babies grow too fast....
...I think that's something we can agree on, yes? Hi friends, I'm back today with a traveler's notebook layout to share! Back when I began to use these Dylusions Traveler's Notebooks, I removed the thread from the spines and put the various pages back together so that each book was a mix of lined paper, dotted paper and graph paper. I used heavy duty thread and a long darning needle to resew each of the books, going in and out of the same machine pierced holes from the original notebook. You can read more about that process here.
I also planned that one of these re-tooled notebooks would be dedicated to layouts about my grandchildren, another for miscellaneous photos, feelings and events, and the third for, I haven't yet decided. ;-D
Today's layout is in the "miscellaneous" notebook and is inspired by the hummingbirds that returned again this year to build a nest in the tree right outside our back door.
To create the title, I stamped with the Tim Holtz/Ideology foam alphabet stamps and Altenew ink in Moss. I wanted an uneven roughness to the letters, so I blotchily stamped off once onto scratch paper and then fully onto the notebook paper. Then I added a "grow" sticker from Simple Stories Bloom & Grow line, and the mini-alpha stickers from the Pink Fresh, Boy's Fort line. The phrase sticker and the round wooden phrase embellishment are from that product line as well.
I'm not sure what it is about these smaller formats that invite me to journal more, but I laid down a bunch of thoughts about this nest and it's occupants! Then I added a couple of strips of Washi tape (Michaels and American Crafts), a Silhouette cut cardstock leaf, some enamel dots and an enamel heart (from Illustrated Faith) to complete the page.
