Creative Journaling: Pocket Size Edition

Instagram can really provide lots of beautiful inspiration, and the field of creative journaling is not exempt. I really love looking at other people’s journaling pages, and for some time I was hesitant to try it on my own. I just mostly did haphazard layouts without an overall theme to the page, and attached my ephemera randomly. This week I decided to try out layouts with specific themes, in my pocket sized journal (Alunsina Graph insert).

Today's journal spread, before the ink.

My first two attempts took advantage of two of my newest washi tapes of envelopes and tickets. It’s basically just a series of different prints of envelopes and tickets, and I cut them up individually and interspersed them throughout the page.

At some point I also incorporated some kawaii elements such as this adorable anime-ish sticker which served as the focal point of the layout.

In my latest vacation I printed out some photos and attempted a bit of scrapbooking. I find it hilarious that I journaled about my journal in my journal.

I really enjoyed this little experiment, and I think I will continue doing themed spreads and scrapbook photos. I am planning to incorporate other techniques such as brush calligraphy and mixed media.
