Travel Journaling ~ on T Tuesday

Travel Journaling is the theme for
The Documented Life Project for June 2015.
This week the challenge was 
illustrative journaling. Of course I chose
to draw, but there are many other ways of
illustrating your experiences while traveling.
Collaging illustrations from travel brochures,
 maps, and photos would all be great possibilities.

As usual, I did some sketching while hubby
drove the car.  It's kind of amazing the
 things you can see along the road
 to draw ~ when you are looking
for them!  The crumpled orange barrel
still makes me smile...a classic icon for
driver frustration.  Please do click on the image
to see the details, especially the
'Blasting Ahead' sign!
(There were no signs of actual 'blasting'
as we drove through the area, however,
thank goodness!)

We had a wonderful time in Tennessee for
a couple of days, just visiting our son's family
and spending time at the pool. 

I draw in my calendar/agenda...after 
participating in The
Documented Life Project 2014, I wasn't
ready to give up decorating an 
agenda-type journal.  This isn't
 nearly as complex as last 
year's, but has enough space to draw
and collage when the inspiration strikes.

Linking up with Bleubeard and Elizabeth
for the T Tuesday blog hop, in which
we share a beverage, and what we've
been 'up to.'  Visit the link to
join us for tea! (or coffee, or whatever)

Artist Trading Card: watercolor & pen

  I hope you are having
some summer fun, and 
enjoying each moment 
to the fullest!

Break Time

Sharing my clear glass coffee mug
with the gang over at Elizabeth's
T Tuesday blog hop...
Mickey looks like he's enjoying
his break with a doughnut!
This mug appeals to me
just because it's clear glass. Whatever
beverage you are drinking shows
through, which is kind of fun
...and of course you can't
go wrong with Mickey Mouse!
Again, the proportions of the mug 
aren't quite right, and trying to convey
the clear glass reflections
is always a challenge. But the more
you practice, the more it helps.
At least in theory...

Whether you're having something
cold to drink...

or a magic potion...

join us for a beverage and
a chat over at Elizabeth's blog.
You can even visit some classic
blog posts for the second time around
as a bonus.
