Q&A a Day For Creatives by Potter Style

I love my Q&A a Day journal, and as a creative/artsy person I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this edition!

This journal follows the same premise as the original, but you are to answer the questions and prompts with drawings instead of words.

The book itself is paperback, and constructed with decent (though not great) quality pages. As a four year journal, each page is divided into five sections: the section with the date and prompt, then four square sections (one for each year of the journal) in which to create your answers to the questions and prompts.

Answering in images rather than words is a sure way to make you think creatively. A sample of prompts/questions from the book:

Draw the bridge that will take you where you need to go.
Today you’re giving out a candy heart to everyone you meet. Illustrate the heart and its slogan.
Draw a picture frame. Now what’s inside it?
What is hiding in the shadows?
Create a rendering of a street sign you saw today.
What does boiling water look like?
What is something in your home that you regret purchasing?

This is such a fun concept for a journal, and I can’t wait to get started! I do wish the pages were a bit heavier – it is definitely suited to using pencils, light ink, or even crayon but would not be good for markers, heavier inks or paint if you wanted to use those. Of course there is nothing stopping you from using the book for the prompts then creating your answers in a dedicated art pad or on canvas etc. This would be a fantastic gift for anyone who enjoys drawing and journaling!
