We got back from a holiday last week in which I brought my traveling art journal box along. I had a few opportunities to play with the supplies, so I thought I'd show you some of the pages I made. (If you missed my previous post on this subject, you can read it here: "Inside my Traveling Art Journal Box.")
This was part of the set-up at my in-law's cabin in Manitoba. On the coffee table.
These 4 pages were done in the old book/art journal that I brought along. (You can see the cover shown here – in the 2nd photo.) At an estate sale in the village where the cabin was, I found an old hymnal, so that was the inspiration for the page on the left. I wanted to cut into it, but my MIL rescued it from me, LOL!
This spread isn't quite finished yet. It will have some journaling eventually:
This is the cover I altered of another old book that I found at that same estate sale. It was a hunting book and the man was part of the scene on the book sleeve. I cut him out, coloured him with inks and stamped on him a bit before gluing him down. The background was colour-washed with paint and inks. As you can see, I have a thing for clouds these days. The clouds were painted in and then stamped on top of. The rings were done with paint and a pop bottle lid, and then shaded with a paintbrush. I may still add to this cover yet.
This is just inside the cover. No journaling on this page yet.
