It's interesting to me that we all have different approaches to the concept of journaling, but that most of us seem to do a bit along the way when working toward an idea. I agree with you, Kristin, that the idea of creating gorgeous artful journals is art-creation in itself, and that takes away from precious fabric art time.

What's a girl to do?!

And I hadn't thought about it, but the computer files of images I acquire on the way to finalizing an idea, and the blog entries I've made while thinking thru something, are themselves a way of journaling.

I think I'm still going to try to see if I can keep my images/notes/thoughts/sketches in one place as I work on the themes for this challenge.

I don't typically journal (although I like to make blank journals). I'm going to try to make and keep a journal for this project as an educational experience.

The ZIG ZAG group exhibited their "tripARTite" quilts at the Sydney Quilt Show in July and shared their visual journals at the Gala Dinner. These were certainly art creations in their own right.

Art journals are not a natural form of expression for me and I don't want to get bogged down with making a pretty presentation piece. Nevertheless, like Nikki and Diane, I am contemplating at least starting (if not finishing) a Twelve by Twelve project journal.
