No one was stressed...
I'm up on the blog at Love is in the Details today with the beginning of a Travelers Notebook I'm starting to work on. I wrote a lot more about the why's and wherefore's of it over there so be sure to click on over if TNs are of interest to you!
I loved these two photos from our Grandson's visit to AZ last month and decided to do a page about them to start my Traveler's Notebook. (I don't plan to use my TNs as bullet journals, or for lists or writing as many do, but rather as a more portable form of memory keeping. I *may* attempt to make another travelers notebook into an travel/art journal to practice different art techniques, while in different places, but on the other hand that sounds really scary so I probably won't.)
I purchased these three TNs from Ranger/Dylusions and I removed the stitching holding the books together, so that I could mix and match the patterned papers inside. More about that over here. To start with, I'm using the pretty pink and green notebook in the middle.
I typed the journaling on the computer in a Word Document text box and reprinted it onto a label sticker. I also did some repeat stamping with my huge Stampin' Up! alpha roller stamp, and layered up a journaling card with some chipboard and die-cuts.
For the date banner, I painted on a scrap of watercolor paper in the approximate shape and size I needed, let it dry, then cut it out.
I'm really quite excited to adopt this new style of memory keeping - kind of like an ongoing mini album where one page has no resemblance to the next and there need not be any concern over chronology or cohesiveness! Completely without restrictions or rules! I think this could be really fun! Thanks for stopping by today!
