Tourist Trip

An art journal is an excellent place to do a mixed media collage of bits and pieces collected during a family vacation. Instead of stashing everything into a big pile that you (likely) never look at again, cut the bits & pieces out to show the BOLD TYPE best bits of our time with our son and daughter-in-law and made a collage. The memories have a longer "shelf life" because they have become part of my journal.

The post-it-note "Go Somewhere" was on my calendar months ahead of time; great sushi; a postcard of Portland cut into strips and glued on top of other memories; bits from the tourist brochures we collected during the trip.
