Cayman Journal

As you may recall...I took this journal to the Cayman Islands with me for my week stay. When I left home it was white.
Emily had two photos that I could play with....that were taken from her backyard. I put them on the front and back. Then added paint to the edges.
 

My goal for this journal is to take it with me every time i go...and add photos, ephemera, and art play in it.

The journal is filled with mixed papers from vintage books to new books. The above sea turtle was done on a atlas page.



Each page will get worked on over time. The above page now has baby sea turtle photos all over it.... with the doodles peeking out.   No hurry to finish this journal. I have 3 trips now of photos to add....and more in the future I am sure.

Thanks for stopping by...

I just have to admire your journal and all the time and creativeness you put into it. The little turtle you are hold is adorable! And a Stingray City? Wow - I'm very fond of stingrays. I met one at the Monterey Aquarium and he would not leave me alone!! It kept pestering me to pet him. It was so weird - just like a little dog! He felt so soft - and weird at the same time.

Thank you so much for sharing these pages, they're beautiful. I never thought to paint my pages as a base. Are you printing your pages at home? I'm curious what you're photos are on to be able to draw on them like you did.
