Art JourAl PAgEs
My journal style has typically been to either write about a holiday, document where I have been with evidence, or to just go off about something. For example, when I was going through cancer, I filled so many volumes, it is almost scary. I want to journal more, and when I haven't, I have told myself it is ok because that must mean I am pretty happy and have nothing to go off about. But while that felt ok to some degree, I still wanted to do more. I have bags of evidence from at least 3 big adventures I haven't even journaled. Sigh. I could continue writing about this, but I think I am starting to sound like I am in therapy or something, so I won't. : )
Anyway, I decided to incorporate some art into my writing and start making use of some of the plethora of things I have purchased to journal with. These are just some of my recent pages. I can't show them all because I still do go off about "stuff" in my journals, but these photos are ones I can share. Some of them are based off of prompts from my online class with Kelly Kilmer called A Life Made By Hand. Others are just whatever comes to me. I am getting so into this that I actually went to the studio after work one day this week and stayed there 'til almost midnight (YEA!) and only went to bed then because I had to be at work the next morning. I consider that a good thing.
