Take Me To The Mountains: Travel Art Journal Part 1
When my boys were little, I made mini albums all the time. My first born even got one for every month of his life during his first year. But as life got busier I stopped making albums and focused more on art journaling. This year, one of my goals has been to complete some of the projects that have been sitting, lonely in my to-do bin. Our family took a trip to Colorado Springs back in 2015 and the pictures have been sitting, waiting for a home. I finished it just in time for us to take another family vacation to that beautiful state.
A few things that I loved about Colorado were the mountains. We have mountains here in PA but they are different than the ones in Colorado. The ones there had less trees so you could see more of the outline of the mountains. I loved the lack of humidity. For a girl that went to collage in Florida you would think I could handle it, but I can’t. Humidity is not my friend. Hair wise and mood wise. Also, while shopping in Colorado, I found so many interesting shops that are not available in our rural region of PA. The shopping was a culturally diverse experience which made me feel like I was somewhere else in the world due to the smells, colors and music surrounding me. I could spend a week there just browsing the shops. But the best part was spending time with family.
To create this mini album, I used 8×8 patterned paper with coordinating embellishments. I used my bind-it-all to bind the book together.
I am joining the T-day ladies over at Elizabeth and Bleubeard’s. My drink for today is one of my new birthday teas. Hubby knows me so well. This is a pear with white and green tea. The aroma is amazing due to the pear.
Happy Tea Day,
