Project Description

For your class project I would love you to create your very own personal Inspiration Journal or create one for a friend or family member.

Start small, choose the brochure and papers you are going to transform into your journal and snap a photo of them in their original state and upload it as the start of your project.

Create a couple of pages, just the background, take a photo and share it with us. 

Maybe pick a prompt or quote or poem, maybe just show us which one you have chosen, maybe create a journal spread and share it with us if you feel comfortable doing it. 

Where do you find inspiring images and quotes? Do you have a colour scheme? Are you going to use brush lettering or calligraphy?

Got any ideas you'd like to share with us?

Any or all of these can be steps in your project.

I would love to see your version of the Inspiration Journal (again only share what you feel comfortable with).
