A picture is worth a thousand….here are a few tips to combine images with your journal:
Doodle in your journal in place of words.
Sketch pictures of your characters. Use colored pencils and shade hair and eye color, garments, the weather…
Tape in images that inspire you – from magazines, birthday cards, post cards, etc. Use these as writing prompts.
If you tape in an image, use it as a writing exercise. Describe in great detail all that you see within that image.
Simply draw shapes. Use light-colored markers or colored pencils and create big, bold shapes – and then write within the shapes.
