This page started with a digital collage.
The image on the left is the collage - I printed it out and added it to my journal.
Then, the words.
I usually add color to help create mood.
and I love to let the words have beauty, shape, pleasing scale and color.
Juicy markers are so essential for me to enjoy the journaling process.
I am a marker junkie.
and a color junkie.
and a shape and image junkie.
Okay - I love making messes.
and although I want the words to be authentic and mined directly from my subconscious intuitive right brain, I do notice that when I slow down and write with care, I love the way the words look.
and hopefully, loving the way they look makes me like what they say.
and even if I don't like what they say - I have honored the words I write with color and shape and design.
I really love alternating lines of large and small writing, and then adding color to the words.
and I do think creative journaling needs to be about honoring the effort and time we put into this process.
making it pleasing.
Yes, even the MESS can be pleasing!
Organized Chaos - sort of like my life.
Happy Journaling!
