Welcome to spring, everyone. I hope it looks like it in your part of the world. I'm back joining Yvonne at Meggy's Way, this month's host at Art Journal Journey with her theme of Out and About.
Today we are continuing our trip to Iceland, where we will visit both Reykjavik and Húsavík.
This reminds me of several photos my blogger friend Erika at BioArtGal shared with us when she visited there. The volcanic eruptions from bygone days are prevalent, especially around the peninsula.
Húsavík is located on the north coast of Iceland. It is a tourist attraction, as well as a fishing village. The wooden church seen in the background is Húsavík's most famous landmark.
For those of you who visit from Norway, please note the name is the same as one of Norway's cities, except the little marks over some of the vowels. Unfortunately, I failed to add these by hand after I printed the word.
The homes in Reykjavik are colorful, especially the rooftops. Because there is so much land, the city is spread out, and there is ample room between homes. According to Wikipedia:
Reykjavík is a spread-out city: most of its urban area consists of low-density suburbs, and houses are usually widely spaced. The outer residential neighbourhoods are also widely spaced from each other.Materials I used for this spread are a used file folder I colored using a paint marker, three doilies, three images from three travel magazines, and computer generated text.
Thank you for visiting today as we take this imaginary trip to Reykjavik and Húsavík in Iceland. Now let's visit Art Journal Journey and see who else has been out and about today.
