Holiday art journal/sketchbook all filled up.

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

    This Holiday journal is so beautiful Clare. I love every page you showed here but my all time favorite is the one with the outbuilding/garage and the moon. All my favorites in one spread…….old barn type structures, the shore, a boat and the moon. Just lovely my dear friend. Your art never disappoints my soul.
