Holiday Journaling

As some of you may already know, I am off on holidays in the beautiful Austrian Salzkammergut.

Today we had a wonderful day at the lake and I went swimming, enjoyed the lovely view at the Höllengebirge (transl.: "Hell Mountains" ;) and tried to capture some of it in a watercolor painting. (Watercolors and my HeroArts letter stamp set are the only things I have been taking with me .... I thought that some aquarell painting exercising wood definitely do me some good ;)


As you can see, when the painting was finished I decided to add some written thoughts and script stamping, to create a kind of journal page.



As I am totally unexperienced with art journaling, I hope you like it anyway!







I hope you are all doing well and have a wonderful creative time!

Hugs,
