pocket diary #002 / #003

small magazine collages in my pocket diary [A6 leuchtturm1917 notebook] while visiting seattle, washington this past week – i had a really lovely visit, and i may share some photos &etc. later. i did quite a bit of personal writing / journaling while there in addition to these two collages.

i usually carry collage supplies with me wherever i go, and TSA has never given me trouble about my tiny embroidery scissors that i generally collage with, as their rules state that scissors can be carried on a plane as long as they’re less than 4 inches from the pivot point. a couple of years ago, i was collaging on a flight to portland, and my seatmate about lost their mind over how i was able to get on the plane with sharp scissors… ha.

magazine collage in A6 leuchtturm1917 notebook

began a new pocket diary tonight – i use a larger leuchtturm1917 notebook as my regular catch-all notebook that i make work notes in, journal, use as a planner/adapted bullet journal, etc. sometimes i don’t like carrying around such a large one, especially for travel, so i thought i’d give a smaller one a go as i’ll be in seattle the next few days.

it won’t be exclusively collage, but i definitely intend to do some small work in it. i try to just let myself be messy and experimental in my regular notebooks, and that applies to collage too.
