We just got back from a week in New Hampshire. Our friend Franny invited us to spend time in her cozy 1920's era cabin on Lower Kimball Pond next to the Maine border.
For this native coastal Californian it was an amazing treat to see snow, frozen rivers and lakes and survive 17 below!
I stocked up on "all things snow" - paper, rusty(!) snowflakes and pine trees, ribbon, brads, vintage New Hampshire postcards and Faber Castel Artist pens in ivory and indanthrene blue. I prepped several pages before we left using beige acrylic and a blue glaze from Golden. I also stenciled on a few of the pages using doilies and spray paint.
After a walk in the snow, it was perfect to sit by the fire, pull out all the supplies and spend time writing, cutting and pasting and creating another travel journal.
We had a great time, but it's good to be back in warmer temperatures. We have packed away the big coats and snow boots until next time!
