Above is the response to another challenge by @journalingyourway over on Instagram I love these, the results always end up surprising me … I had no idea of what I was really doing here. Started off with the quote from the challenge: “Shine like the stars”, and then just kept filling up the page with the oddest bits and pieces, as you can see below … but I’m pretty pleased with the end result, above.

Apart from that, I’ve been doing creative daily art and writing in my Citrus Book Bindery journal, and I am loving it. There’s something wonderful about its thickness and size, and I can splash paint around without any pressure or expectation. I now look forward to painting and then filling the pages in with creative thoughts, ideas and journal scribblings, every morning. Here are a few of those pages:

I wonder if anyone has noticed the mistake I made in one of the spreads above? Please do leave a note in the comments if you did!

Look closely at the present you are constructing. It should look like the future you are dreaming.
— Alice Walker

I found the above quote in the pages of FLOW magazine, to which I am now subscribed as it’s so beautifully inspiring … I’ll have to dedicate a whole post to it one of these days, but in the meantime pop over and have a look at it here: https://www.flowmagazine.com

I had stopped listing down, at the end of every post, the supplies that I used — and have been instead just linking to the SUPPLIES page on the website; but some lovely commentors on Instagram have mentioned that they love the fact that I list them on the post itself, so I’ll start doing that again as well. Click on the SUPPLIES tab to see all of the wonderful tools and books I use for art and journaling, and below are the ones I have used just on the pages shown in this particular blogpost!
