090219 This Week_Venice
I nearly always have fun when I open a new page of my journal... But sometimes I REALLY HAVE FUN! This page is one of those occasions – can you tell? (working fast with not much attention to detail is one of the keys!)
This week I was looking through a few journals from this time last year and the pages that I enjoyed re-visiting the most were the ‘This Week’ spreads that I sometimes did... A bit of a collage backdrop for dumping random thoughts or trivial events during the week. So I am going to start the practice again – of course some of the text needs to be obscured though none of it is that personal as my journal always gets handed around my friends.
Anyway, this week the spread is very architectural. I am trying to decide where to go on my overseas trip this year – it was going to be a long 3 month adventure but now just looks like it will be a short one. I am longing to go back to Venice again. I had a wonderful week there in Jan 06 (before my sketching-on-location-days) and spent 3 months beforehand researching its architecture. I even prepared my own architectural guide! A bit rusty on some of the names but looking at a map brings back so many memories and a vivid picture of the spaces and buildings.
So here are some scribble sketches that I used to inspire my random ramblings this week.(I know the week is not over yet...got to work out where I am going to put my bits for tomorrow...)
