In Hindu spirituality, the Goddess Shiva (the one with the many arms) is responsible for both creation and destruction. This is sorta surprizing to me - but it really does make sense - sometimes you have to tear things apart to find something new.
Sometimes the path to something being awakened involves some sort of sacrifice or messing up of what is already there.
I know I have damaged many pages in my journal with my experimental messing about - but then, something new and interesting can emerge - something I didn't plan in advance.
"Mistakes" can be the best thing that ever happened!
So don't be scared of just messing around and trying something new.
your journal will thank you!

make a picture

since a picture is worth a thousand words - just grab some photos, or colored pens,
collage it.
maybe add some words.
maybe not:

grab those markers!

Put a bunch of smooth flowing brightly colored markers in a solid mug.
Put this mug on your desk.
Some time today - grab your journal - spread some pretty color on it using ink or charcoal, and just start writing with those juicy markers.
Let the words meander and turn here and there.
Words can add design beauty!
Have Fun!
