I am new here, so this is my first time sharing!  Last January I had the good fortune of spending a few weeks in India.  This is the visual journal I created for the trip. I did about 1/2 of the work while I was travelling and 1/2 of the work at home.  It is still very much a work in progress.  I want to add photos I took during the trip, but it is a year later and I have still yet to get those printed!!  Lots more in there, but this is a start:

This is such a special travel journal. Did you make the cover or did the journal come like that? And if you bought it- where from?
Keep up the lovely work Smiley

Thanks Pheebee!  The journal is from India, I recieved it as a gift from someone who went to prior to my trip, so it has been there and back at least twice!  It is handmade  paper with flower petals and pretty fibers all throughout.  The cover is made from scraps of vintage saris, some pieces are embroidered and beaded so it has a nice texture.  I tied it all together with an old shoelace!

That's just gorgeous! It looks like you had a wonderful time.

I'm going to India in a bit over a month (counting down the days) and while I was planning on keeping a visual journal, you've got me extra inspired now. Thank you!
