The first few pages of my brand spanking new journal inspired by the class I have just taken with the amazing Kirsty Wiseman
Please be warned,
this is a photo heavy post and the journalling is real and sometimes personal, if you don't like that kind of honesty - please look away now !
Front cover of the Moleskine
Inner of front cover, with glassine pocket and journalling tag, the tag just gives brief details of when I started the journal and why.
Page one - all about me
Page two - body parts
Page three - clothes
Page four - hair
Page five - skin
Page six - my mind ( a scary place sometimes !) - on a good day
Page seven - My mind - on a bad day
Page eight - my heart
Page nine - love
I made a start on the cover and first page on wednesday, the rest was done yesterday during my day off. The nicest thing about doing it all yesterday was that Neil had the day off also and had to work on a training manual for work, so we shared the desk all day, each time he took a break he kept going through my journal and commenting, generally taking a genuine interest, adding bits for me and I think he quite enjoyed watching me play, although there was a fair bit of eyebrow raising too ! He did almost get an ASBO though when he said my handwriting was like me, nothing wrong with that you might say, until you find out why it resembles me - he said it was all very rounded !!!!!!! For someone who doesn't 'get' atc's or tags ( in fact I think he thinks they are completely pointless) it was good to see him taking an interest in the journal.
Kirsty has opened up the class and I can highly recommend it to anyone thinking of taking a little foray into the world of art journalling, or even if you just want to mess with inks and paints. You can be as open or a brief as you like with the journalling and there is lots of scope to make it your own style, the video is fab and you also get a fab manual with all your need to know plus the Moleskine itself, the prompts and lots of other little bits and bobs ( and no I am not on commission lol, just excited to be part of something so fun)

Love and inky painty fingers
