There are different ways to turn our bad mood into a good one; we can do shopping, watching movies, read some books, play some games and many more. In my case, especially this pandemic, one of the most common way that I do, to make myself feel okay is doing journaling.

I actually shared this one; that journaling is like writing a diary or taking some notes. Since before, I'm a big fan of arts, so when I don't feel good I would go for it. For now, I'll share some materials that I used in journaling, those that I used more often.

But first let me Flex to you my sponsors, one of those persons who guide and support me throughout my journey here. You guys can check them too:)

________________________

Journal Paper

This can be use as a base of your journal. You can use it whole since it have different sizes, or you can cut it half and put in both ends of your paper. If you are out of budget, you can use recycled papers, that is what I did before when I don't have money to buy some, it's all about your creativity.

Washi Masking Tape

I already used some of it :D I'm sorry I cannot show it's design but I bought these in Shopee, because at mall they only have plan washi tape and glitters. I have glitters too but I already used it all.

This Tape is used for design, to attached your notes in a more creative way, but I commonly use this as a base. After I put Journal paper, I then add Washi Tape for it to look more attractive.

Stickers

Box Stickers

This is called box stickers because it's shape is box. Lol!

DIY Stickers

Why DIY? Because I only download these photos from Google, then I print it. After that I put scotch tape to make it glossy. Lastly, I cut them and here's the finished product. Btw, I make these black envelopes to put my diy stickers. For example that black envelope with a cat sticker, it means that these envelop if for my cat stickers.

Golden and dot stickers

These are my favorite because of it's elegant design; easy to use and worth to buy.

When I was in Primary I always buy stickers in our school. I got addicted that I only spend my money on it, I don't use it always, but just to satisfy my eyes, it became one of my biggest collection that time. During my birthday, I ask my parents to buy me stickers as a gift; the good thing is they support me.

Memo pad/Sticky note pad

For those who like to have a good output but lazy to make a design, then I recommend you to buy sticky note pads with design already. There's a lot in stores, but I only have these.

Again when I was in primary, my grade 5 teacher was selling sticky note pad. There's no design, only plain but different colors. I use all my savings that time just to buy all the colors that she sell. Everytime there's announcement or notes to be taken, I'm so inspired to write it using these sticky notes. Don't worry I also have good grades that time. Lol!

Sample Output

I only use few materials on this, since I'm in a "tipid" mode. I usually finish designing everything before writing on it, there's a lot of sample designs in YouTube, but it need a lot of materials. I know someday I can buy those; there's no age limit in art. While for writing, I prefer colored pens or glitters, it will add beauty on your work.

So why I like to do journaling is it makes me relax, just looking at these cute staffs already make me happy. It challenge my creativity, everytime I only have limited materials, I become creative and resourceful. And lastly, my dedication to write boost; I don't know if you feel the same but I love to write in a clean and made of art paper. This energized me and enjoy what I am doing.


And that's it everyone, hope you enjoy it.

Sorry if these photos are not clear, I can't directly upload photos here, so I need to send and download it first it messenger, which makes it blur. For those who know how to fix this, please let me know. Thank you!

My sister is really fond of these things but I'm so lazy kind of person that's why I don't prefer it. You're really talented and have mastered in this art, those stickers, sticky notes, and everything are really cute and beautiful. Whenever I feel low, I just sit down alone with my paper and pain and start to write poems.

I am not fond of designing the things I made specially related to arts, I am okay with plain and clean works with a little bit of design made by pentlepen hahaha. I remember that I have this classmate before that had different stickers and design that's why we gonna borrow or buy those design to her then we gonna input it in our works to make it look attractive.

Its really so coincidental @Ling01 that I also used to do most of the time with art when I get free time or in bad mood but lately due to hectic studies and schedule I switched it journaling I started writing my thoughts and feelings and emotions and since I like your creativity ideas for it I am going to save it because it is really awesome ideas I have never thought before and also I am not rich so I normally do not buy stickers and wattpads but I think I will definitely do it. Thank you soo much)

yours is soo creative))
