A Simple Folded Keepsake

We all love traveling, and I for one would never be home if traveling was free - as the saying goes! But for now I am concentrating on traveling locally and with all the ticket stubs and travel related documents that we collect I created this quick and easy folded travel journal. I think it will become better with age - when it is worn and weathered and not so perfect.


Directions:

1. Use and old piece of packaging and fold it into a 6x6" journal cover.
2. Fold several scrap pieces of card stock and paper and sew them together inside the journal cover.

3. On a 53/4 x 53/4" cream card stock add stenciling using Gold Creative medium. Carefully remove the stencil and let dry.

4. Adhere the stencilled piece to the front of the folded cover. Add travel related stamping using Versafine Onyx Black.
5. Color white cardstock using Memento inks in red, blue and orange.
