I created a travel journal of memories to capture my experiences and adventures in Greece. I brought a small amount of supplies with me and started the journal while I was on vacation. It was completed at home, where I added additional pages, included pictures from my trip, created the cover, and bound the pages. I bound the loose pages in a vintage book cover using my own twist on a technique that I read about in LK Ludwig's great book Mixed Media Nature Journals.
Just about every page includes journaling but that may not be obvious from the photos. On most pages, the words are hidden under flaps, in mini envelopes, inside vellum, behind maps, or in small handmade pamphlets. I preferred to focus on the images but in this way I was able to include the written story as well.
I have posted below photographs of the journal and of a number of the pages inside from the first half of the book. Each page beings back a vivid image of one or more of the magical moments that I experienced in Greece. Please click on the images to enlarge to see the details.
