Beach Journal_2017_Part 2 (Winter)

This is part 2 of my ongoing beach journal. It covers the winter here in Australia. Now it is the 2nd day of spring, the beach is even more inviting and bring out a whole new vista and animals to match! I have covered some of the pastel jottings with tracing paper to project them. So there are some scans of the paper closed and opened for perspective. Enjoy!

Art Journal: Junk In Art Out: Spreads 4 to 9

I receive a large amount of junk mail and most of it usually becomes landfill. Not any more. I've decided to turn it into collage art for a series of Journals that will keep on going as long as people decide to send me stuff I either really have no need for or, stuff that just has me shaking my head and asking 'why?' Here are the next 6 pages.

The first three spreads can be found here:

Pages 1 to 3

Beach Journal_2017 Part 1

As with my geological journal, if I go down to the beach (a short walk from my house) I always have my beach journal with me. It contains memories, photo's sketches, observations about flora and fauna, weather phenomena and even archaeological facts about my local area. This is only Part 1 of my 2017 journal. The rest will be uploaded later in the year.
