journal pages and YUMMY colors

I have started journaling again since the holidays are over, kinda a ReSet button. I don't do a lot of words, but I love quotes. The Left side of the journal page with the upside down tree reads, Embrace Uncertainty.
The right side reads, Love is the Center of the Universe.
Both I heard Deepak Chopra say. I love listening to him, his voice is soft and I could listen all day.
He gets up at 4 am every day to meditate for 2 hours then goes to the gym!

ok, aren't these colors just DELICIOUS!? They are Metallic Watercolors that a friend gave me over the holidays! Perfect. She just knows how much I love color and Sparkle is always fabulous. Can't wait to dive into these tonight. NOT so sure how they would work on the straight Journal paper... ? ANy thoughts out there? Art teacher friends, Michelle? Connie? Should I use watercolor paper and adhere it in the journal pages?

Hi! I just LOVE these colors! I want some of my own:) I recommend using watercolor paper if you don't want your sketchbook paper to wrinkle. However I use watercolors in my journal all the time and the wrinkling does not usually bother me too much:) Have fun!

p.s. I teach high school to answer your question:)

It has been a while since I sat down with my journal. Do post pics of your new work. I have seen an interview of Deepak Chopra's, interesting, was interesting.
