The Summer Journals.

Thursday, 31 July 2014


It's hard to believe that this little space on the internet has changed so much in the past few years. It initially begun as just a place to put my spare thoughts and occasionally some journal and artwork and quickly spiralled into so much more, who would have thought, a few years down the line it would have brought me so much joy and untold opportunities, for that I am so grateful, but now that I have a little bit of spare time on my hands I thought it would be a good time to get back into journalling. August is fast approaching, and i'd like this journal to be a culmination of things from the second half of the year. This is a bit of a personal project for me, Four years of Architecture has meant that i'm now hardwired to do everything perfectly and precisely, and i miss the freedom of just being able to create from the heart and not the brain.

My weapon of choice is this Foray Notepad from Viking. I like it because the cover is so soft, almost leather like, and the pages are easy to draw on, not too soft but not too hard, and i've also found that my ink pens have yet to bleed through the pages too which is great!

If anyone wants to join me on this little journal journey (aha!) let me know! It would be wonderful to see other people's work and if you're wondering what my work looks like, here are a couple of Vintage In My Sunday Best blog posts for your entertainment here, here and here!

  1. Totally didn't know you studied architecture
    Can't wait to see some new material as the old posts you linked were so cool


  2. I love journalling. I been wanting to take time into it because I am always so busy. Journaling forces you to be creative and I always seem to impress myself when I read back on it. I always think that I am not creative and try to challenge myself to be more of it. Great got me thinking lol!

  3. i recently started journalling and i wrote a post on it on my blog(in cas you'll like to see it} I like your journal, practical.

  4. I haven't kept a journal and a poetry book since I was in college and I miss it so much, and whenever I started again I just never kept it up :( this sounds like a great project though, good luck with it! :) Maybe I'll give it a go too once uni is out the way
