How The Prompts Work

Once you enter your email below, you will find a list of questions and prompts for each day of the month. What’s awesome is that you’ll automatically be enrolled for the prompts to your email each month, so it’s totally hassle free!

  • Each question is designed to make you think deeper about a topic or subject, so allow creativity to flow, and keep adding any extra thoughts to the page
  • Some prompts are specific to writing or drawing. Feel free to use your favorite medium, you have no obligation to stick to the rules!
  • If you only have time to be creative one a week, pick four of your favorite prompts from the below list and work through it that way
  • If you don’t stick to the schedule, that’s totally cool too! Pick one topic and make it extra awesome!

Use this list however you would like. The main thing is to remember to have fun with whatever you end up creating!

    Hello! As soon as I saw your journal I got so inspired I want to follow in your foot steps and do something similar! Is this a moleskin notebook? I have the same one and want to convert it now that I’ve seen this. It’s gorgeous!

      Hey Stori, yes it is! I use the plain hardback version – here is a link to it on Amazon. Honestly though, if you’re going to be doing more painting, I’d highly recommend looking for the Watercolor version they have, if they still make it. It will stand up to all mixed-media much better. In this one, I have to leave blank pages in between. It also barely closes anymore 🙂

    I love your style and your journals!! I was just wondering what materials you find work best for gluing down backgrounds and collage pieces? Does the weight of the paper help the images not get wrinkled? Thanks! 🙂

      Hi Stephanie! Thanks so much for the huge compliment!!

      I honestly just use Elmer’s All Purpose glue sticks for the paper, cardstock, and lighter materials! I never usually have an issue with wrinkling paper, but I do use clips on my books to keep the pages flat while drying.

      Then I use good old liquid Elmer’s school glue for everything a little more heavy duty! That includes any fabrics. I usually try to be careful with the amount of the liquid glue I use, and wait for it to dry, which can take a little bit of time…

      Bonus is that they’re both super cheap!! Haha.

      Is that usually just what you use?

      Hope that helps! Cheers!!
