Journal Confusion

I've been unhappy with my journals lately and I don't really understand why. What I want in a journal is thick pages, super smooth paper, NOT ring-bound, with pages small enough to not overwhelm my brain but large enough that they can stand individually because I HATE doing spreads. I found one that I was enjoying, I like the sizes, the pages were nice and smooth, it was landscape (a stretch for me) but I really wanted it to be awesome. I was having a good time. Then I did a page that was just sort of doodles. I wanted to paint over it. It was the back side of this face. I painted it green. 

And then I was pissed! I didn't add any water or anything and the stupid paint leaked through anyway!! So I removed the pages and glued them into the journal I made. Why am I struggling with this so much? I used to journal every single freaking day. I'm GOING TO GET BACK TO THAT. I don't know how yet, but I will.

  1. Goog, you may just have to stick to your own handmade journals...at least you know the paper you are using. :)
