Inspiration Journals

journalcover.JPGWe talked about inspiration journals in an older post. You can see Elsie Flannigan’s, Christy Tomlinson’s, Courtney Walsh’s and mine here! Now it’s time for some more! (Also, we recently posted about Inspiration Boards.)

I’ve been collecting clippings from magazines and other sources for a number of years. I’m not sure how many books I have filled up with things that inspire me, but it would pale in comparison to the space that would have been taken up by all the hoards of magazines I’ve purchased over the years if I hadn’t cut things out and tossed the rest! There are some magazines that I cannot bear to cut into though! Shown in this post are photos of pages from my current inspiration book which is a brown suede journal. The pages inside are lined. I also have a Moleskin journal with blank pages which I use for jotting down ideas and sketches.

Jeannette Herdman demonstrates on a SISTV video (#65) how to make your own inspiration book. As she mentions, it helps to make note of what it is about the photo that inspires you. Down the road your taste changes and you may not remember what originally drew you to the photo!

Artsy Mama shows her inspiration journal here.

We’d love to see pages from your inspiration journals. If you feel like sharing, send us an email at scrapscene

    we have started a community inpsiration board over at ….. it is simply a thread where any member can “pin” any picture to the “board” or thread ….I thought it would be a fun way to include an virtual inspiraiton board into an online forum for everyone to enjoy! 🙂
