I'm back from England and Scotland!

...with heaps and heaps of reference photos for so many paintings!  More to follow ....

In the meantime, I made a slideshow to show my PALS group the altered art scrapbook I'm working on and thought I'd post it here, too.  I took a really old, big, outdated atlas and painted the pages (a few at a time), then attached the photos, writing, bling and decorations.  I could have just mounted computer prints of sections of the journal notes I wrote each night of the trip but thought that handwritten notes would look more personal. 

I had a great time and loved the trip.  England was awesome but Scotland was my absolute favourite.  I dropped out of the trip over to Rome and instead stayed three extra days in Edinburgh!

Thanks Ann, and yes, it was a truly memorable trip! I'd love to go back. In the meantime, I'll just keep working at this scrapbook. lol

Aaaaaah! it looks so special Deb! my first reaction was to want to slide my fingers over the pages to feel them, it sure must be amazing to hold the real book in your hands.
Now I'll go to read everything about the trip, is good to have you back!!!
