Once a Month Journal Project: Incorporate a Photo

Nature Journal With a Photo @handbookofnaturestudy

Once a Month Journal Project – January Idea

Incorporate a photo into your nature journal page. This can be a current photo or a photo from your archives. The important part of this page is to share the story of the photo or to describe it in as much detail as possible.

A nature journal is a record of the learning and experience of the time you spend outdoors. It doesn’t need to be too creative or pretty unless that reflects your personality. I tend to be a little more narrative in my journal. I also like lists. So, use the photo as a prompt to tell the story or to feature some aspect of what you enjoyed during our outdoor time.

I have created a Pinterest Board for journal page examples. I will label each entry with the prompt that describes it best for future reference. If you would like to contribute to the board, you will need to follow this Pinterest Board and then leave me a comment letting me know you want to be added. Important: If you contribute to the board, you need to include in your description the prompt it is featuring.

Sample: Incorporate a photo.

If you don’t include a description using one of the monthly journal prompts, I may remove it. This is not a board to post general nature journal pages. It is strictly for pages created using one of the twelve monthly prompts as part of this project.

Please note that you are not committed to make a journal each month…participate as you can and share your results to encourage others.
