A simple post for Glue it Tuesday at artsyville. This is an altered book page about how Paul and I decided early in the kids' lives that we would travel with them internationally (A LOT). I listed some of our major international trips on map paper and glued it on the right. I used grey acrylic paint along the bottom half of the page to make a smooth transition from the art to the page. Used some art doll stamps (painted with water colors) to represent the family. Added some quotes from the Passport to Art class: "I challenge you to make your life a masterpiece." from Tom Robbins and "We wander for distraction, but we travel for fulfillment." from Hilaire Bellec.
The page was inspired by the prompt for Day 8 in the Passport to Art class about taking a leap of faith, which these trips truly were. Although the kids (at 15 and 18) don't remember a lot of the details of many of these trips, they do remember that we traveled together as a family and are both totally fearless travelers. They will always remember the importance we placed on family trips and will not be intimidated by new experiences. Paul and I remember it all and wouldn't trade the experiences for anything.
