Heres the Gite that inspired me to sit down and try to and capture the beauty of it. From where I sat I could see a Wisteria cascading down and a Lavender growing in a little gap in the paving.
My small travelling kit. It consisted of a small Pink Pig plain journalling book which I had previously covered with chipboard embellishments and painted with Acrylic silks.
My pencil case slimmed down with just my favourite pencils. Journalling pens and stabila pencil and putty rubber. A small tin of Caran Dache Neocolor 11 a few paint brushes. I also included a Artist journaling book for some ideas. Just enough to fit into a small bag, so when there was a few minutes spare after travelling around I could sit and draw a few images and then finish later.
The front of my Travel Journal
Don't forget to pick up any information on places of interest, later I will use some of these to make a Journal page, it also helps you to remember some of the smaller details....
A Dark Room Door stamp I will include later with some info on the Famous Biscuits.
My first page which I sketched and painted at the Gite then added some Stamps And Stencils when I got home.
I have tried to blend the torn out picture from the leaflet in with the background using distress Inks and then some splatters over the whole page..
There are more pages to be done but since coming home at the weekend I haven't had much time, but I hope it inspires you to take a little kit with you where ever you travel.
Happy Crafting Holidays
