Coloring/Quotes Journal

It's time for a new challenge over at 
The Outlawz Twisted Thursday and the optional twist is:  
Journal Page.

I enjoy journaling and actually have several different journals of different sizes for my thoughts.  I make them myself using a Cinch machine and my base pages in this particular journal are made from cereal boxes.  

This particular journal houses cowboy thinking, Native American philosophy, horse quotes, western motif, etc.  Examples below:
Pages in this journal measure 5" x 7.25"
This particular layout features a beautiful page from Fabrika Fantasy.  My oh my, are the pages there beautiful!  If you enjoy coloring, you are sure to find images there you will love.  This page, Forest Witch with Her Fox Familiar, is from the coloring book titled Ancient SagasI printed the page and colored this scene with Copic markers, pencils, and gel pens.  (Now, I put in red how I printed the page because they do sell books with the images in it.  I chose to print.)  This particular image is currently free to download; scroll to bottom of page.  

These are the sort of pages I could spend hours coloring!  So many ideas and variations.  One could print this image multiple times and come up with something very different every time!  Fabrika Fantasy also offers a digi club.
