In the meantime, I'll share a little project I've been working on. A few years ago, I started a visual journal in a day-planner, having seen the idea in a book for using small visual entries to tell about your day, rather than relying only on words. I was good about keeping it up for 3 - 4 months, then missed a day here, and two days there, and before you knew it, had an entire empty week in the day planner. At that time, I threw my hands up in the air and gave up. As a perfectionist, having the empty pages meant I had not done the project "right"!
One of my daughters, while downsizing her possessions to move, passed on to me a small moleskine storyboard book. Each page is 3.5" x 5.5". A month ago, I found it again and went "aha!" This could be the solution to my empty page dilemma. With no days or dates pre-set in the book, I could miss a day or two and still have full and complete pages. I've been having fun with it, experimenting with format, and think that, for now, I have settled in with what I want to do. Take a look:
Coloured pencils will probably be my go-to medium (watercolours don't work so well on these pages), but I'm leaving myself open for a multi-media approach. I look forward to seeing this book finished, and won't worry about the occasional "missing entry".
