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!

Das hast Du wunderschön gemacht, liebe Astrid! Was für eine nette Erinnerung an Deine Frankreich-Reise. Der Satz auf der Rückseite gefällt mir, denn ich bin auch immer wieder froh, wenn ich wieder Zuhause bin. Wenn es auch noch schön war. Und so soll es ja auch sein, oder?

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!
