Cover and final page of French artjournal



I finally managed to get the cover of my recent French trip journal done and also the last page.
The main image on the cover was a scan of a plastic carrier bag we picked up in a local tourist shop. I altered it quite a bit in photoshop and then drew and painted over and around it, added the words journal 2010 etc. Like that I was able to stick to my plan to mainly use local bits and pieces for this journal. The background for the final page was a paper serviette. I found this amazing craft shop in Colmar where they sold loads of different designs and you could buy them singly!

Monthly Calendar page



Here is my page for August. This is the monthly challenge Kate Crane of the Kathryn Wheel posted way back in January. It took me a long time starting this and I always forgot to post my pages here, but anyway, better late than never.

Back from France








We got back from France yesterday. Had a great time with lots of wonderful warm weather and relaxation. Of course I had taken some art supplies and a journal, so I'll show some of the pages. Not all of them have the journalling on them yet. I used a lot of local bits and pieces for my collages in this journal, taken from leaflets, serviettes, paper bags and whatever else I could find. It was great fun looking out for things to use.

Off to France



The last few weeks have been very busy and I have not been able to create or indeed to blog as much as I would have liked. I also feel as if I have sadly neglected some of my blogging friends .
At last my holiday/vacation has started and tomorrow we are going off to France for three weeks, so again, I will not be blogging. But, when I am back I'll have more time again and will be blogging more regularly. I want to use this opportunity to thank all my blogging friends and followers. Your wonderful comments always mean a lot to me!!

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
