Try It On Tuesday - Travel

It’s that time again folks and this fortnight at Try It On Tuesday we have a nice easy theme – travel!

I had a hankering to make another book for my DT piece and here is my (hopefully) weathered looking travel journal. Simple card and tissue paper with paint, inks and a bit of rub-on to highlight the wrinkles.

feb 2014

The spine is hand stitched as is the bit of grungeboard I used to reinforce the spine – I actually thought it cracked quite a lot on the fold (I thought it was supposed to be flexible?) but I guess it only adds to the general look. The inside pages have lots of travel themed stamping but there is plenty of space to write or embellish. There are also a couple of pockets for those interesting bits of memorabilia. Unfortunately I only have the one picture as my ipad is resting and I need to get this posted.

Hope this will encourage you to make your own project on the theme and hop on over to Try It On Tuesday where the rest of the DT have as always done a superb job.

See ya soon!!
