Aw, it's been 8 months since I started using my kit. It's so messy now! The contents have evolved a bit. Lightweight paper has become all-media paper. I switched brands of waterbrushes (Koi to Niji), and I added a Pentel pocket brush (black). I am SO much more comfortable with mixing colors, but have SO much more to learn! I have to admit that I am backing off a little bit recently because I am also trying to increase time for two other activities: running (jog/walk achsually) and learning Spanish. However, I do not want to lose the continuous momentum I have had for 8 months. I have 58 pages (29 front and back) filled in my all-media journal, and I love recording my memories with it.
I will be taking a trip to the Galapagos this summer, and I think I may buy a new journal (less pages though) solely for that journey to try to fill with comments, sketches, paints, and taped tickets/ephemera. The first journal I ever really completed was for the wonderful trip I took with Erin in Europe. I treasure that book so much now. I can't write a diary for the life of me, but I love sketching it out!
