Hi Friends,

So glad you have decided to visit here today, happy Monday if there is such a thing!  It’s been a bit of a long and tiring day today so I’ll be quick…

Today’s Art . . .

Today’s art is a page using my Day 3 prompt:  Once Upon A Time

I used today’s prompt to tell this little story about the girl’s search for Prince Charming!!

I painted my page black and then used this Stamperia paper on top.  I bought this paper a year ago especially for my theme as it has a lot of fairytale elements included in it.  Then I used a white pen to draw the patterns and write the story.

OK, so who was surprised that Prince Charming turned out to be a cat?

Hope you feel inspired to join in the challenge this month and have fun with it!

Let me know what you think in the comments.   As always, thanks for reading!Ingredients

Daily Prompts

Here are the prompts I will be using and you can probably tell that a lot of them are related to fairytales, but you don’t have to use them that way or you don’t have to use them at all.  I will be attempting all 31 days but I may not make it and that’s OK too.  The prompts are there if you feel stuck or in need of extra inspiration.   I just respond well to a daily prompt and I will also be sharing my pages on Instagram.  If you share your work on Instagram there is a hashtag.  Please note, that to enter the Art Journal Journey challenge using the Mr Linky tool, you will have to link from a blog since it is a blog challenge.

Or you can ignore the daily prompts completely and focus on the overarching theme for the month.  The daily prompts are there if you want to make more pages but need some extra prompting.

Oh I like this story very much, and also the images you chose too Elle. This is such a perfect fairytale view, and snow of course makes the story much more dramatic. Thisis perfect for AJJ. Hope you have a nice Tuesday. Sometimes Tuesdays can feel longer than Mondays-but let’s hope not. Hugs-Erika
