Today I pulled together a collection of ephemera to use in my Ticket To Venice journal.
Beginning at the top left and going clockwise, here are the items I have gathered: some Hamly overlays, printed journal cards and tags from the class, old ledger papers, tea dyed book pages, printed postcards from Mary Ann, commercial labels and stickers, book covers (found this at our local Goodwill for $2), an embroidered patch of the Venetian flag, printed Italy digital postcards from an Etsy seller. In the center of the table I have tea dyed a piece of canvas, shipping tags and book pages (from the book I am using for the covers).
Here is a close up of the Venetian patch. The postcard at the top is vintage that I had in my huge stash of postcards that I inherited from my great-uncle. The Venice tag in the center I found on-line, I think it was from scrapbooking.com.
Here are the postcards that Mary Ann has been sending everyday. I printed them out on matte photo paper in different sizes to use throughout the journal.
I’m now off to begin the page and signature preparations.
I saw this quote posted on FB and knew I had to use it in a spread so I spent a few hours playing in the art studio and came up with this interpretation.
I call these donut flowers, big circles with layers of acrylic color.

This week’s list prompt from Hanna was Music (you love). I love shipping tags so I created another one to add into the journal. This tag was created using the Gelli Arts print plate that I tested out last week.
I love Christian Pop/Rock music. I find it to be so inspirational, especially while creating art. My list of favorite songs, at least for this week are:
This week’s List Journal prompt from Hanna and Tammy “Things I Know”. This was a tough one for me. I think I know lots of things, but quite often I find out that I really don’t know much.
Here is my interpretation of the prompt.

This weeks prompt for the List Journal project was to chart your favorite watercolor crayons. Mine are the Caran D’Ache Neocolor II. Some of my favorites are below (on the right side of the spread). These watercolor crayons are so easy to use, just color like a crayon then use a paintbrush with water to release their luscious color. Depending on the amount of color you lay down on the paper and the amount of water you use, the colors can be transparent or opaque.
