This is what I have been working on today! It's far from being done. I am thinking that the cover still needs something in the upper left corner. I just haven't figured out what to put there yet. I also want to tie LOTS of matching ribbons on the binding. So, you will probably being seeing more of this project as I go along!
I actually bought the paper for this over a year ago. It's the Motifica line from Basic Grey, and I absolutely fell in LOVE with it. Once I saw it, I knew it was the perfect paper for my travel journal, and I have been picturing it in my head ever since. I knew that I wanted it to look "old." I wanted it to feel like it had traveled the world, and had held many stories and treasures within it's pages.
The album is made from 6" X 9" envelopes, that were cut down. Each end has an opening so that I can slide a journaling tag, tourist pamphlets, ticket stubs, or anything else I collect from the trip that I am on.
I used my Bind-it-All to bind the book together. And as you can see, I have dipped into the alcohol inks again for the word "TRAVEL" The pretty flower is from Petaloo. They have the COOLEST flowers!
I am making it so that it can be used over and over again, so there probably will not be pictures on the pages from a specific trip. I am thinking of putting travel quotes on the pages instead. But, since it's still a work in progress, that may all change!
I will be laying in bed tonight, thinking about this album, at 11:30! ROFL!
