Those of us who joined in Susan's Amazing Art Journal Race are continuing monthly destinations in the Monthly Art Journal FaceBook group. (I just realized I never posted my Amazing Race Art journal so I'll do that soon.)
My original journal with 5 stops is a paperbag book so I had to buy another journal for the coming year's worth of travels. I settled on a Canson Mix Media 5.5 x 8.5" spiral bound journal.
Our first month's destination is Mexico. To get my muse going, I did a totally digital page which I'll glue into the book.
Wikipedia provided me with a traditional mariachi and ranchera song written by Chucho Monge. The English translation of the lyrics:
Lovely beloved Mexico
If I die far from you
May they say that I'm asleep
and may they bring me back here.
Digital credits from on-line sites:
Stripe background created by Merisa Lerin and found at Pixel Scrapper
Fiesta Fun trim at the top by Lindsay's Stuff found at My Grafico
Mexican doll found at the Graphics Fairy
Using PSE software, I made the trim 3-D, added shadowing behind the doll, and cut and pasted the text.
