Travel Journal #GSLCCCBmatchup



Do you Travel? Do you like to document your travels?
Today we have Crew Member Donna Bowman showcasing her Travel Journal she created
just for that purpose, as part of our #GSLCCCBmatchup

In her words….

I love to travel and always try to keep a travel journal on my long trips. I used some of the awesome new Architextures stickers and packaging and some fabulous Gypsy Laser Soul Cuts chipboard accents to create the cover for my latest travel journal. I love to make layered collages and these supplies lend themselves perfectly to lots of textured layers.

How to make a Travel Journal

Step 1
Roughly brush Buff paint on the cover of the journal.

Step 2
Next, gather different elements for your collage and place them on the journal until you find a design you like. Cut elements to size and paint chipboard pieces to match the collage.

Step 3
Adhere elements to the journal cover with double sided tape. You might want to take a photo of you layout so you can remember where all the pieces should be as you adhere them to the cover.

    I’m usually so anxious to get to what is inside the
    packaging that I tear it up. then it goes in
    the recycle or trash. I need to change my
    thanks for sharing a fantastic cover.
