Journal With Me | Travelers Notebook


In today's blog post, I am going to guide you through the step by step process for creating this journal spread. I used a plain insert, which I keep inside my standard size Travelers Notebook cover from Start Bay Notebooks.


*You can click any of the images below to enlarge them.



Step 1: Start off by sketching the outside petals of your flower. I'm using a Sakura Pigma Micron pen which is waterproof.

Step 2: Carry on adding petals and the stem until you have the full shape of your flower.

Step 3: Add thin lines to the petals for detail and bolder lines for depth.



Step 4: Next, add some colour to your flower. I am using Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolour in my journal.

Step 5: For a pretty border, I added some London Gifties washi tape along the edge of both of my journal pages.

Step 6: I then added some stamping of flowers along the bottom of my pages. I used Tim Holtz Wildflower stamps.



Step 7: It's also a lovely addition to add some watercolour splashes across your journal pages.

Step 8: I always enjoy adding a quote to my page. For this I used the Tim Holtz Small Talk sticker book.

Step 9: I finished off the decorative elements by cutting images out of washi tape to use as stickers.



Step 10: For writing inspiration I used prompt 262 from my new book, which is "what little things did you notice today that are worth remembering?"

Steps 11 & 12: Fill in the empty spaces on your journal page with writing.
