Holiday Challenge

A few years back now I was asked to keep a daily journal/sketchbook as part of a course that I was following. I enjoyed the process very much and continued on long after the end of the course. The Journals make interesting reading and my artwork is a useful reference. However, it is now several years since I seriously did any work on a Journal and so I thought that my upcoming holiday to Spain - did I mention we are off to Spain!! - would be an ideal opportunity to make a new start.
So hence my holiday challenge.
I have a small, A6, plain boring sketchbook which I intend to transform with lots of sketches, notes and colour.


It shouldn't be too difficult to fill at least one double spread a day should it?


I have packed my favourite pens and a small selection of paints and crayons.


Of course, the reason I am blogging about this is that I need to be seen to make a commitment - otherwise it will never happen!

Hope everyone has a great month of February.

Ooh how lovely! I'm afraid to commit on my blog to something, I never seem to follow through - but if I don't commit on my blog, I'll do it! Maybe I'm just contrary, lol. Enjoy Spain!

Best wishes on your successful journaling!! That's a great idea and I bet it will prove useful, especially with your developing embroidery/design ideas.
Have a great time in Spain!

I love the idea of journaling. I do a lot of words on the computer, but I don't use the sketch book I bought for that purpose. In fact, I may have given it to my son recently.
