I've been feeling a bit low recently, so what better to do than taking out my art journal and dream myself away a little.
One of my favourite colours, a shipping tag, a postcard and some other stamps, and a strip of paper with a copy of the title of The New York Times sent me away to my two favourite places, Sweden and Great Britain.
I'm going to visit both of them this year, so I guess it's a good year. I'm certainly looking forward to both trips, even though they're still quite some time away.
It's been a busy week, but it's Thursday evening at last, and I've got a veeery long 5 day weekend ahead of me to look forward to. And tomorrow I'll be off for a day trip to Germany, including even a little visit to Sweden for a few hours. I'll tell you more about it during the weekend, and hopefully with a few great photos to show :).
Posting this today already but linking it up with Paint Party Friday tomorrow, and looking forward to visiting you all during the weekend!

sorry to hear you've been feeling low but am glad you used art as a way to escape for a little while. this is beautiful, there is something so calming about it and how it looks sort of vintage. I hope you enjoy all the trips you have coming up - where in Britain are you visiting?ReplyDelete

I think there is something in the air for artists right now. I have been to several blogs where people are feeling low. Hope your trip to Germany gives you a relaxing break! Purple is such a great color esp. with your tag and white accents! Love how you used the New York Times lettering! Did you do an image transfer for that?ReplyDelete
