Travel Journal Folio

This is one of those projects that you wont get finished in class, it's designed for you to take home and complete with your own photos, knick-knacks and souvenirs.
So we started out with the small Tim Holtz folio - the wee foldy up bitty that you get for the inside to make the spine of all the pages and inserts is so simple and so clever.
So we used my very favourite card - Oyster Contour from Papeterie Crafts - this is great card, it's paler than the Ranger Manilla and has a hammered texture, and best of all it stands up to lots of distressing techniques, and because of the hammered finish you get some gorgeous finishes.
So we clear embossed some of the stamps before we distressed all the panels I had pre-cut with a mixture of Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Gathered Twigs, and Evergreen Bough distress inks, splattered some water at them, and used the same inks to do some stamping.

 Then we got to the fun bit, adding all sorts of tags, diecuts, pockets, fold-outs etc to the spine. So there was lots more distressing going on, and adding some rub-ons and chit-chat well as making a clever wee travel journal with lots of pages, from the Tim Holtz Vintage Valise die
