I love this project - and you have some great page ideas - you should start a journal along - it seems so many people on here have always wanted to journal but need a little inspiration - I like the sections like things to do to keep...  the sticker page ... the list of things you have learned ... very cool...

Thanks everyone for all your beautiful comments!! I wish I could reply to them all!

I so love arty journals though I have yet to make one.  You certainly provide incentive.
Go for it. I never thought I'd be able to make one, and I've proved myself wrong.
I love flicking back through the pages and see all the things that have happened so far this year.

Your journal is very inspiring and absolutely beautiful! I made my current journal two years ago this month with the intention of making it a journal-art hybrid type thing, but so far it hasn't really worked out  Cheesy. I just might have to have two at once, one specifically for therapeutic writing, and one for truely expressing myself. Thank you so much for sharing this!
Having two journals sounds like a great idea. I find that when I do 'therapeutic writing' in my visual journal, I have to cover it up with a flap or something, because I don't like reading it when i'm not in the same kind of mood. There's a poem i wrote in my journal on the first day of the year that I covered with a flap, then tied down with three ribbons that i double-knotted, and I haven't opened it since!

You are right about the stickers too. I have been keeping the stickers out of mailings/credit card offers/book club offers, etc., lately for just such a purpose!
The more i collect them, the more i see them everywhere! The sticker page has loads more on since i took that picture a few weeks ago, because i keep finding them: on CDs, parcels that come through the post and even pasta packets. I was still collecting them in the three weeks that my journal went AWOL because I couldn't bare to throw them away anymore, and when I got it back, I stuck them all in.

PS I love the guardian.
Me too! Because I live in a studenty area they are sold for half price! I just have to make sure I don't cut things out that I haven't read yet! I saved all the free wrapping paper they gave out at christmas, and I've used it for so many backgrounds.

Oh my god, this is too damn cool. I love it! I've always wanted to have a journal like this, but I juct can't start it, because I'm affraid that it will look bad and so on. Good job Smiley
Start one! I find it really helps me express myself, even though most of the time i'm not even journalling about my feelings. Like if I've had a bad day, I don't tend to write about it, but I might make a collage or colour things in, in dark colour.
It doesn't matter if it looks bad - you should see all the pages i didn't post. And i find that if you make layers you can make anything look good. I have a "thank you, you're welcome" page where I write a small message to someone who's helped me, and a message from someone i've helped. And it looks really stupid, But I've made some pictures into flaps and it's looking a bit better.
I also tend to put tracing paper on top of any writing that's messy, because it makes it look better.

I want to say since my first post I have already started journaling again when I was "blessed" with a super boring meeting at work. You gave me sooo many great ideas!! Thanks so much for the inspiration! I hope you continue to fill up your page where you've helped someone. You should include us (definitely me!)!!

I find that when I do 'therapeutic writing' in my visual journal, I have to cover it up with a flap or something, because I don't like reading it when i'm not in the same kind of mood.

And I love this idea...wish I'd just gone 3-D and done it months ago. Sigh. Better late than never!
