Nina Laden: Conceptual Journaling (From the Mixed-Up Journals of Nina Laden)

After accepting her Crystal Kite Award for Once Upon a Memory, author-ilustrator Nina Laden welcomes a packed room ready to work on conceptual journaling.

To Nina a journal is so many things.

So why journal? Because if you do not write it/draw it you will forget it.

Fancy vs. Not Fancy Journals? For Nina, it's too hard to figure out what to put in the fancy journal. So they sit empty.

Size does matter. A journal can be too small or too large. You have to find a size that's comfortable.

The only rule: You can never tear the pages out.

A journal does not need to be neat.

Nina's favorite quote: "If you are afraid of making a mistake you won't make anything." There are no mistakes in journaling.

Time to play...

The room busy journaling.
