Visual Journal

To start with I hope you all had a very happy Christmas and that you will have a fabulous New Year!

Throughout December I’ve been keeping a visual diary within my art journal. This means I have pasted something visual on each day of the month. I liked the Idea so I have made a book to use as a visual diary for the whole of 2014. It’s a challenge I know but I have always found writing a journal difficult so I’m prepared to see if this is any easier. Here’s a week from the month I’ve been doing.

17th Dec. News letter sent out with Christmas cards, 18th bought Christmas tree, 19th, new design, 20th Optitians, 21st a message from a parcel I received etc
