 I was leafing through my old journals yesterday wondering why and when I stopped doing it. I will start keeping my days again next week. This is my favorite brand of blank journals in case you were wondering :) I own several in different colors and formats. The weight of the paper is really good for watercolor & collage.

They are beautiful. I keep journals too but I tend to write more and draw less and only in black and white. I love colors so it's strange that my journals don't have any. I too stopped for a while with no apparent reason, but know I'm back at writing again!

These are absolutely beautiful! I love keeping a creative journal but I do suffer from not investing in a decent journal, so I end up shying away from heavy mediums like paint. I'll definitely take a look at the Dick Blicks =)

Geninne - I first saw your journals in Flickr a few years ago. They are so wonderful. After seeing your pages, they inspired me to pick up my pencil and sketchbook journal too. Your artwork has encouraged my heart in more ways than I could express. I especially admire how you include Bible verses in your pages. Thank you for being so generous and sharing your gift to the world. xoxo

when you were thinking about entering this world, I do believe God thought about it and decided to grace you with an incredible amount of talent so that you could share it with the rest of the world. I would be envious, but I'm not; I'm ever grateful that my path has crossed with yours, so that I can be inspired and amazed and all of the things that true beauty does to one's heart and soul. and I also believe He was thinking the same thing when your son came into being... xo

These pages are so inspiring Geninne! Thank you for sharing these with us. I was wondering how do you decide what pictures to draw or paste especially when you prepare your pages in advance!
I do the writing in this format in my journal, thanks to you, but the "decorating/art" part is sorely lacking!

Geninne; it is an unusually rainy spring night here in Cape Town and 3h30 in the morning. I take the best pleasure now, in my insomniac state to gain inspiration from you. Again. Looking at your blog entry "Journaling the Days" leaves me in awe of the simple but beautiful things you bring into your daily life. How you look around you and see true beauty in everything and then put it down on paper so we can see the beauty through your eyes.

Thank you for sharing all of that with us. Thank you for the inspiration that you are for us.

Beautiful Art, Geninne! No I'm feeling guilty that I only post on my own art blog about once a month. I love that you also show what tools you use. I do a cut paper art and I should post a how to and tools and things like that. Very inspiring, thank you!
