Here are the first eight days of December in my Christmas "fauxbonichi" journal. I opted to make each day a double-page spread, as I needed the room for all of the drawing and journaling prompts there are for this busy and meaningful month. The prompts are available through a Facebook group called Fauxbonichi Journalers. It's a really vibrant, well-run group with over 2k members. People post their images, give feedback & support, and there are often giveaways. It's a lot of fun; come join us!
Some standard things for putting on your daily pages are the date, the day, weather and temp. I also put sunrise and sunset times, humidity %, and info about where the moon is in its cycle. Doing this really feeds my Inner Nerd (my Inner Nerd is pretty much my Outer Nerd as well). I've learned a lot about the moon and have shared this with (read: ANNOYED) others.
Prompts for these pages include journaling and listing prompts; doodling, drawing, and lettering prompts; and prompts that encourage you to go into your stash of stuff and use it up. It's a lot of fun to be both challenged and to see what others have come up with. Always remarkable to see how the same prompt can yield such unique responses.
I use a lot of personal ephemera on my pages. I've always been one to save little scraps of this and that. I keep one smallish container for "smaller ephemera" and another one labeled "bigger ephemera". Pretty exotic classification system, hunh? I add to these bins fairly regularly, with images or words from junk mail and the like. I don't save the whole catalog or flyer -- just the image or words that have potential. I love working with the Random, because it makes my brain and sense of humor work harder. I'm pretty familiar with what's in these bins, so when I'm working on something, bing a light bulb will go off and the perfect item will suggest itself and then the DIG begins again.
I'll post again about this journal when the next set of four days is complete. Thanks for taking a look! :-)
