Some days..

Sea of Words..

Some days I just feel like an adventure on a high sea of beautiful words and thoughts.

never enough pens

Im slowly filling my pencil case with an assortment of pens, all types of tips, and colours. I think its all time you guys went pen shopping! There is a world out there for you to go nuts over! A journal keeper always has several pens lying at the bottom of their bags ready for that stolen moment where we can escape into the paper pages of our history.

I urge you once a week to buy a new pen, and never the same pen as the week before (unless you have no ink left ) explore the pen world in your journal.

Now I must go and use the two new pens I aquired today during the fortnightly food shopping!

follow your bliss

The pull of my moleskine called me today, so I sat and coloured using nothing but budget crayons, a white gel pen, black sharpie and some crappy yellow paint, but Im loving just sitting in my own bliss, Ive spent days watching girls art journal, draw, paint and just create. Its refreshing.
With love from my crayons and I
follow your bliss

journals are apart of you...

When you start a journal, it becomes apart of you..every aspect of you, heres something to think about
Imge found via Weheartit
words to live by, if you didnt write it down, it didnt happen. just little sentences, notes, one words....even photographs..

above is a stunning unconventional travel journal, put together with pages of various places, photographs, bound using two rings like a binder.

To create this look, all you need are your pages, two rings which you can usually pick up from a office supply store, or newsagent for next to nothing and a hole punch.
A simple and yet elegant way to create a journal from scratch.

To leave you with these delishiously chunky journals, I can image this girl wrote everything down, and what a stunning sight that would be.

keep your journal by your side, and if you dont write it down
it didnt happen.

love C & S

P.s please keep checking back to see the new content going up in the side bar. Collating and sorting takes C a little while since shes doing a million things a day!
check out the current favourite in the links section! great videos on art journalling.

Collage Art inside your Journal.

- Image found via Flickr
Sometimes, its easier to put your feeling down on paper in the form of pictures, alot of my journals are picture ridden from my art journal...

to my personal journal, every little collage is a story of mine told in a way other than words...

sink into the art.

revive the pages of my soul

when you create a journal from something odd and forgotten, it gives it a new purpose. Creating each page from the bottom up, inking my own life onto those pages...its been an experience Ill never want to let go.

Take some time, to build a journal from something journal pages are old christmas cards.
remade to be one of my favourite spaces to write in.

Journal Keeper love for this week - The moleskine.
Stunning artist journal from The Last Door

open your journal and fill it bit by bit.
