Not Always About Words

My journaling isn’t always about words.

Sometimes it’s about playing with colour and ink.

It is always about creative fun though.

Here I’ve had fun with ink using different techniques. I’ve not been in control of the end product and I’ve taken a chance on letting the ink form naturally, or organically on the page.

It enhances my creativity, I’m having fun and therefore I’m relaxing. It also makes my journal beautiful. And if I wanted to, I could be inspired to write about them images formed out of a type of flow. By closing the journal, one image became two. Opposites, mirrors, reflections.

The quotes on the pages do mean that the pages aren’t entirely naked of words! It’s nice to have inspirational quotes on the  page, and be reminded of the creative journey others have been on.

New Journal

This morning I began writing in a new journal, which is always exciting. Nothing beats, the crisp unwritten pages, the inspirational quotes and images inside. And of course a cup of coffee!

This journal is was a gift from Christmas back in 2016! So it is long over due to be filled with my words, and to capture my life ponderings. I love the inspiring quotes inside, and the colour images. I’m sure this will lead to a new level of inspirational writing for me. This journal really does mark the starting of a new chapter in my life.

I’m not quite off to a good start, I spilt my coffee on the pages, something I never do. I’m going to blame pregnacy clumsiness! But I’m sure this extra stain will be a good omen, and that the creativity and inspiration will flow.
