A couple of months ago I went to a wonderful workshop with the amazingly talented France Papillion. She totally encouraged me to have a go at journaling - something I had never been comfortable with. So this is MY style of journal page - lots of product and technique but comfortable and still my work. Kind of a hybrid scrapbook page/journal page. A single layout because for me that flows more easily than a double. Not so much about emotions as about memories.
I think I may be a convert to MY form of journal page - it does not conform but so what? If you are thinking about journaling for 2015 then I say go for it - and do what is natural - not what you think a journal page is about. I have France to thank for that lesson.
