It was amazing all the things she packed into the cigar box. She also made lovely art journals (using file folders) for all 3 of us. Here is mine.
My BFF filled her art journal with lovely drawings and beautiful text that documented our trip - all the fun and crazy things that happened (such as finding a scrubby sponge in a restaurant salad). I tried to make a journal but feel I was less than successful. Here are a few of my pages.
I guess I need to practice art journaling, if that is really a priority. If I practice, I am sure I would improve and the process would become easier. But perhaps that just isn't my thing. I plan to finish my Paris journal and then move on to other things. Art journaling will have to wait for another time, I suppose, a time when the urge really hits me. Right now I want to concentrate of other things.
If you are an art journaler, you have my admiration. Keep up the good work!
