Journaling By 5's Challenge Session 1

Ok, right now you are scratching your head asking "What on earth is Journaling by 5's?"  Quite simply, you create a 20 page art journal in 5 sessions.  Each session is timed at 15 minutes.  There are 10 prompts.  For each session, you have 15 minutes to complete the prompts for that session on all 20 pages.  You have about 45 seconds to spend on each page.

It was not as easy as it looked as I watched one YouTube video after another.  It forces your left brain to relax and let the right brain work.  You don't have time to plan anything.  You just do it.  This exercise is to just get something down on paper.  However, after you go through all 5 sessions, you can have free play, not timed..  this lets you go and spruce things up, add things, fix things, etc.

Here is how it goes
5 sessions
10 prompts
15 minutes
20 pages

This is the Facebook group I joined

Here is a video of my first session.  I did speed some of it up, the creating part.

Thanks for watching and look for the next session.
