Happy new week everyone. I had a good weekend, Saturday was a little sketchy with some passing thunderstorms but the rest of the weekend was beautiful. I actually enjoyed having a day that was not so perfect because it made Saturday a leisurely day and gave me a chance to squeeze in a little studio time as well as getting a few chores done.
So today I have a ridiculously simple page for Gill's challenge at Art Journal Journey. The challenge is Nature's Wonders, and I made this page the other day for my Iceland travel journal.
In parts of Iceland there are black volcanic beaches. We visited on in the town if Vik on the south coast of the island. Although it was a beautiful day, it wasn't a day to lounge your bathing
suit, so basically we walked the beach.
I actually took this photo which inspired me to make this travel journal page. (And my new blog header.)
I used some black molding paste which I mixed with a little sand. And I die cut and added the feather. If I was smart I would have brought home that feather and put it in my journal, but I wasn't thinking that far in advance.
That's all, but black sand is one of natures wonders. (And if you don't know, it is formed when volcanic rock is ground and eroded into tiny little pieces.).
Here's a few more black sand beach photos.
I love this one with the little red roof church off in the background.
That's all for me today. Make your day a good one.
