I have been the queen of Composition Notebook journaling, but going through some of the workshops at 21 Secrets prompted me to try some new materials and I'm having an absolute blast!
First of all, I bought myself a mixed media, spiral bound pad. It's 9" x 12" (larger than a Composition Notebook) and unlined.
Whether it's trying something new like gesso, or trying a different size or type of journal, try something new for your journaling! It's always rewarding to take a fresh approach to your creativity. Remember, your creative muse likes to play and will thrive in the atmosphere of experimentation.
So go ahead - put your records on, let your hair down and try something new for your creative journaling. There's just nothing else like "Happy Creating!"
