Sketchbook Revival: Day 14 Session 2

Abbey Sy’s (abbeys.com) session “Collage Travel Jounaling” is my happy place but for one key point…I haven’t travelled anywhere in years! ARGH!

I’m the journal geek who starts her journal for a trip months before the actual trip, so all the anticipation and planning go in the journal too.

I ended up having some fun with ephemera from magazines. I cut an envelope flap in half to make “fickets” (fake tickets).

“Flight: 2,469,321. Time: 1ish or 2ish. Leaving: MKE. Arriving: We hope so!. Destination: Elsewhere.”

The return ficket: “Flight: 37,492,337.51. Time 2:29 am. Leaving: RRG. Arriving: That’s the plan, don’t jinx us! Destination: MKE.”

Then there are some photos from places I’ve never been. That said, I have absolutely sat in a park with a cup of coffee—in a lot of places actually.

I labeled the town street picture “Anywhere, U.S.A.” Then I saw the Main Street in the corner….of course it is.

Why not a picture of Mongolia? That piece of ephemera has been in my ephemera envelope for 13 years and 7 months (I have no idea how long, but it’s been a loooong time). It came out of a copy of National Geographic…they have great maps! I love maps. The Trip Not Taken travelogue page even says so. It must be true.
