The Buckingham Palace Guards

I'm just finishing up another wonderful Imaginary Trip with Laure Ferlita to England. I'll be opening my sketchbook to share a few of my journal pages with you .... 

I'm so glad that our adventure began with a visit outside Buckingham Palace so we could capture a view of the Palace Guards. They were quite a sight -- just like I had seen in all of the tour books, and there was a constant stream of visitors outside the Palace gates just trying to catch a glimpse of these popular Palace Guards.

Claire, nice job. I love it. I know the trip must have been amazing. I hope to take one of Laure's trips soon. Your work is so creative.

Krista - I'm going to take Laure's new Artful Journaling classes. The classes keep me going and I'm always learning something new. I'll have to drop by your blog and see what you've been up to.
