This months crusade on Michelle Ward’s GPP Street Team is about journaling and writing on your pages, using different writing styles. The writing has always come pretty easy to me. I haven’t been writing that much lately, I used to journal every day. When I was studying at uni (English and Writing) I wrote reams of paper.
When we had pregancy problems and we were grieving the deaths of our sons – I wrote – I didn’t know what else to do, so I wrote and I wrote and I wrote. Some of it I have g0ne back and read again, some of it has never seen the light of day – but it has served its purpose. It was therapy.
I wrote and I created artwork – it has only been recently that I have discovered art journaling and begun to bring my writing and art together. I find it difficult to limit my writing and will write all over the page.
One of my favourite journals at the moment (yes, I have several on the go at once!) is my zentangle journal. While I was in Melbourne I bought a new copic multiliner sp pen that can be refilled and the nibs can be replaced – its a great pen for doodling. I just need to get a couple with different sized nibs.
So what are you waiting for, check out the crusades and get journaling!
