I teach and make a journal that starts out with flat pages. It is an easy, no-excuses way to journal, since flat pages travel well, and are really easy to use. Two months ago I posted the beginnings of my journal for Journalfest, and now,Â I finally finished the whole magilla!!! The first post of the pages in stages and flat, is here:
Now the journal is colored, the spaces filled with my stash from the event, and the pages are bound. Here is the cover.
The journal got really big this time, so much fodder at an event like Journalfest. Great classes, inventive trades, beautiful, historic seaside setting. Ahhhhhh.
I made maps everyday of the tables at breakfast and lunch. This involved a brief interview with my table mates, and the theme was different every time. It is a great way to get to know people, and may enlighten you in ways you never dreamed of. Someone handed out these little brown envelopes, and they were perfect to stash stuff in, like the handouts from the teachers.
Maps, Maps, Maps! You would think I had a thing about maps. I cut up the map I did in Orly Avineri’s class. She is lovely, and amazing.
More maps and wax rubbings. Fort Worden has lots of great opportunities for making wax rubbings. Last year my class was buzzing around finding all the good stuff, and now I know where it is…..

On the last night the journalers had a masked extravaganza. I sat and drew them while they journaled and all around showed themselves off. Some fancy duds there, I will say that. That night was a real treat for the senses.
There are too many pages in this journal to post, I got a little carried away!
