Insider Tips: Quiz Questions
I found this in a magazine I was perusing for house stuff. I think it was in HouseBeautiful, which, by the way, I got a stellar deal on. I got a subscription to Country Home magazine and for $1 more, I added a year of House Beautiful. Considering I rarely find anything in it I use, $1 was the perfect price.
At first, I thought I would use all of the questions on a layout with the answers, but I quickly found that most didn't really speak to me. So, I chose three and used them on the layout here:
For this layout, I painted over the pencil paper in blank canvas by Claudine Hellmuth. I then typed the 3 quiz question on the envelopes and hand-wrote my answers.
The question that really drew me into this piece of inspiration was, "What color was your favorite crayon as a child?" I instantly knew the answer. I used to spend hours just looking at my crayons and coming up with color combinations. The one that was in every configuration was always "periwinkle." I don't think I ever actually used the periwinkle crayon because I didn't want to mess up it's perfection. Sea Foam was my second favorite and I used it a lot, though. :)
Many times, I'm stumped for journaling or layout ideas. Most magazines have at least one quiz section or something similar to the idea above, so next time you need some mojo, look no further than the magazine on your coffee table.
