Journal Prompt & Super Powers

 Meet my character able to leap large bounds, tackle all items in from of her, always plugged in and focused while still maintaining her balance.

I gave her a super power feel. I added a plug to her brain to give her energy, used bold colors, her body references a bee. They are focused and to the point! And then I added bowls like a scale in her hands with an uneven yet balanced number of balls which represent no matter how different those items, they need to be balanced as not to tip the scale and she holds the powers to balance all things.

When I created this journal page I used my super power girl as a  reminder to myself. Now for this page it was a reminder to review or check my lists daily. Focusing on my top ten items, encouraging myself to be more focused and balanced for the things I want to create in my life.

This is the full journal page minus the edges.

Here the arrow meaning is reference to keeping your chin up, looking forward, staying on point.

Here is a close up of the plug and her cartoon like saying / thought of the top ten things.

For this weeks prompt create a journal page that is cartoon like. Have your super power person focus on something of meaning to you. I hope this inspires you to create your own cartoon character. As you can see from my close ups you don't have to do a perfect drawing or painting to have that feel for your page. Maybe even look up cartoon characters to draw or paint. It can be quite fun and refreshing to have a looser paint stroke and try a different style once in awhile. I didn't name my super powered girl. If you can think of a name for her leave it in the comments section.

As you can see I am taking a week for the wedding. I will be checking my emails and taking lots of photographs in the hopes of sharing when I get home. Until next time have a wonderful and creative week ahead. Don't forget to give creating a cartoon character a chance in your journal. 

Journal Prompt: Create a cartoon like character in your journal page. Write about their super powers.

 Quotes: The superpowers often behave like two heavily armed blind men feeling their way around a room, each believing himself in mortal peril from the other, whom he assumes to have perfect vision. Henry A. Kissenger *brainy

Food For Thought: 


  1. I love your cartoon YOU and the way you have used art imagery to power your self up! I love the symbolism. Do you have a woman in your life or in history who you think is/was strong...focused....balanced? Maybe their name would be good?
    Have a wonderful time away at the wedding.

  2. Dearest sweet Theresa, she is gorgeous and i love her. :) I really enjoy reading your story too. Have a wonderful merry happy blog break and an awesome at the wedding! Love to you!
