Art Journaling Your Travels Workshop
Would you like to expand your travel journal to include photos and memorabilia as well as your written words? Make your travel experiences memorable by keeping a travel art journal!
I love to take a journal with me when I travel and sit in the local cafes, people watch, and record my activities and thoughts. Over the last decade I started including collage and all of the paper ephemera one collects on trips. When I finish I have a 3-D journal packed full of photos, travel articles, restaurant and cafe menus, tickets, postcards and note cards -- colorfully spilling out of the pages!

"There is no better way to hold on to the memories of a wonderful trip than creating some kind of journal or album. In the past I have simply put together photos and labeled them with the place and date. This year I wanted to try something new. When I saw Virginia’s Travel Journal class offered, I jumped at the opportunity. Equipped with photos, business cards, maps, brochures and other ephemera gathered in my travels I went to the class not knowing where to begin. Virginia gave us a quick overview, showed us some samples then started demonstrating the wonderful, simple and effective techniques. She had tons of supplies including various types of paints, interesting rubber stamps, tricks for adding pages and on and on. We were all hooked and fascinated. It was so much fun that as soon as I returned home, I went to work finishing my travel journal. It is something I will cherish. Everyone who has seen the journal loves it. Thanks Virginia. I might even approach travel a new way as now I know how to put my memories into an Artful Travel Journal." -- Pat D.
