A successfuljournal will......draw on every page....attempt various drawing techniques that were used in class....consider and experiment with layout....title every page....use a dark pen or marker for lettering/handwriting....utilise colour....experiment with fonts and lettering and often mix and match them....will gather found objects and use them as layers or build   them into the composition....experiment and merge techniques and mediums on some pages....attempt to match text and drawing in most how the artist attempted to improve....reflect on experiences....add decorative techniques to enhance the appearance of the page.
  • 3. An unsuccessfuljournal will......only do simple drawings in their book....resort to an elementary style of drawing, usually only with side profiles of objects....use only pencil....only use normal handwriting....rely only on photography....simply recount or summarise events to fill space....worry too much about what to draw.(Putting the time and effort in to draw well will show to the viewer)
