My Own Li'l Journal...

“You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.”
-Maya Angelou
You know that quote project I hinted at the other day... wanna see more? Well, here it is. Or at least the start of it.

Right about the same time that I chose the word, "create," to reflect on throughout 2012, I was also inspired by several art journal projects that cropped up in my blog reader (Ashley's and Emily's) and in my real-life conversations (Callie's).

For the last month, I've been saving meaningful quotes and doodling in a small square spiral-bound journal. When you put the two together, you get my own li'l journal. It's an excuse to pull out my markers and paints. There's no pressure to create the perfect page. I'm not working from front to back, but randomly choosing pages from the middle. I can't wait to see how it evolves.

I've got many more pages to go. Any favorite quotes that you've seen lately?


  1. Are all of those backgrounds your very own doodles? Love them!

    1. Yup, so far I've used Prismacolor markers, cheapo markers, and just a black pen. I can't wait to pull out my watercolors, acrylics, and maybe even some RIT dye.
