With numerous days ahead in Doha, i decided to pack me a little travel kit. Ok maybe not so little but compared to the studio, trust me this is a small portion. Andy will be working and gone some nights while we are there. Anthony & I have 24 hours of traveling ahead, plus the return trip. So i will need something to keep me busy and I have an insatiable need to create. I actually tried to limit myself this time, meaning i didn't take every medium i own. Trust me when i say this is so hard! Not all of this will be in my carry-on. I will limit myself to the art journals & pens for now. Maybe some washi tape. So let's take a closer look at what's in my travel kit.
I have two art journals going with me, both Moleskin. These are watercolor journals perfect for almost any medium. My adhesive dispenser is a must. Yes i decorated it. I had leftover paint one day and it was sitting there.
If i had to limit my mediums, spray ink/mists is always going to make the cut. I decided to bring a small rainbow of colors. The mini misters are perfect for traveling! They will be double bagged in case of leaks. Right next to them are my black pens in a variety of sizes.
Love Picket Fence distress stain. It is a great white that really covers well without lifting off the page days later. Black ink is a must and there is a white ink (Snowcap) underneath as well. Water bottle, glue stick, some dabber paints are to the left. a simple corner punch can add so much to a page. Needle & black floss. A tin of embellishments. Paint brushes in round, flat, and filbert. Water pens, a pencil, and a good white eraser. What you don't see is some stamps that are already packed.
There is a kraft journal under the scissors and brayer. Again moleskin. It will be my travel journal for Doha. Just a little grid journal to help me document my time in Doha. Behind that are some travel word fetti stickers from Making Memories. Remember those? Yes i still have a few of those from ions ago (11 - 12 years ago?). Perfect for this trip, along with some 7 gyspies date stickers. There are some kraft journal jotters & Kraft Polka dot envelopes from Maya Road and some glassine envelopes from Tim Holtz. Manilla tags, 3 x 4 pieces of paper, and book paper under the brayer & scissors. A few washi tapes and walnut stain ink. It's my favorite. And underneath it all is a craft mat that will be joining me on this journey. It's a great instant go to surface.
