~ a month to journal ~

this month has been pronounced NaNoJouMo month

which stands for National Nonstop journalling month,

& so each day of the month is designated with a new inspiration word to journal.

i was quite excited to hear about this as i have not done any art journalling seemed to be a whole palette of inspiration swirling, though i dont know if i'll be able to do all the days...
Day 1. the word was purity

my page reads, "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God"
& underneath the curtain is a symphony of starshine, the inscription above the score {which tells how the music should be played/sang}

reads {with purity}

& the inscription underneath the repeating barlines
reads {repeat endlessly}

Day 3: inspire
{day 2 didnt seem to fit next to the first so i moved it} the writing says:
Inspired by an Alannah Hill handbag,
not in my budget
but still in my dreams!

i continued chopping & changing days for the double page layout...

Day 7: compassion

defined as "to look upon someone else's needs as though they were your own"

the tag under the feather reads, "having a spare loveheart in every pocket of your soul"

Day 4: beauty

the card reads
there is beauty all around, when there's love at home

Today is a dash of the splendid{& a rowboat in the rain :) }

p.s there is plenty more days & lovely new words if you'd like to join in!!!


  1. Your journal looks lovely Chenoa! Keep on going!


  2. What beautiful pages! I love the silky curtain of day 1.

  3. Gorgeous and inspiring! I started art journaling this year so I am new to it.
