I made this layout for our Journal It theme over at Unruly Paper Arts. We recently went to Italy and both my sons carried around sketchbooks, taking every chance they could to capture some of the amazing art and architecture. I was one happy mom working in my art journal while they worked in theirs!
I journaled on strips of patterned paper I ran through my printer. Papers, brads, and suitcase are from Bo Bunny, and the letters are Tim's Sizzix Wordplay die. I cut an extra set in grunge and mounted them to add some depth. The old fashioned pen is by A Stamp in the Hand. Everything is edged with distress inks.
Thanks so much for the visit. Please pop on over to UPA to see the other samples for this month's theme... it promises to be a very creative month!
