Sooooo i went to Boston way back in july and since then i have planned a travel art journal post....hmm a month in the making it better be good right????? I often do searches on peoples travel journal supplies and i mostly come up empty handed......i can only find water color journal stuff.....What about the all around art journalers????? Here's what i took with me and some commentary on what worked and what didnt :)
Heres my airline approved quart size ziplock bag....i was amazed at how much fit!!!!!
Misc contents of my bag not otherwise mentioned :) I used everyone of these items.....i would like to find a smaller roll of tape...or make my own....it was bulky.....the bulldog clip is a must....
inside of my carry on was a super cool hello kitty lunchbox that housed all of my random things. this box fit perfectly next to my journal on the plane and it made it easy to find what i needed!!!
I always bring a 8 1/2 x 11 page protector filled with random bits with me....i also add random bits to my stack while im gone. there are a few stencils in here, vintage paper, scrapbook paper, mini letter stickers, journal spots, printed words, tags, punchinella etc.......
Things to add next time:
paper towels.....just a few folded
a washcloth to wipe my brushes
a travel cup....which i bought while i was there
my heat gun....i thought it was bulky but im to impatient to leave home with out it
shipping tags.....totally forgot to add a few of these in
maybe a ranger spray ink or 2..... i kinda missed them.....i was thinking about filling mini misters with them
more gel medium.....that tiny container wasnt enough
things to subtract:
not sure on this one...... i felt kinda good about the variety of things i brought and i used most of it
Narrowing down what you use all the time is key.....bring what makes you happy (even if it is too much ).....make a mess on the airplane.....it starts interesting conversations with strangers....journaling with your friends in utter silence is pretty much priceless......those moments stick with you :)
What do you bring with u on the road???? what are your must haves???? I would love to see some pictures!
