Colorful Travel Journal

Hello all, welcome to my blog!
Here is my second project for the challenge "Travel" over at Country View Challenges this month.
Last month I showed you my art journal pages, prepared with leftover paints from another project. I promised, to show you the project, where I used the paints. 
As you may know, I am an adventurer at Wanderlust 2016. One of the very first classes was the one from Kate Crane and I utterly enjoyed her work and wanted to try it out, but as you all may know, some things need a little time.

In July a dear friend of mine celebrated her birthday and I knew, that she wanted to go to Danmark for some weeks. So this was a very good reason to make this travel journal as her birthday gift!

I made this little journal after the class of Kate Crane, so I can´t tell you too much about the making of and the techniques, but I´ll show you the close up photos from all the pages - front and back. So grab a cup of coffee, there are a couple of pictures ;-)

The front and the back are made from a canvas covred greyboard, steciled with modeling paste and painted. The butterflies are highlighted with some pink Inka Gold.

The first pages:
much painting, stamping making marks and doodling

The next pages:
The same techniques, but here are some other patterns.

 At the right page there is a little pocket. I inserted some stamped tags, where one can write some important things, glue tickets, ..... whatever

The third pages:

 The back pages:

Here are some blank pages in the middle for some writing. I used my sewing machine. 

That´s my little Travel Journal! I hope you liked it, I had so much fun making it and it definitely won´t be my last one.

Thank you so much for dropping in here today and may be you find time to participate in our Travel Challenge this month!

 I will join in following challenges:

Live Your Dreams

Hallo zusammen, schön, dass ihr bei mir hereinschaut!
Heute ist der erste September und das heißt, Zeit für eine neue Herausforderung bei Country View Challenge! Diesen Monat lautet das Thema: "Reise", ausgewählt von der talentierten Jennie.

Hello all, nice to have you here!
Today it´s the first of September and that means time for a new Challenge over at Country View Challenge! This month the theme is: "Travel", hosted by the talented Jennie.

 Als ich jung war, liebte ich es mit dem Motorrad zu verreisen. Ich fuhr zwar nie selber, ich war nur Beifahrerin, aber ich habe immer das Gefühl von Freiheit und von (ein klein wenig)  Abenteuer genossen ;-). Nun, diese Art von Urlaub möchte ich heute nicht mehr machen - es ist eine sehr spartanische Art des Reisens: zwei T-Shirts, ein Paar Hosen, ein Handtuch, Unterwäsche und eine Zahnbürste, das ist alles, was man einpacken kann. Ein kleines Zelt und eine Isomatte, mehr kannst du auf einem Motorrad nicht mitnehmen. Heute bevorzuge ich ein bisschen mehr Komfort, aber ich erinnere mich an diese Tagen mit einem Lächeln.

 When I was young, I loved to travel by motorbike. I never drove one myself, I only was a back-seat-driver, but nevertheless I always enjoyed the feeling of freedom and (a little bit of) adventure ;-). Well, this way of holidays is not the way I´d love to go today - it is a very unpretentious way of travelling: you only have space for two T-shirts, one pair of pants, a towel, underwear and a toothbrush, that´s it. A little tent and a sleeping pad, more you can´t carry on a motocycle. Nowadays I prefer a bit more comfort, but I remember these days with a smile.

Für meine Karte habe ich einige der Papiere von dem Papierset Correspondence von Tim Holtz verwendet. Ich habe das Hintergrundpapier mit ein paar Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists (Burnt Red, Olive Vine, Tattered Leather) besprüht. Das Motorrad (Stempel von LaBlanche) habe ich auf Stempelpapier gestempelt und mit DI (weathered wood, fired brick) eingefärbt. Die distressten Ränder des Papiers und des Stempelbilds habe ich noch mit DI ground espresso and abandoned coral coloriert. Zum Schluß noch einige Metallzahnräder und kleine Blüten als Verzierung und das wars.

For my card I used some of the papers from the Tim Holtz paper pad Correspondence and misted it a little bit with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists (Burnt Red, Olive Vine, Tattered Leather). I staped the motorcycle (LaBlanche) on a specialty stamping paper, colored it with DI (weathered wood, fired brick). The distressed edges of the paper and the stamped image I coloured with DI ground espresso and abandoned coral. The sentiment is a stamp from the Dovecraft Bohemian clear stamp set. Last I embellished the card with some metal gears and some tiny flowers.
Here are some close ups:
