Day 18, Barcelona

Another sleep-in day. And I was alarmed to see what the aliens had done to my hair when I looked in the mirror for the first time after waking. :)

Today–well, who knows? I think we’ll try to find Mail Boxes Etc. first thing, so we can mail home our loot.

I’ve kept up my ATCs and have some new ones in the works. Wandering yesterday, I found some pretty wrapping paper that can be cut to ATC and collage size, once I get home, and also a fairly good-sized poster, which I intend to adapt in a way I’ve seen artists at La Rambla do. I’m not trying to be mysterious, here, but it’s going to be a while before I can work on it. When I do, I’ll post a picture. The technique basically involves embellishing a well-known piece with dimensional paint, glitter, etc. The effect is indeed striking.

I’m very pleased with my journal–it’s mostly postcards and ATCs, with comments added, and it brings back so many memories, even now, before we’ve even left Spain. I know I’ll always treasure it.

Look for photos and an update later.
