The 1st of July is getting closer... Can you feel the holiday calling?! Oh, I'm so looking forward to some sunny days! Chillin in the garden, reading a book... Just thinking about it, brings me in holiday modus! And that's also what inspired my project. I have some nice photo's of me looking at the sunset, for me that’s the perfect way to end my day! I wanted to document that moment in my handmade travelers notebook. Here's what I did...
As usual, I started making my background with some distress ink. First I just added layers of ink to my watercolor paper. After everything dried, I stamped to give the background more dept.
Then it was time to collect my papers. I cut some papers apart in different sized bits and pieces to make a collage around my focal image. I also die-cut some papers to add to my collage.
To balance out my page, I added little clusters of paper on the other page in my journal as well. And I did a finishing touch with some more stamping. This time I stamped some text on my background in a contrasting color. And of course a journal page is never totally finished without a text stamp.
And voila, this is the finished result, a page to dream away…Hope ya'll like it!!
Untill next time!
