ones play nicely! You could use any color you want - one that's significant to you - for example; your favorite color, a birthstone color, or your favorite football team color. So... go create!

Today's challenge is to write a journal entry and then cover it up. You see, the original art journal was used like a diary with some art involved - it's changed a whole lot since then. I do this a lot - I'll write a journal entry on one of the pages then cover it up using collage, paint, glue, stamps, or any other number of things! This works especially well if the thing you are writing about is something that you'd rather forget or would like to let go. So, go create something today!

So today's prompt is to use a photograph on your art journal page. Personally I think this is a little known fact in the art journaling world - photographs actually make excellent additions to pages. It's pretty much the same thing as a magazine picture that most of us use to collage our pages, just more personal. So go create something today - and make it personal!

I love using different kinds of grids on the pages, but, the thing is, some people have trouble with using and mixing patterns. It is sort of a normal type of phobia for any type of crafter; mixing and matching different pattern papers. My challenge today is to use a grid, check, square, or plaid pattern somewhere on the paper. You could stamp, glue papers, draw with markers, or whatever else you can think of. So... go create!

I'm feeling colorful today! I challenge you to use each and every color of the rainbow on a page. It's not that hard - just a tiny piece of something can count as a color. And there are only seven colors in the rainbow! Bonus: you can use a rainbow on your page! If you use an actual rainbow picture, then you don't have to worry what the rest of the page looks like!
