Journaling with Teresa McFayden

I've long wanted to find a form of art journaling that I could do on a regular basis. I think maybe I've found it! I totally lost myself putting together these pages together.

I spent a few hours today prepping and painting pages that I can journal and doodle on while I have my morning coffee. I have to say the prep work was much fun! I finished several sets in no time.

Here's a closer look at the left page - yes, I put the holes on the wrong side, but I'll work that out with some ribbon or something once I do a title page. I used two white pens, one a uni-ball signo and the other an Inkssentials. Both worked well.

A closer look at my second page. Such fun!!

I have a question for you - I journal first thing in the morning about the previous day, because obviously, not much has happened that early! Do I date it the day it happened, the previous day, or do I date it the day that I journal it, the day after it happens?

I can't wait to see what Teresa has in store for us tomorrow.

Wow, looks great already and it's only day one!

Hmmm...if it were me, I would put the date it happened at the top and then sign my name or initials with the date I wrote it at the bottom (tiny).

Clearly I need one or both of those pens! It's so hard to find a white one that's opaque on dark surfaces.
