So here I am now, seven years later (wow I suddenly feel old), and I have all this stuff in shoe boxes. I have been art journaling like crazy for the past year and obsessing over other peoples' journals and websites and blogs and pictures. Travel journals have been of particular interest to me, because I haven't been out of the country since 2005 and urge to do so is almost unbearable. Suddenly, this past week, it dawned on me. I have all of this great stuff, all boxed up collecting dust... why am I not making a travel journal?? I am beyond excited to start this new project. And maybe soon I will take a trip (I have always wanted to fly to Europe alone with no plan and just go where my feet take me) and have a whole new box of stuff to work with. Here are some of the travel journals that have been inspiring me lately:
Mary Ann Moss... good lord. I am obsessed with her journals. I'd pay money to look through them in person. Seriously. Check our her Flickr page. Be sure you have at least an hour or so to kill before doing so.
After you are done oogling Mary Ann Moss's Flickr page, please dedicate another hour to Ashley Connelly's blog, The Creative Place. You know those blog's that just inspire you to make something immediately? This is one of them. Sometimes the gratitude I have for being a right-brained creative weirdo is overwhelming.
