Journaling Bliss

Lately as my busy schedule allows me, my preferred art of choice has been journaling and includes art journaling.  Before the summer begun, I purchased a Midori Travelers Notebook.

There are quite a few videos out there showing how to start and maintain one. I saw one and immediately fell in love.  In this journal, I can incorporate some of my scrapbooking skills and also practice any art skills that I'm trying to master. I can also use my die-cuts that I've cut using my favorite die-cut machine.

I am also attempting to follow the Documented Life art journaling prompts.  It is a day-to-day or month-to-month journaling which consists of writing and such art forms as painting, drawing and doodling. I like it because it is flexible at best.  I can do a little on some days or a lot on other days(i.e. weekends).  I also like the fact that the type of embellishments for these journals are endless.
Recently, I created some flowers to send in happy mail packages and also to grace some of my pages. These are so easy to make once you get the concept down.  I use various materials, from old book pages, deli paper and even discarded contact paper backing. Below are some examples:

Here are some pages from my DLP(documented life planner):

Why not start your own journaling journey and I bet you will be surprised how your creativity will soar.


  1. So wonderful! Embrace your art. So nice that it is easy to carry around.

  2. Wonderful, I am going to share with my daughter.

  3. I love that you've taken several trends and made them your own! Very nice!

  4. Love this idea! I've seen the Midori notebooks used as primarily as planners. Using it to journal your artistic processes is such a great idea! Really enjoyed seeing the pages you've created so far!

  5. This is great. I am a big fan of any type of journaling. Again, great job!
