I have decided, since finally having a vacation, to start a visual journal.  Now I have hesitated to do journaling as it is hard for me to put words down on paper- I have always been such a visual person- but recently have seen artists just doing 'artwork.'  I loved this concept!  So I am trying to complete a spread a day in a small moleskin journal and posting most of the results on my Pinterest site (search my name and it should come up.)  The above piece is called, 'Harbinger', as I am thinking about the trees changing already, and sadly, a small elm tree was removed yesterday from our tree lawn by the city due to disease. 

I have a large container of collage scraps and an old dictionary I use for prompts, as well as Koh-I-Noor watercolor pencils and a graphite pencil for entries. Finally, I spray the page with a matte sealer.  I will try to post more frequently!~Lou


  1. What a lovely spread and beautiful beginning to a journal. I've just started journaling, too (very different style) and will have to put together a post.

  2. I love your journaling techniques just beautiful!!!
