Journal Page


I began learning to sketch so I could illuminate my journal pages, and so I've spent a good part of a year sketching and sketching (oh yes, and erasing and erasing!) LOL I've focused so much on this learning challenge that I haven't spent as much time collaging or doing daily 'glue pages', or writing as I did before I took up the pencil.

This morning, with the fog cloaking the woodlands and creating a feeling of restive coziness, I decided to try combining those things I love most on one page - sketching, writing, collaging, gluing in my journal.

I like the result and hope that with continual practice I'll get better at the combo!

What a great idea, Lin. I like the combination of sketching, photos and journaling. Keep up with your daily sketches, you'll never regret it. :)

I really like the result too Lin. That is a superb (!!!) tree. What a beautiful page you've created. Well done. :o)

Beautiful page--aren't you glad you have added sketching to your journaling? I love the fireplace sketch as well--what a special gift that fireplace is!

Lin,

These are the primary reasons I want to learn to sketch better and faster too! I need to stick with the disciple rather than wandering off to play with other mediums. Maybe it is an avoidance thing? *chuckle*

However, since I have been playing with art again, I find that my journal is being sorely neglected. :(

Lin, I love this journal page! It is so perfect with the sketching, the words and the photo's.
