Free Journal Prompt " Explore, Create, Blossom"

Hello there journalers I hope this finds you well. I decided to share this journal prompt with you today showing you how I added flower cut shapes and layered them into my painted journal page. I used the flowers cut from the page and also layered the pages with the cut out flowers in the corners to balance my page. So basically I have inverted the order of the position of the flowers. I kept the pallet simple and drew in with color pencils some words around her head. The words are Create, Explore and Blossom. I used bright pastels to make the flowers and her face pop. As you can see in the close up there is quite a bit of paint layers. You never know what you will create if you explore and let yourself blossom! So I hope you make a journal page where you explore using cut out pages with flower shapes or what ever shape you like and see where it takes you. What is your favorite part of journaling?

Journal Prompt: Use cut flower shapes in your journal page. Words; Create, Explore Blossom

Food for thought:  Strathmore 90lb Mixed Media Paper is great for visual journals.


  1. Beautiful journal page! I love this color of pink and I think adding the printed paper looks fab.

  2. OMG!--beautiful journaling!! Yes, this is my favorite part of journaling--exploring and seeing what happens, and not worrying if it doesn't "turn out" right because it's for your eyes only.

  3. Great prompts and page T! I always look forward to all the layering that goes on in journaling or any piece.
    Have a great Sunday!

  4. This picture is very alluring. I really love the use of pinks and reds in it.
