An Alaskan Travel Atlas-Map Journal Sketchbook & More…

An Alaskan Travel Map Journal Sketchbook & More… Is what we will create together on this exciting adventure to one of the most majestic and incredible places ever!

We modified an Alaskan Atlas Tour Map accordion style so you can work on both sides, bound it with heavy poster board and even added a hand-bound coiled sketchbook with heavy watercolor paper to the back cover for additional field notes, sketches, collages or whatever inspires you. Whether you convert your atlas-map/journal/sketchbook into a journal doll or not is up to you and a simple process in your studio at your leisure, but each of you will receive an original vintage map in a handmade bound book to begin our adventure. We’ll introduce you to Pogo printers which are very small and a great journaling tool and best described as what would happen if you crossed a Polaroid snapshot with an inkless printer. We never leave home without one – or two! We’ll spend our workshop time collaging, painting, pogo printing on zinc paper and embellishing our book inside and out with pop-ups, windows, transfers, and incorporating the various treasures we collect along the way. Save everything… beginning with your airline tickets and boarding passes and let’s create a memory together.

The project is similar to one of the cover pieces from our new book Who's Your Dada: Redefining the Doll through Mixed Media and documents our travels while teaching in the South of France. Your Alaskan Travel Map Journal Sketchbook will be very similar, although it will be a book - not a doll, for more info and to see some examples – visit http://www.artandsoulretreat.com/cruises.php

A $20.00 material fee includes your handmade and bound atlas-map/journal/sketchbook, 5 zinc sheets and the process of converting it into a doll at some point in the future should you desire
