Welcome to another edition of the Traveling Journal i apologize for the delay in between posts as the journal took a little rest in transit but is now back on its way again!! It recently stopped in Toronto with the lovely Jennifer and here are her pages!!
Im always completely blown away when i receive images of the girls holding the journal and Jennifers pages are just as amazing i love the mosaic design, so beautiful!!
As theatre is a huge passion of hers she made the mosaic out of lighting gels which are used to change the stage lighting and sketched a design over the top!! i love that she used her passion as inspiration and it also gives me an idea for using all my photography light gels i never use anymore…So now the journal has already been sent to the next lovely lady, i cant wait to see what her pages will be like!!
Remember everyone you will get the chance to own this gorgeous piece of art so make sure you are reading up on the ladies contributing and the stories behind each page!! I wish i could keep it!!

Sara – ILLINOIS
Welcome to another edition of the Traveling Journal its been slowly making its way around and its last stop was with Sara from Chicago, Illinois. Sara has a blog called Its about the look where she posts cute outfits so pop in and say hi to her!! she also did a blog post about the journal walking you through each of her pages and her inspiration behind it, such an adorable read!!!
I fell in love with her hand painted picture of the birds in the sky it looks so magical and i may have a little obsession with bird silhouettes, i also loved reading the quote from the Alchemist too.. i seriously am always blown away whenever i open my emails to find pictures of the journal the ladies who are a part of this little project are so talented so thank you XX I also had a blogger friend tell me that this project has inspired her to start sketching again which i was pretty chuffed about..
I hope your all tracking the travels of this little journal there are still more ladies to come and more beautiful art to see and at the end of it all you can have the chance to own this amazing piece of art!!

Julie – Seattle…
The next stop for the traveling journal was to visit the cute as a button Julie from Seattle in WA, She has a fashion blog called Mint and Mellow which has the most amazing photos and detailed descriptions of all her outfits!! As well as her outfits she always has the most amazing location spots too…so pop on over and say hi!!
How amazing are her pages!! (I have a feeling im going to be repeating myself with all the pages) but honestly when i saw them i had an instant feeling of warmth and pretty much wished i had her creative genius myself!! i am in love with the third page, the Polaroid and envelope is perfect and proudly sends her love from Seattle..the pictures match the feeling of the pages to a T… magical and wonderfully nostalgic.. makes you want to curl up and read the journal with a hot cup of tea!!
If you are wondering how she came up with her pages, she wrote a very detailed description with steps on how to achieve the look yourself!! she also delves into the story behind each page too which is a cute read!! so go on..take a look!!
I am going to have a really really hard time putting the journal as a giveaway when it has finished its route, i kinda want it for myself ha ha!! but i know, its not about me now is it!! i hope your all tracking the journal and looking forward to when you can enter to win it!!!
This journal is turning out to be a little book of positive love and inspiration..i cant wait to see what the next lady does!! xx
Kara – Issaquah WA
Well im sure your all wondering where the Traveling Journal has been and since leaving the sleepy town of Perth it was shipped off to the gorgeous miss Kara in Issaquah WA (who is also a Graphic Design Student too), when i had the thought of doing a little project like this i was just excited to see what little doodles and scribbles people would add in, but when Kara sent me images of her pages i was pretty blown away..she has a real talent for bringing blank pages to life, just look at all the little details…i just couldn’t wait to share the images with you!!
The Octopus is pretty adorable right? Kara has also just kicked off a pretty fabulous blog karabou-creations.blogspot.com where she has handy little tips for bringing new life to clothes and of course her artwork so make sure you pop on over to say hi to her.. Its so exciting meeting creative and wonderful ladies like Kara and swapping ideas and creative inspirations i cant wait to see what the other ladies contribute to the Journal..I hope you all enjoy seeing it too..There is plenty more to come so keep your eyes peeled!!
