I know this is wimpy, but I simply had to join Yvonne of Meggy's Way, our wonderful host at Art Journal Journey this month. In case you didn't know, Yvonne wants us to get off our computers and go out and about.
So although I put this together in less than three hours, here is my first time out and about this month.
As you can see, we are headed to beautiful Bali, which is in Indonesia. Technically it is an island and province of Indonesia. The province includes the island of Bali and a few smaller islands.
The capital of Bali is Denpasar. Although tourism is a big part of Bali's economics, due to unrest and wars, often causing tourist to be caught in the crossfire, tourism is less than ideal since the mid-2000s.
Materials included a used file folder, which I always use for my 7 Continents altered book, handmade shimmering mists, three images from three different travel magazines, and a black Sharpie pen.
Thanks for joining me today as I start to get out and about with Yvonne and Art Journal Journey. I hope to see you there, too.
As an aside, this is my old scanner. Late last night, Scott and I finally found a way for it to talk to my new computer. The one my friend Scott ordered for me didn't work for my purposes, so I gave it to him. He didn't realize I scan a great deal of 3-D art (like my altered books), and the scanner he got me was made for scanning documents. My new laser printer works incredibly, and my old ink jet that I've had since 2000, is humming along nicely. Since both printers and my old scanner work great, I'm a very happy camper. A bit sick still, but incredibly happy.
