Welcome to another Crew Member Wednesday! Today we have Linda who is sharing a wonderful handmade travel journal! Don't you just love the colors she used?!!
Hello there !
Imagine a world where only love and no hate excist?
Today I have a handmade travelalbum to share with you. I’ve used a mix of designpapers and mixedmediapaper which I decorated with gelliprint and stamping. The cover is cut to 25x20cm where 2cm on the right is scored to overlap the font of the album. The pages inside is cut to 22x20cm and folded in two. To lock the book I used two circles of paper with splitbinders connected to the cover. Use any kind of string around the circles to close it.
Front of the minialbum
The front is decorated with various layers of cut-outs where I’ve added stamping and gelliprints. The orange flower I stamped on the tag with orange ink and embossed with clear embossing. The cover itself has layers with gelliprints and a layer of vailing on top. In the picture below you can clearly see the vailing on the back of the cover.
This is the inside of the cover. Here I’ve collaged a vintage map on the gellibackground, and the diecut heart covers the splitbinder from the lock.
On these two pages you can clearly see the mix of design papers and gelliprint paper. I’ve also used stamps to create extra decoration. The panels are measured to fit the pictures I will use on these pages.
Gelliprint page with stamping on, ready for pictures, journaling and memory items from the trip.
I’ve used stamps on a ghostprint page to create an interesting journal page.
Sadly, the cool effect of white embossing on white paper doesn’t show too well on the picture, but it sure makes a great effect on the real page.
