Card Deck Journal

In a previous post I showed a picture of my card journal pouch. I found Emily's site that showed a deck of cards that are altered to be used as weekly journal pages (52 cards in a deck = 52 weeks in a year). I couldn't find her prompts (I think she started at an earlier point in time), so I am going to jump right in.
I prepped the pip side of four cards by sanding them and brushing some gesso left on my brush from another project. I set them aside to dry and later brushed what was left of some brown acrylic paint onto the dried gesso. Voila! instant background!!
Emily's prompt (the only one I could find) was "Today I am proud that..." so that is what I am using today.

This is the back, I simply wrote Week 1 and the date.

I am going to post a prompt every weekend so if you want to journal along with me, please do. Share what you have, I'd love to see your work. If you have suggestions for prompts, I'm all ears!!!
