ADVENTURE journal (CTD #109)

12 Sep

Another Perfect Travel Journal: if you are not familiar with my travel journals and what makes them “perfect,” check out this post here. I used the inspiration at Color Throwdown this week, #109 to design the cover:

I imagined this in my mind and it even came out almost like I imagined. I knew I wanted the letters to “cover the cover,” and to follow a patchwork of the colors from above.

My favorite additions include die cutting a map piece with the same turquoise, hot pink and yellow. Then I added ribbons to the spiral and big buttons to them…fun, fun.

Important Stuff
Papers Green patterned paper (K&Co.),
Die Cuts/Tools Letter die cuts, Wizard™ (Spellbinders Paper Arts); Bind-it-All machine, Owire (Zutter);
Embellishments Ribbons (Creative Impressions); translucent buttons (Oriental Trading Company)
Stamps/Inks Map (Museum of Modern Rubber-retired); World Traveler, Eiffel Tower/Paris Postage (Inkadinkado);  Rubber Stampede Cherry Blossoms (Delta); Post Card (Stampabilities); Memento Tuxedo Black die ink (Tsukineko)

Other Stuff PVA Glue; Turquoise, Pink and Yellow cardstocks, cream paper,

A few other images:

1) inside front cover

2) Stamped image on one of the pages.

3) Close up of cover.

4) Stamped envelope to hold trinkets or papers.
