Napier Weekend

We spent last weekend away in Napier.
View from Te Mata Peak
Pania of the Reef. Marine Parade
Took the boys this time for family fun.
We were blessed with gorgeous weather
and inspiring art deco architecture
Looking out the beautiful windows of Ujazi cafĂ©
- highly recommended for brunch
and I got a chance to work in my art journals
I still haven't managed to make a tiny portable journaling kit!
But it works when you are traveling by car with plenty of room :-) Here's the contents :: Outside pocket -- scissors, old catalogue for gluing on, baby wipes to clean up, and a dry one to smooth down collage images, glue stick + a spare. Looking down inside the bag at the front you can see my 2 current journals, and to the side 2 pencil cases.
One pencil case held tapes, and the other fav pens and my Koh-I-Noor watercolours and a water brush. I would love to fit in more tape and pens, and some stencils - but first I need to work on cutting down the volume of background papers and images!
Would be great if I could fit all of the paper into 1 or 2 of the zip pouches. I did just grab the papers on our way out the door....Will let you know if I manage a more planned approach next trip.
The white book is the journal I'm doing my calendar pages in
and the other is my Full Tilt Boogie journal which now includes these completed pages. 
page in progress
At least I used some of those papers!

Lovely, lovely, lovely! Napier is a wonderful place. I travelled much lighter when I went to a conference in Auckland recently . . . I knew I would have very limited time available but was determined to keep up with my month of doing a mini-doodle a day.
