Art Journal BINGO

I am having a lucky streak right now, winning some very fun giveaways from my blogging friends. 

From Tammy, at Daisy Yellow, I won a set of her new Art Journal prompt cards!

Each one is about the size of a business card, and re-creates a BINGO card of art journaling prompts that can be combined in a multitude of ways. 

To "play," you just select a word or prompt from each column, and then combine them to create a uniquely inspired art journal page.

For example, on the first card pictured here, I might choose B2 I5 N4 G2 O4.  Then I have the following ideas to work with on my page:  path, summer, play, yellow, and gift.  That gives me a color scheme, a central image, and a theme, and even suggests some personal experience stories that I might pull from to illustrate on my page. 

Tammy sent the prompt cards in a painted envelope that is the pefect petite size to affix right into my art journal so that the BINGO cards are available for inspiration at any time.

If you would like to purchase art journal BINGO cards for your own use, check out Tammy's blog post about them, and follow her links to buy some for yourself (or a friend!).

Enjoy!

I bought some of these and I love them! I am gearing up to have an art journaling year, and these are going to be really helpful. And they're pretty! You did a much better job of explaining them on your blog than I did!
