Journaling is such an enjoyment to me. I’ve done it since I was quite young. We keep up with a few different journals around here…..
there’s mine and Handsome’s Couple Journal. It is in this book that whomever has it writes a letter or note to the other and leaves it in a place that it will be found. Then it is the other person’s turn to respond and write an entry back…and leave it to be found. We’ve poured our hearts out in this journal, argued in this journal, left love notes in this journal, shared aches and pains in this journal……it is worn and has coffee stains on the cover. It’s very special to me.
We have our family’s Christmas Journal. I shared about it here. Each Christmas everyone gets a turn at writing an entry….about what this Christmas meant to them, what stood out, etc. Whatever they want to share about the season.
Then there’s my favorite……my Art Journal. There are many ways to keep an art journal. It can be like a scrapbook and have lovely things taped and glued inside, mixed media, etc. Or, like the one I keep, it can just be written entries alongside drawings. Sometimes it is just drawings. Here are some pages from my art journal several years ago……
It’s a great place to practice art skills…sometimes I work on lines, ellipses, circles, shading while I make entries…such fun therapy. 🙂
I usually take it wherever I go….never know when the urge will strike.
I like to use my special drawing pens…and sometimes in different colors…but black is my favorite for my journal drawings.
Have you ever kept an art journal before? Do you enjoy journaling in another way??
