I have a small moleskine journal full of quotes. Everytime I see a quote or word I write it down. I want to use many of them on canvas but my mojo sees a blank canvas and shuts down a little. This is where an art journal comes in handy. You can play with colors, textures, embellishments and figure out what looks nice. I found doing this page I love the color combo of this distress inks.
Never look back unless you are planning to go that way.
