★ Smash-Travel Journal

Oct 13, 2013

Hello fellow crafters, what glorious fall weather we have been having here in south central Ontario.  The sun has been warm and the leaves are beginning to change colour, fall is announcing its arrival and i wanted to share with you  my idea of a Smash Mini Travel Journal i created.

This was created with the brand new papers from Hazel & Ruby, from the Typography Line.  I thought the colours would be perfect for a Deco Art Want2Scrap combination.

I began with a downloaded file from silhouette and rezied the folders to my liking, using papers from the Typography collection i designed this:

Hubby and I have booked a getaway coming soon, and i am looking forward to using this little journal to capture all i can while we are away. We have never gone away together, just the two of us for more then one evening, so this is going to be amazing!

I used Deco Art Chalkboard paint on the Want2Scrap chipboard-Chubba Bubba Chipboard

I used Paper Effects on a ocuple of the tabs in the Smash Album and i used it as Paint.  Putting some on a craft mat and using a small brush to paint it on, i used a think enough coat that it allowed the pink paper from Hazel a& Ruby to still shine on through :D

here are a couple peeks at the inside pages, all ready for tags, tickets, photos and journalling.  I have a few maya road envelopes attach inside the album to add personal notes, momentos and other particulars i do not want to lose.

the black mats on the inside of my album were also painted with the Deco Art Chalk board paint, I am  looking forward to adding some journaling with chalk!
