Anti Journal

Social Experiment

The prompt I used this week was to send a message to my friends:-
What are you thinking right now? This is a social experiment for my Anti Journal
And then I was to record the responses. I sent my message via Facebook and waited to see if anyone would respond. Well the response was magnificent, and much more than I had dared to hope I would get. 
I ended up with two A4 sheets printed out in a small font to fit the whole conversation on, (saving on printer ink dontcha know), otherwise it was four pages of text. 
I then wrote out in smallish print, as much as I could to fill both my journal pages, taking over the next prompt, 'Highlighter Pens' page too.

I had the idea to use highlighter pens to highlight the end of each response and to respect privacy I have used only initials of respondents, except my own. Since I took this photo I have stuck a clear envelope onto one of the pages here and inserted the two printed sheets showing the full conversation.
I have already expressed my thanks, but would like to say again, a BIG thank you to all my Facebook friends who responded and took part.

Karen and Carolyn will be showing their latest, Wreck this Journal, pages today/tomorrow, so I shall be visiting them too. Feel free to follow along.

Thanks for visiting and until next time, take care won't you {{Hugs}} :o) Mo x

  12. This is wonderful, Mo. And your use of the colorful highlighters made the pages so colorful. I had to enlarge the pages and read the responses. I can see why you were pleased with the many reactions you got. This was wonderful and colorful, too.
