Art Challenge: Recording Memories
Journal Prompt: Taking the Road Less Traveled
The journal prompts for June were perfect for me. As a committed traveler, I have an endless stash of goodies to use, and I am in a "Use It Up" mode. Cleaning out my files, I found my written journal for my trip to Paris in August of 2004. The prompt, Taking the Road Less Traveled, was perfect given that I was traveling standby on a Continental pass, always unsure where I would end up. This trip started off as a jaunt to Rome and changed to a sojourn in Paris when I found the flight to Rome full. Our trip came to an end when we saw on CNN our home town posted as the target for a giant hurricane. I tried to simulate the original journal page by pasting old ledger paper in my journal and transcribing the entry. My handwriting is unfortunate.
In my stash, I found a lot of old scrapbooking supplies that I planned on discarding...too cute, but I decided just to stick them to this page. I added a vintage postcard to capture the scene. (I couldn't save it forever)
