Inspired Mini Series: Art Journal Inspiration to Jewelry Week 2

Inspired Mini Series

This 3 free week series will help you feel inspired and teach you how to get inspiration and express your inspiration through making jewelry.

Each week you will receive 2 prompts.  The first is a journal prompt where you can write a list, journal or create an art journal page in any way you like.  You can use paint, crayons, collage or other mixed media, colored pencils or simply words.  I like making lists.  You may want to draw or write a poem.

The second weekly prompt will give you ideas to take inspiration from your art journal page and translate it into a piece of jewelry.  I’ll share what I made, but I expect that your piece will be quite different because your response to the art journal prompt will be quite different from mine.

Each week is full of inspiration and ideas to express yourself through making jewelry.

Now on to Week #2

Here’s the video:

Week #2 Art Journal Prompt is:

I feel happiest when . . .

You can respond in any way you like.

  • Make a list
  • Write it out
  • Write a poem
  • Draw a picture
  • Paint
  • Collage
  • Use photos
  • Anything at all you can think of to represent the prompt for you.

If this is your very first attempt at journaling, I recommend you simply make a list in response to the prompt and then maybe use some crayons, markers or colored pencils to add some color.

My Page:

I feel happiest when

I had some photos around, so I used photos.  First I added some paint for the background and then I cut down the photos and adhered them.  Finally I used used crayon to go around the photos.

The photos I used represented activities and people I feel happiest around.

I feel happiest when

Now, it’s your turn!  Use the prompt “I feel happiest when . . .” and create your own art page.  Like I mentioned above, it can be in any format you like or feel comfortable with.  Just do it and don’t get hung up on making something beautiful or perfect.

On Friday, we’ll pull inspiration from your page to make a piece of jewelry!

Reminder:  Today 2pm to 4 pm Eastern I’m answering your questions about anything.  It can be related to this mini series or anything jewelry related, creativity related or inspiration related or more!  Learn more and submit your question here.
