I have been working slowly through this small journal that I made back in January with my good friend Lily at our DIY retreat, which I wrote about on the blog here.
I’m just about done with this little book, so I am going to share few of my favorite spreads. There are some in here that I don’t want to share, because after all this is a visual ‘journal.’ Visual journaling is such a personal, calming, and evolving practice that I love to do at the end of a busy day. There is room in here for exploring materials, themes, thoughts and feelings and that is what makes this type of journaling practice so wonderful. Not every page is social media worthy, and maybe these aren’t either…but I love them still!
If you are intrigued and would like to learn more, I am teaching a class on visual journaling on June 15 at Newburyport Art Association 9-11am. Cost is $20 for NAA members and $25 for non members. Register at their site here. This class is perfect for any level of artist. In the class, I’ll share a few tips and tricks for getting started with visual journaling and techniques I love to use as well. Plus it is really a nice morning with a bunch of other creative folks! I hope you can join me.
Ok, on to the journal! Enjoy!
