Journaling is an excellent practice to exercise for many reasons. It can be a therapeutic activity that helps you reflect on day-to-day experiences. It can also serve as a creative outlet, providing a space for you to explore new writing styles or ideas. Journaling can also serve as a way of documenting travels or memorable life events. It may feel silly at the time, but there’s no doubt it’s an invaluable treat to re-read something and have it transport you right back to what you were feeling at that moment. Take your journal with you, wherever you go, by crafting a journaling page with Adobe Spark.

How to Start a Journal

  1. Choose Your Theme

    What purpose does this journal serve? Is it a personal diary? A travel blog? A private journal or maybe even a collaborative one with friends? Anything is possible with Spark Page. Once you choose the theme of your content, you can choose a design theme to match. Click “Themes” in the top right corner of you Spark Page editor to choose from design suites that feature different font styles and page headers. Explore each and find the one that works best with your journal!

  2. Experiment with Layout Options

    Adobe Spark Page features multiple layout options and customization tools so you can create a page design that resonates with your journal. Once you get started working with Spark Page, click the “+” signs to choose the type of section you’d like to build. There are several options for photo layouts, including grids, glide shows, and split layouts to name a few, that showcase text, photos, videos, and buttons. Experiment with photo collages, glide shows with text overlay captions, and different font header options to create hierarchy. You can also create bullet points or numbered lists, and add hyperlinks to your text.

  3. Create a Collaborative Journal

    While in your Spark Page workspace, click the head silhouette icon to add collaborators to your page. If you’re creating a travel journal or journal for a group project, or even just a journal to keep up with distant friends, the collaborator options makes it simple and easy for anyone to add to your page!

  4. Save and Share Your Journal

    You can publish your journal at anytime, and always go back to re-edit and add to it. You can preview it at anytime during the developing process, or try out “Present” to view it as a slideshow. When you’re ready to share your hard work with the world, click “Share” to publish your journal and create a link to share with friends and family if you’d like!
