I have a lot of thoughts running around in my head ( about a lot of subjects) and I would like to write them down.Kinda like a journal but just a lot of ramblings probably.But how does one start????Does anyone have any ideas on how to begin journaling?This wouldn't be just one subject but many.So it probably wouldn't make any sense to anyone that read it.So in other words help!!!!!Thanks everyone  Smiley

IMO a journal can be anything that YOU want it to be. Because really journaling is something you do for just for yourself (or sometimes to preserve memories for future generations). Personally I cannot keep a journal that is like a daily diary where I record things about my day, the weather, the kids, etc. It just doesn't work for me. Instead my journal is a mix or doodling, collage, painting, photos, and words.  I journal in a book that has watercolor paper in it so it can take a lot of different types of "abuse" such as paint. It may not make sense to anyone else that sees it but I could care less. To me it makes sense. So my advice would be get some type of book or a collection of papers you like and just do it. Don't think about it. Thinking is overrated.  Wink

I've kept a journal for a few years. Echo what beforetherainsaid. My journals are pretty much me spurging on the page...in words, sketches, doodles, paint etc etc. I love it. And yeah, it would make no sense to anyone else. But thats kinda the point for me...its an outlet for stuff that can't really be communicated.

As regards starting, yeah, just do it. Perhaps it might be good to start with WHY you want to journal, what appeals about it... that was my first page and was pretty good to just get me to think and write...

Good luck, enjoy it. xx

i have a book just like that. just find a book you realy like that inspires you to use it.....and when you get one of those randon thoughts.....jot it down.

i love personal swaps. i'm looking to swap my art or paper crafts for some re-usable fabric snack bags, fabric sandwich wraps, fabric paper towels, glass pendants, ephemera, or art books.
