Visual Journaling

Thanks to hogret on deviantART for the picture!

I was at Barnes and Noble the other day... I always go straight to the art section. I found some books!! The Journal Junkies Workshop is a great book for inspiration, ideas, tips, and tricks on how to create a beautiful visual journal. I was really interested in it because I don't really like to write that much. I would much rather paint or draw (even if I'm not that great at it). I've just started. Right now, my first page just looks like a mash up of different magazine clippings, words I wanted to get out, doodles, and neat splatters I created.

I also found a book called Water Paper Paint. It too gives tips, tricks and ideas for creating. However, this is mainly watercolor and mixed media, but it can definitely be employed in a visual journal... which is EXACTLY what I plan to do!

I'm so excited and can't wait to start this stuff!!!!
