Gratitude Journal

Inktober Flip-through and November Gratitude Mini Journal

In this post I wanted to share my Inktober completed doodles and share my vision for November’s Gratitude Journal.

Inktober Flip Through

If you have been following my daily posts on Facebook or Instagram with my Inktober posts, I thought you might like to see a quick flip through of all 31 days and get a little insight into what I was thinking when I started doodling.

Inktober was a lot of fun and it really stretched me. Our challenge was to take the official Inktober 2020 list and doodle the word with two twists. First, find a bible verse that supported the word. I had quite the challenge to find something for Radio and Rocket, but I stretched a bit and found things that worked. Bulky was also a tough one; I decided that Whales were bulky and found a verse in Jonah that fitted nicely. Check out my video and let me know what you think.

November Gratitude Challenge

Mini Gratitude Journal

This month we are going to work on a fun and simple project of making a mini gratitude journal. We are going to take 4 pieces of paper and create some fun backgrounds. Then we’re going to cut our pages in half and create a mini book. We’re going to bind our book with thread and reflect on things that we are grateful for in the pages of our mini journal. We want to combine our doodles with a little journaling. It’s going to be fun.

FACEBOOK LIVE Wednesday 10:00 AM CT

Join us Wednesday, November 4th, 2020 at 10:00 am for ideas on how to create beautiful backgrounds and ideas on how to doodle your pages. Join us in the Sketchnote Boss Facebook Group.

Supplies for the challenge

I am going to encourage you to scrounge around your house and use what you have. Challenge yourself not to buy anything new – just use what you have.

Things you will need:

4 sheets of heavy paper – water color paper, mixed media paper, or index stock.

A black permanent pen – like a sharpie pen or micron pen.

Coloring things – acrylic paints, ink sprays, water colors, markers, colored pencils

If you’re using paint then brushes, a scraper like an old credit card

Count Your Blessings now an E-Book too

It gives you daily prompts and doodle ideas to complete your journal. The Ebook is the cover with the pink clouds. The print book is the book with the blue clouds.

    Looking forward to this months project. Thank you for sharing this with us

  2. I’ve been looking at lapbooks at YouTube. Have you ever created a lapbook?

    1. I didnt know what a lapbook was, but lapbooks and Sketchnoting go together for sure! Thanks for sharing! This just might be a future project! Your rock!

  3. I thought Connie might know about lapbooks if you didn’t. by the way, I uploaded my October video last night of the last of my doodles for your 365 Day doodle challenge if you want to see what I’ve done.
