Journal Fodder Junkies Challenge #5: RANDOM WORDS
Challenge #5 at Journal Fodder Junkies is RANDOM WORDS and the directions are as follows:
"Grab a book or dictionary that you have close at hand, and open to a random page and point to a random word. Don’t like that word? Pick another. Not ready to be completely random? Pick a random page, and choose a word to which you are drawn."
Near my art desk I keep a collection of books that I use for the vintage text on my collages. Among them is a vintage dictionary. I randomly opened the tome and put my finger on the word...ORDERLY. Okay, that'll work. I like to maintain an orderly life; I do not like, nor do I function well in chaos. I like to know what to expect and stay one step ahead of things. I can journal about ORDERLY.
I approached the journal page by recognizing the ORDERLY ways of nature. Although we are all impatient for the coming of Spring, nature knows what it's doing and all will be revealed in time. "To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose, under Heaven."
A different approach for me this time around was in using magazine cut-outs. I happened to have a couple of magazines I had finished reading that were on their way to the recycle bin. I scooped them out and set to work.
Why not join in with the Journal Fodder Junkies...give yourself some time to play.
