I am often asked how to journal. Journals can be kept in any way you choose. You can write in them, sketch in them, add photos, paint in them, do a collage, paste ephemera in them in other words just about do anything in them! There is no certain “look” or style in journaling. There is no blueprint that must be followed, no right or wrong way to keep a journal. There are no rules because they are a creative space and if you tie up a creative space in too many rules it quickly becomes a non-creative space. In this video I share some of the ways I have kept a journal from the early ‘diary’ years to recent page spreads.
The main thing I want to say is that no matter what you do it’s all OK – if you feel comfortable writing – do so, if you like mucking about with art materials – do so, if you like sketching – do so. Everyone of us is unique and every journal reflects that uniqueness.
