***WARNING*** LOTS of photos!!!
Hi there! As promised, I have a "few" photos to share from our recent trip to Australia and New Zealand as well as a few pages from my travel / art journal that I made while on the cruise. Since our trip began in Sydney, Australia, I thought I would share a few more that I hadn't shared in my prior post.
We had to visit Sydney's Apple Store ;)
This is a photo of Hyde Park that was taken while on our tour to the top of the Westfield Tower. The night before, we caught a glimpse of the colorful 35th Annual Mardi Gras parade as the parade performers gathered around Hyde Park.

We took a 90 minute bus tour ride to go visit the Blue Mountains located outside of Sydney where we then took a cable car ride down into the canyon where there to see the beautiful rainforest. Reminded me a little of the Grand Canyon here in AZ.
Our next stop was Melbourne.
This is a photo of a shopping arcade from a street view:
and this is what it looks like once inside: full of little cafes / restaurants and boutiques:
another arcadeThere are many little alley ways within the "art district" that have the most beautifully graffiti painted walls. Such an inspiration for journaled art pages:
couldn't help capturing the famous "Travelocity" gnome ;)
Melbourne's Train Station
I started in a "collage" kind of mood, mixing torn pieces of patterned paper while incorporating our luggage tags along with stamps and paint:
I saved a map from our daily adventure and incorporated pieces into the collage background:
I switched gears and made a few Julie Nutting inspired girls:
Switched gears again and incorporated lots more painting and stenciling along with pieces of collaged maps and memorabilia:
Thanks so much for visiting! I hope you enjoyed the photos that I shared today credit of my dear husband :) I have lots more to share from a few more cities ;) Hope you have a great weekend!
Be Sweet ;)
