Anyway, I've always loved documenting things in my life with my writing (and photography), but sometimes I feel like a diary entry is either too much or too little for an event I want to remember. For example, if I had lunch with a friend after not seeing them for a while, I would like to make a note of it, but it seems a bit pointless to write "Dear diary, today I saw [insert name]. We had lunch at [insert food place]. It was nice." - that's where my art journal comes in.
I like doing "summaries of the month" in my art journals to remember the little things, like lunch dates. On these pages, I'll write the name of the month at the top and decorate the page will little pictures and notes that are relevant to that month. I'll post some examples below.
