Recently I have been getting a lot of questions on Instagram so I thought I would do another Q&A to answer some of them. Besides, I love to use the question thingy on Instagram. If you have any other questions feel free to ask me any time and I’ll give my best to answer them.
Who is your favorite artist on Instagram and why?
To be honest I can’t choose just one. There are a lot of amazing people out there. One of my favorites are @agirlwithajournal because I just love her journaling style and her watercolor backgrounds, @mereljournals because I am obsessed with her collages and her yellow feed, @megjournals because she makes the prettiest collages and always has these amazing vintage flowers and @cayleegrey because she has an amazing minimalistic style and always uses amazing color.
How many hours a week do you spend journaling?
I honestly can’t tell because it depends on how much time and ideas I have. Sometimes I don’t journal at all and sometimes I journal all day long. Recently I haven’t been journaling a lot. I just finished my exams at uni and couldn’t journal that much and now I am struggling to pick it up again.
When did you start journaling?
I started journaling in 2014 when I was an exchange student in the US for a year without knowing journaling even was a thing. I wrote a blog post about this a while ago. If you would like to read the whole story you can find it here.
How old were you when you started journaling?
I was fifteen years old
How is your handwriting this perfect and was it always like this?
First of all, thank you and no it wasn’t always like this. I am left handed and since many lefties have horrible handwriting my mom always was pushing me to try to write in a more or less pretty way and it annoyed me a lot. Around seventh or eighth grade I then had some friends who had very pretty handwriting and I was very jealous and tried to copy it all the time. But it wasn’t until I started journaling my handwriting started to look like this. I didn’t even force it. I just wanted to write pretty and suddenly people started to be impressed by my handwriting.
Has your journaling style changed since you started?
Yes, it has but it still changes all the time. When I started my journaling was more about writing and I would add some stickers or just write out some words with a different pen. I had a phase when I loved to include a lot of pictures and right now I am into watercolor backgrounds. For a while, I also made a lot of collages. It depends on my mood.
Thank you very much for reading. Feel free to ask me anything you would like to know in the comments because I love to chat with you guys and get to know you better.
Lots of Love
