The Documented Life Project: Have you joined in?

I have just found an amazing website about an artistic, creative project called the "Documented Life ". Each week you are provided with a journalling prompt challenge. On January First 2014, which was challenge one, you had to photograph, sketch, paint or incorporate your front door.

I have only just started, and although you can start from whatever week you first found out about the project I want the full year !! So i think I can catch up if I do two pages a week at least.

The creators of the project are using a Moleskine planner/diary, but I am using my limited edition blank paged Minnie Mouse journal as I wanted to use it for something to keep and this seems just the project!

They have a facebook group, if you are interested in the project why not join it?

Information about the group of artists who started this project is at this link.

I think this would be a great addition to my goal to be positive this year!  So I have joined their facebook group and have started the challenges!

(I have so many to catch up on considering it is already the end of March!)


These are the weekly challenges they have listed so far:


  1. January 1, 2014 - Week One - Photograph, sketch, paint or incorporate your front door.
