Last night I got out the two travel journals I'm working on for my Italy trip, and started trying to assess the situation. I couldn't resist taking a photo today of my growing pile of travel journals, each one representing a trip to another country. I have two for this past trip because Amy and I decided we wanted to have one to use as an example; ideas and different techniques used, and one we'd make alongside the class, using the exact supplies in their kit. One would include the days before and after class, and one for the week of class.
As always, I have succeeded in making a good mess, if nothing else. It's one of my gifts. ;) Unfortunately. I brought out all I had gathered on the trip and started to sort which book it belonged in. This trip was no different than others I have taken in that I hardly got to work in the books. I wanted to get back to them before the pictures and stories I wanted to add left my noggin for good.
This is the cover of my Orvieto journal, the one made during the week of class. Amy gifted each of us with an Orvieto shield she made. So love it Am, thank you!
The first journal I picked up again was the one for our days in Florence before class, and Rome after class.
I truly can not believe that it has come and gone!
Time plays tricks with my mind on the regular.
Since I haven't uploaded the thousands of photos I took (hard drive storage issues), I just used post-its to mark what I was thinking.
Of course, time flew last night too, but as least I've re-started, often the hardest part for me. I had to cut some pages out of my signatures already, I didn't leave enough room for fodder collected to be added.
I'll be sharing the finds brought home soon. the Fabriano Boutique in Florence was a favorite for sure.
Can't wait to get to the week in Orvieto. Here's the book I made in that class, with marble papers bought while there used on the edges.
Off to either press on or move my mess...;)
