Journey 5: Personal Lexicon

This week our soul journal prompt was to create a personal lexicon.  I selected certain letters of the alphabet and wrote down words that came to my mind when I read that letter.  These words are what I would consider to be my personal lexicon.  Although the prompt was to use lots of colors and pictures, I decided to challenge myself and only use black and white for the colors and only letters and doodles for the spread.  This was a fun and interesting prompt, particularly since I “see” things as black or white, yes or no.  I rarely see the grey areas in life.

I will try this prompt again in the future, this time, using all of the colors and pictures.

    Well done! I am really partial to black and white, and the combination of letterstyles punches it up…isn’t doodling the best fun?
    thanks for your kind comments on my blog!
