Patriotic Pride

This blog post is part of my summertime challenge series. This week the challenge is to list why you are proud of your country. For me, I am listing why I am proud to be an American. Or you can simplify it further and list the words you associate with your country. You can take part by making a list, an artwork or writing a blog post on the weekly theme and linking up with me!

List Making Prompt

For those who just like to journal, you can simply make a list of your patriotic pride. Even when I plan on doing a bit of art journaling, I always find it helpful to write out my ideas on a separate paper and then only make into the art the most compelling ideas.

Art Journal Prompt

Draw a stars on your paper and you can put a word or an idea in each star.
