An integral part of our bigger trips for me is keeping journal. I go into a lot (too much) detail and spend about an hour each night writing everything up.
It is the only way I can ever remember all the little details. I love reading through them later. It is amazing what memories they jog.
This time I just took a naked journal and planned to find a nice fat quarter to use to cover it. I had no idea what type of design I would select. However, as soon as I saw this aboriginal art inspired fabrics in Albany I knew it would be perfect. The additional colours obviously represent the earth, sea and sky.
Once again I used Bloom’s tutorial for the basic construction. It is such an easy and effective method. I’m quite pleased with the outcome, although the colours look a bit washed out in the photo. The colours in the one above are much truer to life.
A finish for April.
