Yesterday, I got out my Spain travel journal (I blogged the pre-trip journal here), and began working on it. So fun.
Out came the ephemera and other items collected along the way, like some leaves and flowers, a placemat, maps, tickets etc. and started printing some photos that I was sure I'd want to use. I'm using my new printer and I'm super pleased with it. Easy to set up, easy to use and great print quality. For my travel journal, I'm printing on this paper (easier to write on), and for project life, I'm printing on this paper, in case you were wondering.
I really didn't get to journal much on the trip, I mostly glued in paper finds or taped on postcards like on the page above and below.
Very little trip documenting went down while there, it's just hard for me when with my family to get my own time- even the down time is spent together. And that's fine. There's no reason I need to do it while there. Hello stamp is from here.
I must say, I AM very much looking forward to our class in Italy, where we WILL be constructing our trip journal together while there, enjoying indulging in the travel journal creation experience as it's happening. it's going to be a whole new experience for me and I know I'll love it.
I ended up tearing out a spread that I HAD worked on there, because it was out of date order, and bothering me. I'll add it using tape somewhere later in the book.
But now that I'm home, I got out some more goodies, like these arrow stickers, and these letter stickers, and these travel stickers, and these label stickers. I also got out this ink and this dip pen, this marker all shown below, and let the play begin!
I haven't gotten too far, but here's some shots of it currently:
So much more to go, and I still haven't even shown you any actual photos from the trip. So many pretty pretty sights there.
Another Spain travel journal installment soon...
