journal background

I'm finally packing for my trip to Maui.  My anxiety level rises as I cannot make up my mind what art supplies to bring.  Just imagine- one whole week without worrying about household chores, chauffeuring children, and office work!  That's a total of 7 days that I can spend time doing art leisurely.  Just the thought of it makes me want to jump up and scream "yayyyyyyy"!
Anyway, I prepared some background spreads in my journal that I'll like to share.  They were made using techniques I learned from other artists.
