So after being inspired by many of the visual journals on here, I decided to make my own. And so far I have absolutely loved using it Smiley A lot of my ideas are influenced by others on here, so if you see an idea I used and want credit don't hesitate to ask for credit.
So I stared with a mix of lined and computer paper and i sewed it all together using embroidery thread.



And here's a lovely shot of my algebra textbook actually being of some kind of use to me he he Wink



I created the cover by using a top to a gift box and then I covered it with scrapbook paper. It didn't really fit, but i think the white on the edges is kinda nice. Then I posted envelopes in the front so i can have some kind of storage



and a (blurry) close up of the Eiffel Tower



And here are some examples of pages I've done



Here I write a word that kinda sums up the day and what I'm looking forward to (hehe it's not exactly finished)


I have A LOT of quotes in here, probably about 10-15 as of now.





I borrowed this idea from someone





This one I also borrowed from someone else Smiley

I like the variety of page types you have in there.   Smiley I use a lot of quotes in my journal as well.

Rachael Yamagata!! Do it! Check her out. Lenka was a little underwhelming in my opinion but she has a great voice. I wonder if she has another cd out yet?
