Wonder31 #13: Pencil

“First, consider the pen you write with. It should be a fast-writing pen because your thoughts are always much faster than your hand. You don't want to slow up your hand even more with a slow pen. A ballpoint, a pencil, a felt tip, for sure, are slow. Go to a stationery store and see what feels good to you. Try out different kinds. Don't get too fancy and expensive. I mostly use a cheap Sheaffer fountain pen, about $1.95.... You want to be able to feel the connection and texture of the pen on paper.”

Wonder31 #12: Light

When I started art journaling I was confounded by collage. It seemed like the items were selected with such care, such forethought, such symbolism. But you know what? Not the case. There is visual balance, indeed, but this is something that you just get a feel for and get more comfortable with the more you actually do collage work.

How pleased I am that I've finished 12 prompts in 26 days thus batting about 461. A lot of folks are working the Wonder31s one-a -day and I am impressed by that level of creative gusto!

Wonder31 #10: Ten Favorites

Oh the irony, my friends. I got completely STUCK on this one. My favorite WHATs? Geez. I don't even know why I got so stuck but your responses to the post in the Daisy Yellow FB group kicked me back into gear and helped me realize that I needed to go to the ridiculous outer limits for this one.

Wonder31 #9: Wallpaper

So what on earth is wallpaper? Can we deconstruct this decorative wall covering? It's patterned or textured paper that you adhere to a wall, often with ornate or geometric patterns. It is a covering, an embellishment. Home Improvement stores used to have heavy volumes of wallpaper books that you could sign out and bring back.

Wonder31 #2: Snow Globe

It's a tiny land, an alternate universe of feathered pine trees, miniature Santa Claus statues, campy still life scenes, cliché landscapes, the characters from Monsters, Inc. The glass exterior sometimes skews or distorts the interior scenery within the globe. These kitschy contraptions can be made of thick glass or cheap plastic, and are often associated with tourist traps. But pick one up, shake it, and you will feel like a little kid again. Stare into a snow globe, watch the faux gold glitter spray down upon a fluorescent pink flamingo, and daydream.

Wonder31 #1: Minimal

“I am a minimalist. I like saying the most with the least.” 
Bob Newhart

The new series of prompts has begun and we're off to the races, as they say. I know that you guys are going to laugh when you see my interpretation of this prompt. Because I'm probably the only person who would think that my journal page is actually minimal by any stretch of the imagination.

Muse30 Prompt #30

Let's brainstorm some ideas for interpreting the prompt genuine. Real, honest, sincere, flawless, authentic, true. The opposite of fake or counterfeit or artificial. You could create a journal page divided into two parts. On one part, explore your own authentic words, writing, thoughts, documentation. On the other half, use alphabet stamps, a typewriter, print words from the computer, cut found poetry, as if it were manufactured and published. Or tell two stories, one fake, one real. Let the reader guess which is which!
