Journal prompt download

I created a pdf download to accompany my Good Coach series over at CRESCENDOh this month. Well, the download is available in this week's post and will be in the archives from now on!

There are 12 mixed media cards, some of which look like these photos (6 sheets, 2 up on a page) ready for you to print out at home and write on or cut up or whatever. Each card has a journal prompt that is related to the topic of artistic mothering. Just a little something to get you thinking.

If you want to download free some of my art head on over here.

 I also created a little folder to hold the 12 journaling cards so I have included also the how to directions for making the journal. It is really a simple project, and if you like folders and papers and books it is a satisfying project too. I hope you will take a moment to go visit and let me know your thoughts.

Oh and this weeks post is '5 tips for making time for art'. I wrote some pretty common sense things, but you know I need to be reminded of even the simplest things. When I doubt that, my husband says 'everyone knows how to do sit ups and other basic exercises, but there are countless exercise programs and books on the market which present some very basic truths over and over. He is right, we need to continually review and be reminded and refreshed. Sometimes the simplest things are the hardest to keep doing! 

These are the directions you get when you download the journal folder how to instructions!

I really appreciate Jenny Doh for creating this wonderful art space called CRESCENDOh and giving me the opportunity to be a part of it.


  1. Hi Shona, I just wanted to drop by and tell you that I've missed you! I've had company since last week and have three busy grandsons crawling and running all over the house right now--plus I have a cold. Don't get to see them but once a year or so.

    I haven't gotten to visit near as much as I like. Thought I'd squeeze in a visit while the grandkids are sleeping. :o)

    Can't wait to read some of this. :o) You've inspired me so much this month. :o)

  2. This is a great site! Very arty!...Daniel

  3. good idea..its good when the kids are into arty stuff that is why I leave my paints,pastels etc out so when they are in the mood they can have a quick play even if its only a minute or two

  4. I need lots of reminders to make time for art. My personal journey continues and I'm proud of myself because today I wrote and posted some poetry...inspired by Artistic Mother...thanks!

  5. umm I just snuck into my studio and shut the door, shutting out the kids - guilty. I hear Poppy the littlest looking for me calling "mummy"...I just need to have an uninterupted thought.
    Love the projects on Cresendoh, put a button on my blog.

  6. I love your advice on Crescendoh ... i need to print it out!

    and how often have i picked up one of those books on sit-ups and realized "stop reading about it and just DO it!" The same applies to my art ... I can get lost in books and ideas ... I don't need more, i just need to do what is already in my head!

    still carrying my expanded poetry tote and loving it!

  7. The journal prompts are fantastic! Thanks so much. I love them.
