Daily Paper Prompt #2: Windows

“Nourish your eye and spirit with inspiring things.
They will bloom with your tending.”


The prompt today is to cut a window in paper. 

Using an x-acto knife against a fabric cutting board, cut a window in an index card or cardstock. If you have a rotating blade, try curves or waves. Place the window on top of various backgrounds to see what you like best behind your window. Experiment with paint or pattern on the "frame" and on the area behind the frame. Or cut a window in one page of your journal to see through to the next page. Another way to interpret this prompt would be to draw a window, including the view that you see through the frame.

Still working in index cards at the moment, because they are such a great little "canvas"!

I really enjoyed this one.....did not especially like cutting out the panes though. The window
reminded me of the song that starts out "Looking out of the window....", Brave New Hope by Basia. thanks for making this a fun summer of creativity.

This was such fun BEcause I have so many "windows" from cutting out squares and circles for teaching and for a painting I did a few weeks back. It was fun in the after phase to fiddle with them and make windows and rainbows together!!

I just started icad. I did "rainbow" and am looking forward to "windows" tomorrow. I paid attention to the thoughts and words wandering thru my mind as I was coloring with my Sharpies, and suddenly had lots of phrases and ideas for poems!

Discovered your site a week ago and you have so inspired me to get back into art journaling. I am thoroughly enjoying the joy of creating and exploring using a variety of media. Thank you for inspiring me again to pick up the paintbrush.
