Look Behind You


While in NYC for a week, I worked in my ever-present travel journal. I used a journal made by Pamela Huntington  that I had purchased a couple of years ago at Artfest. It was small, so I was able to fill the pages easily and quickly. I knew that with my busy schedule upon returning from New York, I wouldn't get a chance to work on it again, so I worked madcap in the morning before we left for the day and in the evening before turning into bed. On our nine-hour flight home on Sunday, I added some final text and smudging.

Here is what the dining table at the apartment looked like upon arrival:

 
And then during the week we transformed it to look like this:

My friend Vicki created her journal using pieces of cardboard from cereal boxes, making a sturdy and loose substrate. Here is her lovely journal at the time we left on Sunday afternoon:
