Holiday Journal from France

Here are some pages from the art journal I started whilst on holiday in France.
Although I wanted to work on my journal when we were away, I found that I 
didn't really have time, what with sightseeing, eating long French lunches and swimming
in the pool. I collected tourist leaflets and ephemera and took photos when we were out. I also made notes in a rough book of where we had been, and worked on it when we returned home.
We stayed in the Lot region, a very pretty area with beautiful old bastide towns,
 lovely rivers and scenery.

Flip Flop Books

This week in my Mixed Media group we made " Flip Flop " books,
under the tuition on Janina Maher. We all had a kit and produced
two small books in a reversible cover.
It was great fun, and I am really pleased with my books!

Holiday Journal

I have set myself a challenge to make a holiday art journal. I'm fairly new to art journalling, although I am familiar with many mixed media techniques. So it's the first time I have done this. Limited by the materials I brought with me - sketchbook, pencil case, brush pens and travel watercolour palette, made me creative in using found objects for my journal pages.

Pages printed with brush pens on plastic bag

Collage of gift wrap paper

Collage of newspaper from plane

Art journal pages

I have been preparing journal pages with collage, using old, tattered music manuscript.
