Man oh man. Berlin. It has my heart. I took my Berlin City Notebook and UniPine Fine Line (0.05) with, and spent coffee shop time doodling and journaling away. At night I’d add ephemera found from the day. I traveled there with Fe, a fellow documenter, who totally understood and wrote in her Project Life cards as I made marks in my journal. Not that T doesn’t understand. He’s actually pretty brilliant and doesn’t mind as long as I keep occassional conversation (which I totally can, yay me).
This was a life view changing trip for me, and this tiny little notebook is really special. You can see bits of the Gossamer Blue March kit in it too.
I am the worst sketcher, but I still like my eggs benedict image.
Berlin and it’s street art. Even it’s advertising spam is gorgeous to me. I took that Ram Tam Tam right off the street pole.
I mean. That paper. All found pieces.
And all of this paper found in one shop.
The back of the Moleskine City Notebooks are loads of fun. They are a DIY travel guide and I love filling those out as we go.
So that’s what it looks like before touching it at home. I always have grand plans of completing it when I have all my supplies and my studio, but I quite like it as is. All of this was done while in Berlin itself. It’s nothing crazy, there are no watercolour cityscapes, but it’s mine. And it feels exactly like how I felt when I was there. Now that’s a little bit of magic.
