visual diary // creative journaling
I'm finally home after lots of traveling these past few weeks (I've got some photos that I'll share in another post!). I've got a sort-of DIY for you today. I have always wished I was the type of person who keeps a daily, written diary, but I've never managed to keep up with one. I have dozens of empty notebooks that I bought in the hopes that they would motivate me to start writing, but they usually ended up unused in a desk drawer.
So I recently pulled out one of these empty notebooks and decided to take a different approach to journaling, which I can't believe I never thought of doing before! I started a visual diary, because I feel more creative putting images and words together than just writing in paragraphs.
I started my diary by printing out some images from Pinterest and collaging them on the first few pages. I decided this diary is going to be for both documenting my life (I'll print some of my own photos and glue them in with captions) and just for collecting images that inspire me.
My first page was full of style inspiration (most of my photos are from this board).
On the second page I put together some photos of places I want to travel (and I loved the pastel tones in all of them!).
I've only done the first two pages of my visual diary, but just doing those has inspired me to keep filling it up!
Do you have any tips for journaling or ideas for some visual diary pages? I'd love to hear!
