I have been trying for years to find a way on how to do something like this with a sketchbook. Everything I have tried has either been way too simple or way too complicated. I was really wanting to do something like this for my trip to Amsterdam back in August, but didn't have time to figure it out. Thankfully, I discovered Samantha's book on Amazon. Instead of starting on the day I got it, I decided to go back in time and do the Amsterdam trip first. They take up a couple of spreads. Then I will jump ahead to now!

The next step would be to add color to this page! Thank you Samantha!

Here are my completed pages from my trip to Amsterdam! I like each one for different reasons. I left space for traditional "journaling" in order to capture a continuous story of the trip rather than just pieces of it. It was my first international trip so there was a lot to take in. I am happy I was able to put some of the souvenirs in there by way of the collage technique!

Christmas Day turned into a collage of wrapping paper and the "busy day" method. Except I applied it to the gifts that were received :)

These pages have been a lot of fun to put together. I am not a person that can get a page in everyday, especially since I have a full-time job and I make art pieces outside of work. I am unable to make a page each day. I make one every few days, especially if there are things I want to remember. I have also combined days into one page if I just worked in my studio for most of the day. My family and friends love this way too much that they tell me what they want me to draw!!
