Hi everyone. Happy middle of the week already. I hope everyone is having a great week.
Today I want to share some pages from my latest travel journal project. I like to collect bits and pieces when I am away on a journey, and then when I come home I like to make a travel journal with those items as well as some things from my stash.
This latest trip journal will be bound between 2 old photo album covers. I found the old album when I was cleaning out supplies for the art room redo back in the winter. The front cover has great detail; I'll show you that later. The size of the cover means the pages are perfect for 8.5x11 inch paper. One thing I particularly like is that the finished journal will be tied together through those 2 holes you can see on the right side of my page. Since this isn't an already pre-bound book, I can work on individual pages in no particular order, and then, because they have punched holes, I can stack them and bind them once I am finished.
I made a page on the inside of the front cover, and that page works for Elle's Fairytales, Folktales and Fables: Tell Me a Story challenge at Art Journal Journey. The cowboy of the American west has become a legend and part of American folklore.
Now even though I didn't visit Texas nor did I see any longhorns, I did see a lot of cattle.
