"How many places do you journal each day? Meaning if you have a variety of art journals do you repeat things in each one, or do you choose a journal, and skip from one to another?"
Right now, I have only two main journals I am working in daily - My daily writing/idea journal, and my Book of Days.
The format for my daily writing/idea journal changes all the time. I've used regular lined diaries, smashbooks, and handmade books. I love variety. It makes writing more fun! My Big Grid Journal currently serves as my daily writing/idea book. I usually record the day's events and the weather, right after I wake from my nap. It helps me warm up for the evening's creative project. Along with being a daily diary, it also holds any writing assignments/prompts for workshops that I'm taking. I can work out ideas, and paste photos of things that inspire me in it. Here's an example of a recent spread that I haven't shared yet.
My Book of Days is my art journal. It is the one that I paint and get messy in. The format will change a little bit, but it's always made of sturdy pages that can take paint and other wet media. I work in it most every weekday evening. I use it for all of my different workshop-inspired pages, as well as just experimenting and playing. I'm on Volume 4 for 2013. Here's the current one I'm working in...
I reserve the weekends for working on Project Life, and other unfinished projects, like travel journals from previous trips. I find that taking a break from art journaling on the weekends, makes it fresh and fun again come Monday!
I have tried having different journals for every workshop I am taking, and sometimes that is really fun! Lately however, I most enjoy doing it this way. It keeps my head from getting jumbled up with too many choices, and I get to see my journals fill up faster when I only have two!
I hope this is helpful! Please feel free to ask any questions in the comments section and I will do my best to answer them. The most important thing to remember is to do what works for you!
