If you're a tween and you've found 12:34, you're looking for something a little different than what many kid craft sites have to offer; toilet paper roll crafts might not seem as cool as they once did and perhaps you're looking to try your hand at something with a little more style. At 12:34, we hope to bridge the gap between projects for little kids and projects geared towards teenagers and adults. We try our hand at art, crafting, stamping - if we think it's cool - we'll try it. Thanks for dropping by! N&K

Week 5 - Art Journal Prompt

Once you have a background page made and dried, you are ready to do some journaling!
Journaling can be a picture, a quote, a story, or a collage of different things - the great thing about it...no rules! Just create.
If you don't have an idea of your own and you need a jumping off point how about recording a memory in your art journal. I used items, such as dress forms and a sewing machine to share simple memories from my younger days. You only need a few sentences to remind you what connects the item to the memory. Maybe it's a sticker of a butterfly that makes you remember a story from last spring...whatever it is...however big or small the idea, record it. Don't worry if it turns out awful, it's okay to make mistakes and definitely don't worry if it turns out awesome and you wish you could hang it on the wall...simply consider it a rough copy to the masterpiece you'll make next.
