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!

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.

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!!
