My Latest Obsession ~ Visual Journaling

I’ve journaled as far back as I can remember, but never in this way.

I’m a writer ~ and very strictly a writer.  I hardly ever venture into the visual world of colors, painting, or sketching.  I can describe these things in writing, but seldom do I partake in them actually.butterfly-2978576_1920

And just one day I ran into a picture on Instagram of a beautifully created journal.  It was like a mix of collage and writing, and I fell in love!  I had to try it.

So I began to put pictures together, imitating what I saw, and found that it was a very relaxing experience.  Not only that, the results were beautiful to me 💕

I grabbed a few stickers and magazines I had laying around, and I let my creativity go.

I kept experimenting, then began to write.  It’s definitely a different look than what I’m used to, but I really like it.

And now I finally understand the hidden pleasure in this:

Now as the snow falls outside my window and Sarah McLachlan sings from my speakers, I sit on my floor (really, roll around) and immerse myself deeper into journaling.

Take care,
