Paper Daydreams


Dear Fellow Journalers,

While researching for great journal ideas, I came across this quote which, by the way, is very appropriate for today’s post: ” tokens can be a source of inspiration and add visual and texture to pages”.

I have 2 lists of things to add to my journal. One list is digital and the other is of actual things, (tokens) I can  hold. My daughter-in-law challenged me to try Pinterest and I am now hooked. I have “pinned” peaceful scenes, book covers, quotes etc. and put them in a folder marked Journal.  My second list includes: recipes, cancelled postage stamps, pre-stamped and die-cut images, silk flowers, paint chips, scraps of handwritten notes, greeting cards, keys and sections of maps.

I decorated an envelope and put the items in it. I then placed the envelope in the inside cover of my journal. I am currently reading a great book entitled, “365 Journal Writing Ideas A year of Daily Journal Writing” by Rossi Fox.  I found a tip about adding photos to a page that I wanted to share with you. He created a template the size of a photo and added it to the back pocket of his journal. Then when he wanted to add the photo and write about it, he just took out the template, drew around it, added the photo and had space to write. He discovered that 4″ x 2.5″ is the perfect template to fit 8 photos on an A4 sheet of photo paper. I have yet to try this, but it sounds reasonable.

What are your inspirational/motivational tokens? Please share them with me at
