How do you want to be described by others?

Art Prompt Spread

Before we get to the fun stuff, I have to be honest. I woke up this morning with a particularly endearing expression burned onto my face. One that I went to bed with as well. Sexy, I know.

It was a pretty lame moment and one of the only things that’s keeping me from just screaming at the top of my lungs until the day is over is my plans with my mom for some art journaling! I’ve talked about it on the blog before, but my mom is one of my favorite people to do art projects with. Also topping the list is my sister, when I’m capable of making her join us. Plans to art journal turn my above face more into this face:

So this prompt developed rather organically after a conversation with my darling favorite roomie Kim about how she thinks I’m funny. Because she does–she thinks I’m hilarious. So does my mom. So does my sister. You know who doesn’t find me laugh out loud funny? David. It’s okay because he still thinks I’m clever, but there’s something to be said for being able to make someone belly laugh until they choke. Something I’ve never done to David.

It’s strange how very personal this prompt can be. I mean, it’s one thing to ask how you would describe yourself. That seems easy. But how do you want others to perceive you? That’s a personal question tangled up in ego and my ego relies on being funny, apparently. My page is mostly finished, although I think I’ll take the white hatching all the way to the top.

Art Prompt Final

I have some other projects to work on today, though, so I better get ready to chill with my mama! That makes my face look like….

Hope your Monday is a happy perky day the way I’m hoping mine turns into!


Silly Projects

I stumbled on this really fun blog and decided to jump into her project, 30-Day Art Journal Challenge. I didn’t realize how much fun I’d have with prompts until I started working on the two prompts already up, but I was definitely pleasantly surprised!Anyone else doing this? Definitely let me know, I’d love to see what you’re working on!

David helped with the second doodle, and the pun involved. The Elephant of Surprise is one of our all-time favorite jokes.
