For the Record (#31)

I hope everyone’s enjoying the weekend! In today’s For the Record, I’m happy to introduce Cait ( caitmceniff ), a 17 year old living in Warrington, England, who is currently at Sixth Form studying Art, History, English, and Psychology. She is hoping to do an art foundation and have a career in art. She kindly took time out to talk to me about her journals and ambitious journal project:

1. How long have you been journaling?

I’ve kept little scrapbooks and doodles or sketchbooks since I was little, but I only really started properly keeping journals about 2 years ago.

2. Can you describe how you use your journal?

This January I started my own project I called “12 Journals, 12 Months”, where I try to complete a 92 page A6 journal each month, so far I’ve done 4 which are pretty full! Because of school workload, my journal style is mainly inspiration based because I don’t have time to draw or paint properly in them, as I have to spend that time doing art coursework :(. Hopefully after my exams I can start to properly journal with my drawings and paintings! My journals are a mixture of quotes, images I’ve found, magazine cuttings, doodles, photographs, memories, thoughts, artist inspiration etc.
