Introducing The Traveling Art Journal

Art Journaling is so diverse and easily adapted to each person’s preference and to each situation or traveling condition that it seems to be a no-brainer that this is the way to go – traveling that is.

I’ve been traveling more and more lately and have had a great time art journaling along the way.

I’ve noticed several things about art journaling that we probably all know, but when articulated can help us travel with the right stuff! For example a 2-week road trip to a family reunion would include different supplies than a hut-to-hut trek in the Alps reached by plane.

Art Journaling for an event is a little different from a chronological record of a trip covering several events, different responses to a situation or a longer time period.

Exploring what supplies and techniques are most versatile and travel friendly has been very interesting and I thought I would share what I learn as I go along with you.

For September the plan will to be to show a variety of journals made at the same event by different folk. Then in October if all goes well (and I can blog from Europe as planned) we’ll focus on a chronological journaling process of the entire trip…Like I said if all goes well.
