an ART journal/a writing journal

So I used to just have words in my journals.
then I discovered that if I made some art, played around, did some collage first, then wrote - the words reached deeper in - instead of just shopping lists and gripe lists and what I did today lists, I got to the authentic voice I had hoped for all along.
and sometimes, it is just about pictures.
drawings or collage images I cut out and paste in.
but even then, I have found the words, when honored on pages with interesting images, somehow have more life and meaning.
and you can even make your lettering decorative.
make sure you have juicy markers, make some bumpy lines and fill them in.
I love for the words to be as interesting as the images:
