I've never really been the type for a "catch all" journal. In fact, I suppose some would say I obsessively compartmentalize - one journal for daily diary stuff, another for character creation & storytelling, yet another for "affirmational" work and dozens of plain spiral-bound books for sketches, creative writing, and project planning. As I work through this new style of journal, I realize that my illustration work has to stay separated in my faithful black sketchbooks. For that, I need a simple, consistent format.
However, these Boogie journals are inspiring me to add a little bit of everything alongside my daily musings and observations: a little poetry, some illustrations, hand lettering, altering, collage...basically whatever tickles my fancy in the moment. All that random stuff may seem disjointed and unconnected but I am working under some self-imposed supply limitations to keep that feeling to a minimum.
And most importantly, I'm just playing! I'm also not known for my spontaneity but I am working hard at listening to my gut and just moving forward with my first impulse. It is good for the soul and honestly, I have plenty of other journals and projects where I can plan things down to the last, itty bitty detail.
