Creative Journaling Ideas


Go Beyond the Photo

Go Beyond the Photo

Design by Emily Pitts

Images don't always tell the whole story, so use your journaling to provide a context for the photos. Emily provided unseen details about her husband's decision to buy a new car. Describe the things that can't be seen, such as other sights, sounds, and smells; the activity leading up to or following the moment captured by pictures; and the emotions related to the photo.
