Earlier this year, I posted my initial page spreads for my 2022 reading journal with the intention to track different things and also make my reading journal more artsy. I’ve enjoyed experimenting with different mediums to capture the “aesthetics” of the books I feature in my journal. I am not doing a page for each book I read like I did previously, just the ones I enjoyed the most or had a great idea for a fun art journal-ish page.
I also realized part way through January that I don’t like how my handwriting looks on the page. I’ve got a few ideas to try to make it neater/look better but haven’t done much with that. So some of the pages include my thoughts and some are blank because I wanted to capture the art I did before I added words and made it more “messy.”
Here are some of the spreads I’ve done over the past couple of months.
