If you’ve read much of this blog, you’ll know that I’m a collector of quotes. Some people in this world just seem to be able to capture the human experience in a succinct, memorable and meaningful manner. There are two places I collect quotes. One of them is my bullet journal (see left). As I come across a quote I want to collect, I write it down – usually on my current daily page, although, sometimes I set aside pages specifically for jotting down the wisdom of others. Eventually, though, most of these quotes find their way into my artful journal too, where I often make them a focal point on the page. Below, I’m going to share some of the ways, I’ve added quotes to my artful journal. You can click on the images in the gallery for a closer look if you like.

So, that’s how I’ve been adding quotes to my journal. Have you been adding them to yours?
Thanks for reading! Back soon. xxx
