Hi everyone, Thanks for stopping by my blog.
I have one last page for Art Journal Journey this month. The theme has been maps (hosted by Mary), and so I used a map of Star Island to make both my big hotel building and the clouds. The clouds are actually the key for the place numbered on the map. I did paint over the map with some watered down acrylic paint, and they way my photo is, you may not see much of the map underneath.
You can see it a bit better here.
This is made in my summer journal. If you've been by this past week you've seen my post of the Star Island, but if you missed it, here's the link: Island Hopping.
Thought I would share my last few photos from my visit.
These little stone cottages are so quaint, aren't they?
The island is pretty bare. I don't know what the settlers who lived there year round through the 1800's burned for fuel in the winter. Maybe they burned whale oil or dried seaweed. Hmmm.
And if you don't have a boat, this is how you'd travel to the island.
The ferry is really full because a crowd were on their way for a week retreat.
Anyhow, that's all for me today. I'm off to visit my mom.
Have a great day!
