"Photography is not about cameras, gadgets and gismos.
Photography is about photographers.
A camera didn't make a great picture
any more than a typewriter wrote a great novel."
- Peter Adams
We continue our series of art journaling prompts! If you are new to Daisy Yellow, the idea behind these prompts is that It is Your Art, your page, your process. The prompts shortcut the "blank page" and get you started. The joy is in the process of creating art journal pages which are uniquely yours, playing with color + words + images.
<Puppy Love> Create a page about a pet's life as a human. Imagine the elaborate details of their home, job, friends, vacations, wardrobe.
<Wise One> Write a note from a very wise older person to you, praising you lovingly and lavishly for something kind that you have done in the past year. Write from their perspective, allowing yourself to enjoy the words.
<Comical> Using the form of a comic strip, document yourself playing a sport at which you are, quite frankly, clumsy as hell. Any sport counts, from ping pong to frisbee to tennis to miniature golf.
<Data Junkie> Use the tactics of a data junkie to quantify numbers related to your life. # flowers in your garden, # completed journals, # magic markers, # scarves, # movies in your Netflix queue, # Flickr tags, # Tweets, # photographs taken in 2009, # unmatched socks. Look at the ways Library Thing has sliced and diced its data. That must have been a fun brainstorming session!
<F-F-Fashion> Create, in words or art, a description of a favorite casual outfit from past or present. An outfit that meant pure comfort.
