I started using Paperblanks journals about a year ago, when the amazing details of the small journal (above – the one on top) caught my attention. I bought it right away without even looking at the price and I started writing in it. My journal has experienced a lot. From a little diary to a whole art journal, and now based pretty much on art and drawings.

The other journal caught my attention too and I bought it a few weeks ago when I was with my mother. She always supports my art and loves these journals too! She works a lot with papers, since she owns a restaurant, so she is planning on getting one too! My art differs based on my mood. Here are some examples:

My journals also contain memories like drawings from friends and photos. I live in Germany because I study here and whenever I get the chance to go visit my Romanian friends, I make sure I bring them something and that they write/draw anything they want in my journal.

Haha the one above is kinda funny because I fought with one of my best friends and one of my friends did a drawing about the things that person called me and some other friends.

This one I loooove! It is made by a friend that totally adores octopuses and I just fell in love with it!

These are all the memories I made in Romania in 2017. ?

This one OH MY GOSH!! It is made by one of my girlfriends, Diana! I love it so much! Also, the sushi haha!! The story behind this is that in Romania, there was a stand with sushi and the guys there were flaming hot! Damn!

Our Peek Inside… series takes a look inside people’s journals to celebrate their imagination and inspire others. Please send us an email if you have a project that you would like to be featured.
