JOURNAL IT: the series

In general, so many people struggling with journaling.

Think about it. Take any layout, you have a photo (or multiple photos), you add some embellishments to soften the page, perhaps beautiful flowers or a button… there is movement on your page, but if there are no words, you might be missing having more emotion or feeling. Now, take the same layout, then add the words: “Enjoy the Moment” on the page, it just feels different, doesn’t it? And yet, those same words could go on almost ANY page! It could describe an ordinary day at home, a fun day at the park or a day at WDW. It doesn’t necessarily have to be lots of words to be consider journaling, it can be just a simple phrase or sentiment.

So, I would like to start providing some generic ideas or quotes that might inspire you on your layouts. Sometimes we will focus on things that you can journal about on almost ANY layout, to help you put more emotion into your pages. You could use two different ways… you might use the prompt on your layout and stop right there, you may not need to journal more… Whereas other times these prompts might inspire you to write about something even deeper.
