I filled my holiday sketchbook! I made the sketchbook before I went on holiday at the beginning of June, the post about that is here.
I didn’t put a million pages in because I wanted to be able to fill it and I could have done with a few more to be honest!
On the inside cover I swatched the paints I took and for the inside ephemera I used books I found in the ‘outside’ section of Parnassus books in Yarmouthport, MA. This is where the less worthy books reside and prices don’t exceed $3.00. Bargain! I bought a 1938 book called Gloucester and Cape Ann for $2.00 and The American Almanac Year-Book Cyclopedia and Atlas for 1903 for $3.00. Both full of pictures I could use.
I also found a tub of vintage photos at the Wellfleet flea market, so I used some of them in my art journal along with stickers and bits and bobs I found along the way. I even managed to get a print from a crocheted doily I found at the flea market.
Do you use a sketchbook or art journal on holiday? I like that I have the record I have made no matter how abstract it ends up!
Happy Wednesday x
