More Journal Pages to Share

A calendar art journal helps to chronicle art work, activities and books read each month.

Travel journals remind me of where I've been and what I experienced on a trip- seeing a page brings back memories that fill my senses. This is a map of a day spent in Teotitlán del Valle near Oaxaca, Mexico.
Adding wallet-size photos to journal pages adds color and a sense of place. I used to get these prints made at a local drug store from my camera memory card. Now, I use my Pogo printer.

Here's an example of using my idea book to explore a new project and generate ideas.

Making the journals is as much fun as keeping a journal. The one above is one I made taking "Remains of the Day" shabby journal online class with Mary Ann Moss. Check out Teesha's blog to see how to make the fabric pillow journal below.
Another journal I keep is my blog to record and share my art and travel experiences. Check it out Here.

Love your journals!! I love journaling especially when I go buck wild with color and write my feelings bold on paper. Love what you did with Journal cover. When I travel I too love to bring a book my color set and paint and write away by the beach or a cafe drinking tea or wine and feel myself enjoying the moment of bliss!
