New online lesson: Nature journaling prompts

posted in: Nature journaling 5

In this video I show you how to use the four nature journaling prompts (I notice, I wonder, It reminds me of, It makes me feel) to spark all sorts of observations, questions, memories, ideas and feelings. These prompts can be applied to anything you find in nature, and are a great way to create a page.

This is Part seven of my free ‘Introduction to Nature Journaling’ course, aimed at the complete beginner. This episode focuses on a magnificent Macadamia tree in my backyard in subtropical Australia. Find all episodes here.

Thanks to John Muir Laws for the first three prompts, and thank you to the Queensland Trust for Nature, Citizens for Refuge Ecology and the Queensland Government for supporting the production of this video.

Copies of Take this Book for a Walk: A step-by-step guide to nature journaling keep flying out the door, and I’m very pleased to be officially launching my COVID-book-baby in Biome stores in Brisbane this December. Stay tuned for more details!

If you can’t get to these events in Brisbane, you can order Take this Book for a Walk here.

Happy nature journaling!

    Was so wonderful to hear your voice Paula. Really enjoyed your video and yes, I will take your tips with me on my next nature journalling trip. Haven’t been anywhere for months in case I run into “Rona” …its in a lot of sneaky places down this way … my mask fogs up my glasses … and too many friends are old like me and dont like to mix, just in case. Thankyou for sending this post.

      Thanks Sue, it’s always good to hear from you too. I hope you can get out and about soon, and do some nature journaling. I was lucky enough to get out in some inland Queensland woodlands the other week and it was lovely – reminded me a lot of Bimblebox. Take care, Paula
