Session 4-Focal Point: Words, Images Session 5-Details: Pen, Pencil

Session 4: Focal Point
Words-think magazine ads, alphabet stickers, newspaper headlines, print outs, etc.
Images-think magazines pics, downloaded graphics, die cuts, family photos, etc.

When you’re gathering supplies you might be tempted to hand pick items for each individual page. Don’t do it! Flip through your journal to get an idea for what you might want to use. CLOSE your journal then go to your stash and pick out a bunch of possible items to use as a focal point for your pages. Choose more than you will need so that you will have the freedom to change your mind or head in a different direction at the last minute.

If you need to secure any of your collaged items, this is a good time to do that. No time limit, just take whatever time you need to secure down any loose edges with whatever glue you prefer to use.

Session 5: Details
Pens-think drawing pens, paint pens, markers, gel pens, etc.
Pencils-think graphite, colored pencils, charcoal, pastels, chalks, etc.

You’re going to want a lot more time for this session but don’t cheat yet! Make simple marks and shapes, outline a few images, start a doodled border, etc. Just do a little something on each page.

All 5 sessions will take you an hour and 15 minutes. When you’re done, you might have a completed 20 page journal but it’s more likely that you will have 20 pages that you’re absolutely dying to continue working on! From here you can repeat the process again, or schedule your own 15 minute free play sessions where you make the rules. You might have some strong ideas about where you want your pages to go and you don’t feel like you need the time limit anymore. Go for it!!
