That said, this journal is probably my favourite art journal. It started life as a simple spiral-bound brown-paper notebook that I bought at my local Michaels and I tried to maintain its somewhat rustic look, with more muted colours and simpler, single-layer pages. I feel that the pages in this journal really express my personal style and philosophy better than any of my previous journals - as though in this journal, I finally "arrived." My favourite page spread in this journal is titled "The Way North" and it is part collage, part acrylic paint background. The design is simple, but as the idea of north and the imagery of mountains have been themes that have occurred repeatedly in my writing (if not so much in my visual art), this page really expresses a lot of who I am. It's one of my favourite page spreads ever.
What images speak to you? What ideas do you keep returning to in your written or visual journals?
