Try it On Tuesday - Travel Theme

Although I have lots of 'Paris' themed travel stamps, I didn't want to use them for this project as I am actually off to Paris in the next few weeks (just for a day trip) and I thought I would try to make a little scrapbook when I got back. (I know, pigs might fly). Sooo, as I would love to see Venice I thought I would make a little Venice themed tag as my DT submission.

Of course the prolem then was I didn't have enough Italian bits and bobs so had to improvise.
I googled a map image and overlaid it with a mysterious 'door' collage image I have to make a digital background, printed off stamped, coloured and distressed. I used a 'door knob' photo from some Crafty Individual papers and stamped the gondola and coloured. To bring the two textures closer together I print-magicked them both, added some lace and made the little mask from a clay face I had in my stash.

Maybe I'll save it to use on the scrapook page when I do actually get there!!

SoI do hope you will join in with us at Try It On Tuesday this fortnight. Your project can be anything you like as long as  you keep to the travel theme.

And don't forget the rules, the most important of which is you must only link to five challenges. Remember our top 5 picks get an entry in the monthly prize draw and the chance to be a guest designer.

Other than that, have fun and the DT will be round to see what fantastic creations you've come up with this time.

Ciao, Cindy

Great tag Cindy. Love all the variations and improvisations. It's amazing what we crafters can put together when we're challenged. Hope you will get to Venice someday. Enjoy Paris. Angy xx

Lovely to hear about all your improvising inventiveness... amazing what you've done combining digital and actual stamping and inking! I'll keep my fingers crossed for the Paris mini-album, and for the trip to Venice!!
