Journal with a Brush!

A sample of Diana's whimsical, artistic journaling.

A sample of Diana’s whimsical, artistic journaling. 

I blog in the very straightforward way I know best. From my background in communications, I love to write and take photos.  And my earlier years of travel journaling in small leather-bound books, provided a very natural transition to blogging.

But for those of you who are more artistically oriented, I have the perfect suggestion.  Have you ever explored journaling through art? 

I know of a talented and very creative lady – Diana Gessler, who can show you the way.

An illustrator and travel journalist, she has authored five books (Very California, Very Charleston, Very New Orleans, Very Washington DC , and The Sampoerna Legacy ), Diana also holds workshops around the country to help channel that artistic drive. Her work is enchanting and her books make delightful gifts.

Check out her website, to see what she’s up to and where she will be next.  Have fun and happy journaling.

About KFBuchsbaum

A lover of words, learning something new every day, exploring new places, and meeting people from different cultures is what feeds my spirit. One significant thing I learned from my years in market research is that time away from an experience dilutes the memories.  You lose the highs and lows and end up with middle-of-the-road impressions.  The reason I started to blog, was to capture experiences real-time, in the moment.  I hope my moments help you relive some of your own great adventures or maybe plan some new.
