Some links and thoughts

Today I read this cool post from Marit (and Julie), about the differences between art journaling and scrapbooking. A topic I have given much thought to when I first started art journaling in 2007. Marit seems to hold pretty much the same views as I do. I'm in the post, can you spot me? Julie Balzer is pretty inspiring, by the way!

And if you're into travel journaling you might want to check out Ali's new workshop. I'm working on a pdf on traveljournals myself, I'm leaning towards making it available for free, don't feel up for the hassle of marketing and competing and I just want it to inspire people. I love love love traveljournals and did a lot of them in 2008 and 2009. I really enjoyed making them but we had to cut back on the amount of bagage and our vacationdays are pretty full with sightseeing, I just couldn't find the time and energy to do anything more than write. I'm thinking about giving it another try during our trip to London this spring, maybe in a way that will allow me to incorporate it into our scrapbookalbum later.

Sorry mensjes, ben een beetje lui vandaag, geen vertaling, zal er geen gewoonte van maken.

Reactie van Marit

Dank Thinkie, voor je lieve woorden en extra 'exposure' - en ja, ik vond die pagina waar jij op de foto bijzit wel een mooi beeld geven van mijn manier van journalen. Ik had al zo'n idee dat jij je ook niet in een 'scrapbook' of 'journal' hokje liet duwen hihi... Ik reis zelf amper, maar ben toch benieuwd naar je ervaringen en tips. En deze lente naar Londen? Kijk, dát zou ik nu ook leuk vinden! Geniet van je weekend!
