Sketchbook Revival: Day 14 Session 2

Abbey Sy’s ( 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.
