Preparing for the Journey is Half the Fun!

I am leaving on a jet-plane tomorrow morning... my bags are packed.  I find that preparing my journals for an upcoming trip is so much fun!  Part of the Provence, France group came to my studio a couple weeks ago and we made very creative cover photos for our journals.  We used paintings that we had already painted and then made image transfers with a splash of mica powders to give them some pizzazz!
I also took my little watercolor journal apart, as I love to do, and added pages of painted black gesso and Strathmore drawing pages.  I have a Bind-it-all that I use to make the correct sizes for the hole punches.

We are going to Provence, France. There are 14 of us in our group. We will be painting in Vaison la Romaine,
Gordes, Les Beaux de Provence, St. Remy de Provence, Roussillon and Isle sur la Sorgue. All beautiful and spectacular places!
