Visual journaling is more fun for me than written – I rarely reread my written entries but can look at the visual pages and know instantly what was happening, what I wanted to express (and things I wasn’t consciously aware of expressing!).
I also rarely reread what I write on the blog but the last post on gratitude stuck in my mind. So here’s my gratitude page AND the process I used . . . in REVERSE ORDER!
Added squiggly lines and pastels
Smeared gesso (white paint works too) over the magazine images to blur them
- I don’t like working on a white page so I spread paint on the blank page. Cut out about 20 pictures
- Focused on my “gratitude” and picked pictures that caught my attention.
- Pasted them down. Didn’t matter they got wrinkled – just adds texture!
