Documented Life Project 2015 and My Word for the Year

I've decided to participate in the Documented Life Project this year.  I probably won't be able to participate every week because I'll be doing some traveling this year.  I imagine that other things will probably get in the way as well, but I plan to do what I can.  I don't have my journal yet; I've ordered it and it should arrive early next week.  Each month will have a theme, and each week there will be an art related challenge as well as a journal prompt.  January's theme is "the blank page and how to face it."  The first art challenge is book paper and the first journal prompt is "be your own goal keeper."  I already have an idea of what I want to do for my first challenge, so I am anxious to get my journal!

I've also chosen my word for this year:  ORIGINAL.  I want to do more original design in my fiber arts, so I am hoping that by choosing original for my word this year, it will focus my intention.  And since that is one of my goals, I will incorporate my word into my journal page.  I've only chosen a word once before, and it didn't really do much for me, but I'm going to try it again.  I have high hopes for the year.

Happy New Year everyone!

Excellent, Cheryl. I look forward to hearing about this project, and about how the word of the year goes for you. I've had mixed success with word of the year. It can be useful, but I don't always use it effectively.

Sounds like a good start - your choice of word and incorporating it into your first assignment. I'm almost tempted to join you if it weren't for the art journaling course of last year that waits for me to get back to. Not to mention a book I bought with similar goals. I think I have my art journaling cut out for me but I will follow your participation in this with interest.
