More Fake Journal Photos

In my journal, I have them labeled as different "selves" of mine that have shown up so far. For instance, these represent "The Fixer One", "The Artist One", "The Scared One" and "The Sensual One". "The Wise One" has also appeared up but her picture is different from these paper dolls.

More later. Maybe. :)

International Fake Journal Month

Not only is April National Poetry Month, it is also International Fake Journal Month! I'm participating with a few adaptations of my own. I've scanned in a few of the things I've done in the journal so far and will post them here, but I am not sure I will offer any specifics about my actual writing. I have found that talking too much about it to others makes it harder for me to just relax and let my imagination flow because then I start thinking of what other people might think (sad, but true). It is a fun and imaginative project. I bought a watercolor Moleskine notebook to use thinking I'd have plenty of pages but now I am beginning to worry that I am going to run out of journal before I run out of story!

Here is a scan of the first piece of "artwork" that has "shown up" in the journal. I like the ghosty image of my arm in the background. I am sure you will see my arm and fingers again if I post more pictures of this journal. It's a simple collage made up of a note I'd written to help myself remember an idea for a "thang" I wanted to do, which I just remembered I have not posted on my blog!

Here it is:

I just love my row of cheap Dollar Tree angels!

I'll be back with more, I am sure. :)
