I decided to do a journal page based on a country I have always wanted to visit, that being Egypt, in Robyn's Travel the World Journal. I have called my layout "Sightseeing In Egypt". I printed an Egyptian dollar note and a map off the internet, drew a gold statue of one of their Gods, drew a pyramid and added texture with modelling paste. I also drew a couple of banners with hieroglyphics on them and as I didn't own any Egyptian cotton...lol...I used some cotton thread for a border. Hoping this is acceptable for you Robyn. Thank you.

I have found a new love and that's Air Dry Clay. I was inspired to make some of these mixed media clay hearts after watching Laurie Richardson Haley's video on you tube. Laurie used the polymer clay you bake in the oven which I didn't have any of but I did have some air dry clay so I decided to give it a go. I think they turned out fabulous. I have decorated them using scraps of drop paper, brayer wipe off paper and tissue paper. Added some paint here and there and then decorated them using wire, handmade bead, my altered domino and a few other bits and pieces I had laying around. It was a very relaxing and fun project to do.
