Hey guys and gals!

Just thought I'd share a few fun pics of my journal since it's been a good long while since I've done so :)

The cover may be a bit plain, but...

...all of the color is inside!

It really is.

I'm also a nerd and have written private entries in an alphabet found in a video game to keep curious eyes at bay.

One of my more recent, and favorite patterns.

Since I'm incredibly close to journal completion, I'm getting ready to break in a new one.
This particular one sports blank pages, which will make drawing nicer :D

Sorry for the photos being, well, kind of dulled out. My camera phone has no flash, and indoor lighting is terrible :/

Never use flash in your photos! Go outside or near a window on a sunshiney day to get natural light- my camera has flash but I only use it if I absolutely have to.

The code written entries- do you have the letters memorized or if you want to reread those entries do you have to look up the code again?

In other news, your journal is beautiful. Share more soon!

Those are really good ideas! I never thought of just getting natural light, haha XD My next post will definitely include pictures taken outside when it's sunny :) I assume that using flash causes the journal's pages to get washed out with brightness?

It took me a while to figure out the alphabet. I do have some of the letters memorized, but I also have a handy little key (a.k.a. a scrap of paper with the alphabet translated on it) for the parts I forgot. It may be a little tedious to translate it all back later if I want to reread it again, but I'd rather not have to worry about someone reading sensitive info. It's happened so much to me in the past, that I found myself censoring myself in my later journals out of fear of someone finding it and reading it behind my back again :/ This code alleviates my feelings of paranoia and allows me to write freely :D

And thank you, I appreciate the kind words! I'll share more as soon as I have enough for a descent post :)

I also miss your posts and wish there were more of them! I adore all the colour and patterns inside... what a fun way to kill time!

Hey, thanks :)
It's actually super relaxing for me to draw the patterns. I get into my own little groove and have music playing in the background. Not only is it a good way to kill time, but for me it also eliminates the stress of the day :) It's like a little meditative me time! :D
(as a side note, the color is all done in sharpie markers, so after twenty minutes of coloring in a small room, I'm more relaxed than ever, if you know what I mean! Haha XD)

Wow! Your work is so clean and linear. Well done! I am with everyone on the no flash rule. Flash is just horrid, unless you're shooting at sunset trying to get the sun behind you or when shooting with fireworks in the background. Otherwise, shoot only during the day during a bright and well-lit window.

Those are good tips to remember! Thank you! :D
