Here are some photos of some of the artwork I created while I was on vacation. I created this travel journal and field kit for Seth Apter, whose blog is called "The Altered Page", http://www.thealteredpage.blogspot.com/. Seth has been 1 of my biggest supporters for awhile now and during the time I was working on my own India journal, I received many compliments on my pages. So of course, it was only fitting that I make Seth an India journal of his own.

One of the things I have learned from reading Seth's blog for the last year is that he is a BIG fan of the color blue. So, in putting together his journal, I tried to incorporate the blue he likes plus the vibrant colors of my own journal that Seth really liked.

Here is a shot of the interiors of the field kit. The hand on the left was made with a rubber stamp. I then painted and added my own touches to make it "gel" with the India theme and the recurring of the hands throughout the journal and field kit covers.
