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!
