A travel journal or a travelogue was in my wishlist from long time. I love travelling and clicking pics. My recent love for painting, doodling etc was forcing me more to have one. To start with I didnt wanted to invest in a proper Travel Journal (yes they do exist). I had my own requirements like the page should be textured, it should not be pure white and smooth, the cover should be different. Fountain pain should look beautiful and I can paint doodle, stick photo or whatever.
I finalised many and even decided to make own if I dont get what I want. But luckily my search ended with Bohemian Alley. To start with I ordered 2 journals from them. One is the Ribbon Diary which I have converted to Travelogue and another one I am using for different medium illustrations, paintings etc.
Bohmeian Alley Ribbon Diary
This a pure beauty elegance with quality. It has got textured pages though its 100 gsm but suitable for all mediums. I have used water color, gouache, fountain pen, sketch pen, karin markers as of now and it have survived all of them well. Its not pure white just off white which look very classy and vintage. The cover use the scrap fabric from the cloth maufacturing industry in Rajasthan and the papers used are handmade.
I have attached a short video too. Will highly recommend to visit their Instagram page. Currently they are on Instagram only and its small business and demand is very high. So you need to keep checking when the prints and the products are in stick. The Store owner is a very cooperative professional. The whole experience of choosing and selecting is very smooth.
Travelling is hardly a thing from past one year. But we all do have many pics and memories which we want in our journal. With that thought I started this.
- In left side I will write a description of the place, location, any particular incident
- On right side there will be a painting or illustration or doodle whatever
- On left side I will write atleast few lines related to the right side
- Location and date will be mentioned
Its not necessary to paint only you can use photo or stick any memory, you can use any normal diary, notebook and to that matter any journal.
This I found the most beginner friendly way to have own Travelogue, do you have any let me know in comments.
