We just returned from a fabulous fortnight's holiday in Chamonix, France. We stayed in a lovely chalet style hotel, with an amazing view of Mont Blanc from our room, although it's a little hard to see in this photo sadly. You can clearly see Le Glacier de Bossons though (above the hotel in the middle of the photo). We walked up to see it one day.
We enjoyed lots of hikes up in the mountains. Here's a sneaky photo that hubby took of me on Le Petit Balcon Sud.
And a photo of hubby overlooking La Mer De Glace. The glacier is receding fast recently.
And here's an obligatory selfie somewhere in the mountains.
My June art journal spread was inspired by our adventures in the mountains, and I found some great quotes on Pinterest to add, making my page qualify for Halle's 'Words To Live By' theme at Art Journal Journey.
I used some torn gelli-printed pieces of book page to collage the mountains, trying to show the amazing range of colours that can be seen. The quotes read... 'Life will test you, but remember this, when you walk up a mountain your legs get stronger.' and 'The mountains are calling and I must go.'
Thankfully, I made notes whilst we were away, on our daily activities, so now I can start filling in those mountains :-)
Wishing you all a very happy weekend,
