One of the things that folks often say in classes is that they have no place to write on their pages. The page above is an example as to how there's ALWAYS room to write! I like to explore my handwriting as I put pen to paper using different colored pens/markers and font styles. Not sure if a pen will work? Try it. If you don't like it, wipe it off before it dries (if you can) or let it dry and go over it with another color pen. My point is that there is always a place to write on your pages. It's just a matter of stepping outside of your comfort zone and asking yourself, "what if?" Remember, it's not art to hang on the wall, it's art in your journal, your safe place to play and explore.
