So, for all my darling readers that don’t know, I have this thing for visual journaling. I love it. Can’t get enough of it. Stay up far too late at night doing it (Yes, yes, I know. That’s what she said.). If you don’t know what a visual journal is, imagine the bastard child of a scrapbook and an inspiration board, carried to term by a surrogate diary. I’ve been making these for the last five years, and as you can tell, am a wee bit obsessed. Visual journaling allows me to put all my paper hoarding, embellishment buying, ephemera saving, mess making potential to work in a way that both invigorates my creative brain cells, and serves as a sort of self-awareness meditation at the end of a long day.
Now, I’ve featured excerpts from my journals here before, but usually only in incomplete bits and pieces. So, I thought it might be nice to share a little more of my completed work here on MissieSue, and to that end, have spent all week compiling the last six months or so of my journal pages into a e-book entitled Flotsam: Pages from My Journal. You can download a free copy of this book by clicking here, or on the photo above. I hope that this project will inspire you to carve out time for whatever creative process inspires your own joy. Please comment and let me know what you think; this is my first e-book, and I’d love for it to start conversations with other creative types. Enjoy.
Note: This e-book contains many high resolution photos. Please be patient while downloading.
