Time to Travel - Time for A Journal

I'm going on holidays real real soon, I have found the best way to remember an amazing holiday is not only with photos but with a Holiday/Art/Junk Journal.  There will be daily diaries, photos, bits and pieces on info stuck in and drawings etc.  My journals are handmade and hand bound.

The cover for this journal has been made from canvas, primed with gesso, and then decorating with acrylic and water paints, texture paint, stamps, doodles, my drawings. flowers, buttons and a plaited emrboidery cord.

With the journal fully open showing the whole cover.
Here is one of the double pages I have prepared for my journal.  I do not profess to being a stamper, in fact it is not something I really like doing, probably because I never seem to get a clear print, but I do have stamps and ocassionally use them, this was one such time.  A number of different stamps have been used to create the scene.  I have also used a micropen and a sharpie for some details.  The vine in the middle has been created by colouring the binding with the sharpie.
