Journal Journey (Part V)
[inspired by The Evolution of a Journal Keeper]
These pages are from my “hybrid journal” that I mentioned in my last post, which has the awesome Erte piece on the cover that I’d been saving up. I used this journal from around March 2011 until I moved to Liverpool in September of the same year. I didn’t complete the journal, but it was at bursting point and is currently held together by a hairband haha. This journal has a lot of really personal writing in it, which is why I’m not sharing it completely. As mentioned already, I’d already shared a few of my favourite pages from it (1 2 3 4 5 6) and I was happy with how a lot of the visual stuff turned out.
Just before I left for Liverpool I also took part in Connie Hozvicka’s Total Alignment, which was kind of like the process of art journaling but on a bigger scale. I managed to do three “fearless” canvases before I left home:
#1: Opening the Heart Center
The third one was of a planet, but I remember thinking it was awful and now I can’t find a photo of it anywhere. Probably for the best!
It wasn’t really until my “Liverpool journal” that I started to ditch having pages full of writing. I’ve already posted quite a bit from that journal, since it was the first one that really turned out the way I wanted (see: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35).
I’ll see if I can find any more I want to share from that journal in the next part, but those are my favourite pages.
