Inspiration Journal


More reminiscing over my art journals from a few years back. Looking for inspiration. 
I bought a pencil the other day that glides over paper.  It is wonderful to use. 
Next project is to find the time....

  1. This is so cool, Jeanne! I do the same thing, only in my case it's for writing inspiration. I jot down words, ideas, sketches, and glue cuttings,ephemera,etc on the left pages of a notebook, and do my writing on the right pages (writing on every other line). I get those notebooks with the pockets so i can tuck away larger items like brochures, articles, letters, etc. I just love your art journals, Jeanne. Have you ever read Julia Cameron's The Artist's Way? If you're feeling a bit blocked creatively, this book might help you. Here's her website: http://www.theartistsway.com/

  2. Thank you for your comment Lizzy. I have read The Artists Way and loved the book. It has been some years since I read it. It was around the time I created the journals.

    I thought blogging would be another way of creating a journal but it not quite the same. I love it but there is nothing like working with your hands. It is such a great feeling to pick up a journal ,look and ponder. I like your idea of visual on one side and writing on the other. A great solution! There is always that tricky business of which journal. It has to be just the right one. It almost acts as a force in itself....drawing you in.

    Lots to think about...a perfect day for it. So nice of you to stop by. In the meantime, I am off to look at the website for a 'refresher' course :)

    Have a wonderful day!

  3. Fantastic journal! I love to draw, dream and design whatever my mind will allow me to. I think it is wonderful to be able to go back and see what you were thinking in the past and compare it to now. Thanks for sharing!

  4. I love these and wish I had done it when I did have the time! Now time runs away from me but every once and a while, I get the itch to paint something ... sigh ... a girl can dream, right?

  5. What a lovely post and great "Inspiration Journal" ! I love journals, thoughts of the day, projects for tomorrow, pictures or drawings of yesterday, just anything that I feel like keeping close for a second look. I am really enjoying looking at your pictures and reading you. Thank you Jeanne.
