Thankful Thursday: starting tomorrow

Welcome to all those who are following the blog and have joined the group on Facebook.  I am quite overwhelmed by all the new people who are planning to join in and thankful for those who are regulars to my art challenge blogs and want to continue.

I would recommend that even if you only do it for November that you follow the blog through a reader, (I use Feedly,) an RSS feed or whatever way you choose to follow blogs.

You might also want to follow NewlyCreative through November too where I will be posting my journal.

Technique Challenges
Each few days there are techniques to use on your page.  If this doesn't stretch you enough or you don't have the products to be able to try the technique then you can download a list of other techniques.  I have designed it so that you can cut the page into strips, once you've printed it out, and you can put the strips into a container and pull one out each day.

There is a pdf to download with links to the videos.  It is available on each blog post but you only need to download it once for each few days of a technique.

Of course you don't have to stick to just one technique on a page.  The technique topics are Ranger Distress products, texture, resist, stamping, stencils and water-based media.

Quotes and Bible Verses
Each day there is a quote or a Bible verse for you to use on your page if you wish.   If you want to be able to print them out in one go rather than each day then you can download them here:    Quotes     Bible Verses

I suggest you use the inks, sprays, paints, stamps and papers you already own to make the journal truly yours.  When you look at my pages on NewlyCreative they are there solely for inspiration, not for you to copy.  I use a lot of Dylusions and other Ranger products but you don't have to.  Use what you have.  Some of the techniques may not work in the same way with different products but it doesn't matter. It means your journal will be unique to you.


Remember the rule: this is your journal and you do it the way you want to.  There are no other rules!

Oh, sorry there IS another rule!
 Have fun!

I am so looking forward to seeing what you do over the next 30 days.  Please don't forget to link your blog post or photo of your work using the Linky on each blog post here.

Have fun.  And thank you for taking part.
