I had such an amazing holiday with some of my family, and now I’m making a journal to record the holiday in.
I collected a lot of ephemera from the trip, and the plan is try to only use items from the holiday in the journal:
I scanned most of the ephemera, so, I can copies if I want and keep the originals.
For the cover I used a scanned image of a t-shirt my mum bought me for my birthday. I love that it has the blue butterflies on it which has become my symbol.
Then for the inside of the cover I did a collage using images from various brochures I collected. It’s sort of like a vision board of the holiday with all the places we went to represented.
I used a large envelope to make the cover, so, this I’m excited to be making my first envelope journal.
This is the first time I’ve made a journal like this, so, just having fun experimenting and we’ll see how it turns out.
