Kristine's Africa Book

This trip book has been a labour of love. Grumpy & I met on this trip back in 1985. Our 20 Year Re-union was at the Gold Coast, AU Sept 30th, 2005. We couldn't go empty handed so we scourged the old albums, tuned up the scanner & raided my bountiful art stash.

  Front Cover

I just love this cover. The pic is nearly at the end of our 24 week Great African Safari (GAS), sand matting across the Sahara Desert – 54°C in the shade – a total adventure that truly changed my life – I met Grumpy – introduced forever more as “My African Souvenir”. There are many layers on this cover just like this great African overland itself.
  P2

There is a folded sheet showing the Bedford Trucks layout & hidden compartments. The commencement date of the GAS, The key symbolizes that I am wanting to share / open our memories with the reader. The giraffe in an ongoing joke that fits this theme & the Dr Livingstone cartoon says it all really “Are you outgoing, adventurous & like meeting people?”
  P3

Day 1 of the GAS – The truck, which we latter named Nullis Secundis (2nd to none), a list of the punter's names, a few quips & Art Mould© 166XLge Oval Mask.

 P4

Found a great ephemera sheet and added a coffee stained map, plus the Encounter Overland Logo & some appropriate stickers.


 P5

Titled “Truck Life”. The truck was a s adventurous as the punters. Apparently being lifted onto a barge on the Congo River was a no no but what a highlight those 5 days were (see P13).
  P6

This simple page shows a variety of African Textiles. A glassine Envelope holds a Political Map of Africa.

  P7

Titled “Chores” Although I added the quips “Special & Fun” I don't think at the time anyone would have said that. I have added Art Mould© AM098 XXLge Rectangle Frame
  P8

My Birthday. My favourite photo that I snapped was of the 3 Malawi boys and I was definitely not going to push the truck out of mud on that day of all days. I traded some film for a brass bangle that I have worn every day since with the Masai Warrior when in Milindi.
  P9

Titled “Camp Chores”. Although we did operate a roster we do seem to have a lot of the girls in these pics. Our driver, Dennis, was in his element tinkering with the truck – of course some of the guys were willing helpers too.

P10

Elephant dung paper or so I am told, is the background sheet. The mini black pocket holds the original pages from the Encounter overland brochure - it is good to be a hoarder!!! - and shows the departure date from Jo'burg & arrival date in London. 18 countries whew. I have since added decorated tags to this page.
P11

Market Shopping was usually fun but some markets were a challenge with little fresh food and virtually no meat.
  P13

A variety of Camp Sites are shown here. Niamey's sandy park was an uncomfortable Easter stop but we were saved by the local US Marine Base. The central photo shows the cook tent and others on the steel deck of the Congo River Barge. Used Art Mould© AM211 Lge Stylized Gum Leaf.

P15

More friendly locals at a variety of markets. The centre pic is from a serviette and the black mask on centre base is using “Fantastic”.
  P17

Thrills were grabbed at every opportunity & that's right I do not appear in any of these pics. Grumpy was one of only 5 that successfully climbed Mt Kilimanjaro. I was greatful just to stand on the equator line.
 P18

Can you believe this is the very moment Grumpy & I first hugged - & we got it on film. The other marriage from the trip was of Russell & Cathy B – good catches hey?

The Dinner. Charlie & Di (yes their real names) joined our group in Nairobi. Di told me Charlie was a great cook & he needed to get onto the cooking roster – I volunteered to do 2 stints to accommodate him & here is our Formal Dinner to launch him - Feb 13th - Valentine's Eve. Only days before we had trekked Silver Backed Gorillas in Virunga Nat Pk and had walked on Lake Navasha viewing 1000.s of Flamingos. What a week.
  P21

Here we all are – I think this is the only page where all 21 faces are shown.

P22

My favourite animal pic – a lioness at Masa Mara Nat Pk. I have stamped a few tags here with African images and the backing paper is numerous old pics of Africans.

The actual itinerary we did – not strictly following the letter in the brochure. 
  P24

Grumpy took this background pic of Victoria Falls, ZM, from a light plane just before joining the GAS. All other pics are from our combined albums.
  The Box Lid

The box was crafted by Grumpy based on a Japanese Box where the sides drop down. I covered the top with the map of our journey and the sides were sections of Michelin's maps of Africa with various stamps & casts from a variety of our African Art Moulds© stuck on. I lined the inside of the box with copies of the various currencies I collected during our visits to 18 African nations.

  Memorabiliaiaiaia

This glassine envelope holds the actual currency from many of the African countries we visited - until this album we have always displayed numerous currencies under the glass top of a coffee table Grumpy made for me as a wedding gift.
  Visas & Passports

These glassine envelopes hold photocopies of the numerous visas we had to obtain to traverse the African continent, stamped passport pages, Health Books showing the many inoculations we endured and the original Border Crossing Passenger List showing all fellow passengers Passport details.

This Trip Book was made from stripping down and tearing apart 2 children's Board Books. I painted pages, I stuck serviettes onto pages, I collages pages. I had so much fun. Right throughout this Trip Book I have used numerous products from many companies that produce stickers & ephemera etc including Basic Gray & 7 Gypsies, Design Originals & Collections to name a few.
