I love your lunch box! I never really thought of seperating the decorating of journal pages and the actual journaling, it may be something I need to try! Thanks also for stopping by at Marchen Studios. I hope to see you come by again.
I have been carrying around a ziplock bag with pens, gel pens, colored pencils. And another one with stamps and ink. I never thought of a lunch box. I too color/decorate the pages and write on them later. Another thing I draw lots of things with plants in them, I see them while I am out and about, then go home and look them up in a plant book, the ones with line drawings are best. Then I draw them correctly to get the hang of it and then when I do my art journaling I make them the way I want them to look and the way they need to be to fit the picture and mood of the page. Makes my husband (the taurus botanist) nuts but it makes my art beautiful. I always thought I would be a writer when I grew up and love to write. What I really love is to be expressed and as we all know a picture is worth 1000 words. I really enjoy your blog.
