We did a bit of traveling in February so my art journaling time was limited. Instead, I made some Traveler’s Notebook inserts to take along with me and I sketched and painted in those. I love using TN inserts for traveling. It’s a perfect place to document a trip with journaling and sketches together in one place. Hooray for travel sketching!
Travel with friends
Last year we traveled to Savannah, Georgia with some friends of ours to attend a wedding. It was one of the best trips my husband and I have taken together and I made my first ever TN to take along for journaling. Here’s a sketch of Paula Dean’s restaurant where we had lunch one afternoon.
In February we went to Nashville with some of the same friends so I decided I would just add to that same journal instead of making another. We toured the Ryman while we were there and I sketched a little bit of the auditorium.
I still have some things I want to add to the journal so maybe I’ll do a flip-through when I finish it. But hopefully that will be after a trip to Memphis. =)
Sketching at the ocean
The same week we came home from Nashville, we packed up again and headed to Panama City Beach. The first day of that trip was quite eventful and long but everything smoothed out after that. The ocean is my most favorite place to be. I love the smells, the sounds, the views… I just feel home when I’m at the water. This was probably my favorite trip yet, too. It was so relaxing and we did just about nothing. Lots of days at the beach. We ate dinner out a few times, but mostly we just enjoyed being at the ocean. Of course I spent some time sketching in the sand. It was wonderful.
Art Journaling in Wanderlust
Abstract Floral – Week 7
I have to back up and add week 7 of Wanderlust! Sorry I missed it in the last update. Claire Bremner taught a wonderful class on abstract floral painting. Her artwork is gorgeous. I love everything about it. There’s a mid century folk arty quality that makes me so happy. I knew I would enjoy this class. Doodling and watercolor are two of my favorite things! I’m pretty sure this is one style I will be playing with quite a bit. As you can see, I need lots of practice! lol
Here’s a couple pages of practice from that class. I like to keep that kind of thing in a traveler’s notebook.
Interested in Wanderlust? I highly recommend it! You can find out more at Everything Art.
