As you may already know, we really love to journal. We take our journals with us everywhere.....last year we journalled about our gifts from the sea.
This year we brought them up on the mountains
This year, thanks to an old issue of Martha Stewart Kids, I came up with two new formats which I thought would be fun to try.
Lou brought along little jewelry gift boxes, paper that she had cut to fit into the box and had folded accordion-style, scissors, a glue stick, and gel pens. She cut up various brochures and made a page for each day. She was also able to layer in some little pressed flowers and other treasures she found each day.
She covered the top of the box with the beautiful image of Acadia which we picked up in an art gallery and the bottom of the box with a map.
Helen got excited about making tiny little books with covers made from various maps and brochures. She made a little book for each day of her trip and then put them into plastic baseball card sleeves.
My journal kit includes: gel pens, aquarelle water pencils, pencil sharpener, and a niji waterbrush. It's all you need.....
along with a great view.
