You can see that I am still fascinated by the work of Juliana Coles. In fact, I ordered one of her visual journal workshop booklets, and I can't wait to get started. In the meantime, I've been studying her work online and trying to use her method of journaling. Here's what she says about Extreme Visual Journaling: "In an Extreme Visual Journal, we are after the rich interior. We are concerned with our own and unique inner, ancient wisdom. We want to find our voice, our style, and our flair for life by documenting our past, present and future in a book. We are NOT concerned with making art. We are NOT concerned with a product or pretty picture. We want to know how to unfold and in that moment, there is remarkable beauty on the page we did not know we possessed." This will be quite a stretch for me.
