Hi everyone. Happy Sunday to you. I'm having a quiet low-key weekend. How about you?
Today I have a spread from my Iceland travel journal to share. I actually photographed this spread in 2 separate images, because for one thing, these pages in my journal don't want to lay flat. I also thought because the second page needs a bit of explaining it would be better to show the pages separately.
The overall general theme is birds. This first page mostly uses some old postage stamps that I had from 2016 when I went on my first Iceland trip. The stamp down on the bottom right is one I picked up on my most recent trip.
The next page ties in with birds, sort of. I added the white candy wrapper image because not only did I enjoy that candy but they reminded me of bird's eggs. Well maybe not if you broke them open. grin. The red-throated loon (or diver) is cut out of a brochure and was a new-to-me bird that I saw.
I also added in a little journaling tag. This tag is taped in between the 2 pages. On the back I wrote about some of the birds I saw but did not have stamps to share. The bird on that taped-in-tag is NOT a bird I saw in Iceland but I liked it and it's size so I added it.
You can see the book paper (Icelandic writing) on both pages. I attached the gas receipt because it was interesting with all the different numbers that showed up on it, and also because the paper was so thick compared to what we usually get in my area. Does it fit in with birds? Not really, but whenever we made a snack purchase we did get receipts so it does tie into my page. And even if it doesn't tie in, it looks good on the page. grin
I also added the girl. She was on a brochure I picked up on my trip to Charleston, SC in May, but I thought she looked like she could be in Iceland with that scarf she is wearing.
Since I have those book pages, I am linking up to Elle's Books, Cat and Tea challenge at Art Journal Journey.
Today I also have some more Iceland photos to share. Sorry for you ornithologists out there, these are not bird photos. But if you like stunning vistas along the ocean, these photos are probably for you.
I'm also linking up to Gillena's Sunday Smiles.
That's all for me today. Have a great rest of your weekend.
