NaNoJouMo stand for National Non-Stop Journaling Month. It is hosted by Dawn DeVries Sokol. This year’s theme is Song Titles. Every day Dawn posts a song title for us to use as a prompt for a journal page. Here are my first three pages.  (click images to enlarge)

On Day 1, I used an exclusive StencilGirl Club stencil, designed by Jessica Sporn.

For Day 2, I made the background out of a monoprint I had printed onto deli paper. The figure is a stencil from StencilGirl Products, also designed by Jessica Sporn.

On Day 3, I used a stencil that had this bird on it that I knew would make an awesome phoenix. What else would I want to be if I could fly?

Even though I have labeled these by day, I actually made all of them yesterday. I didn’t find out about the challenge until Saturday evening and after reading the song title prompts, it didn’t take me long to come up with these ideas. Sometimes the inspiration comes really fast, like these three. Other times, not so much!

This challenge has given me another creative push to journal daily. I can take the prompts in any direction I choose. I’m sure that some of the new stenciling techniques that I’m learning in Stencil Play will show up here!

I hope you will follow the music with me!

P.S. I know that I have a lot of links in this post. I believe in giving credit where credit is due. I also want you to be able to easily find anything that may inspire you from my posts.

    Looks like you are into every group online! I love your journal pages and the stencil class looks fun, how in the world do you keep up?

      Thanks, Jackie! Yeah, I’m in several online groups right now. How do I keep up? I don’t! I’m quite behind in some, barely keeping up in others. I just have to choose what calls to me the most at the time. At least BoD is on hiatus until January. That gives me more time to concentrate on other groups.

    Raine, when I click on the links you’ve given for nanojoumo and Dawn I just get a black page and the message ‘This Domain has not been claimed’. I’ve tried to access her from google and get the same thing. ??
    Liking all your pages 🙂

      Thanks, Sue. I just checked the links and got the same result. I have no idea what happened. I accessed it this morning for the new prompt. Thanks for pointing this out. I removed the links from my blog until I’m able to find working links.I’m glad you like my pages.
