Today I've finally found time to create something for Art Journal Journey. My dear friend Erika, aka BioArtGal is this month's host and I am so glad I found time to participate. I even managed to create two spreads, too.
The nice thing about Erika's theme, which is Journeys, is I can once again create a few pages in my 7-Continents altered book, the book I have proclaimed to be the longest WIP in history (at least in MY history, because I started this 7 continent journey back in 2003). So today I give you # 67 on my bucket list of places I want to visit.
Let's head to St. Petersburg in Russia
where we encounter the famous Resurrection Church also called Savior on the Spilled Blood.
This famous church is a highlight of any tour of St. Petersburg.
I apologize, but the used file folders I chose for this were too long for my scanner. That will teach me to measure before I create a background. I call this side "To Russia with Love."
The church is part of the St. Isaac's complex.
It is famous for its many mosaic tiles, possibly the most in the world.
Also on this page
which I've named "From Russia with Love,"
is a picture of Catherine the Great's country home which is outside St. Petersburg.
Materials used include a used legal size file folder, paint applied with a gift card, a Micron ink pen (that didn't want to write on the paint), and images from various travel magazines.
Thanks for taking this journey with me to St. Petersburg today. I hope you will also visit Art Journal Journey for some incredible journeys, including real, imagined like mine, and implied.
