“We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.”
Several months ago, I was regaling a friend with stories about the wonders, beauty and charm of Vancouver Island. We had taken 10 days to explore different parts of the Island and that trip left such a lasting impression on our family that, years later, I was still telling stories about it. I found myself ending the stories with this..."It's an AMAZING place!"
Fast forward to a couple of months ago, when I was planning the theme for an album which would be the project for the Spring (March 21st) creatologie workshop. While the workshop is sold out, I will be making some extra kits...yay! In anticipation of the travel season, I decided to put together a travel album...of sorts...and to call it "An Amazing Place".
So here's the thing...and why I said "of sorts". Many of us think that a special place entails planning for a year, flying somewhere, a jam-packed itinerary, etc. But really, you don't have to fly to another continent, travel across country, or drive hours from home to find that amazing place.
Your amazing place could be a local park, arboretum or public garden, museum or...I know you all will relate to this...your favorite flea market! Grin.
The album I've designed is flexible enough to work with whatever your "Amazing Place" happens to be! Or, if you'd like to give it a different title, you can, since the title block is actually a metal rimmed chalkboard :).
The album structure is a fabric folio which I've designed...linen in color and texture...and it'll even be sewn for you...yay! Inside, you'll find pages of watercolor paper, cardstock, and onion skin. There's a fun paper folding technique you'll learn to create a fun little folio, and there are also fold outs on a couple of the pages. All in all, you'll have 30 pages on which to design, some of which will be part of the kit and others left open for your creative pleasure, your pictures and your stories.
Here's a little peek at one of the inside pages...
It's really a fun project...from the textured metal cover (cool technique you'll learn) to the many pockets, pouches and foldouts, the honeycomb enclosure, the custom designed ephemera collage paper, and the handmade flowers, I know that you'll enjoy putting this one together. And, oh, just so I don't forget, there's a new binding stitch on this album. It's not hard, a variation on one I've repeatedly taught and a good one to use again...just one that I've not taught before...which is always fun.
This has turned out to be one of my most favorite travel journals...a great mix of media and textures!
Any stamped images which are in my sample will be done for you and included in the kit.
A set of workshop instructions will also be included with your kit.
The extra kits I'll be making are available for pre-order now. They will be shipping out March 30th, after the workshop, to allow enough time for me to take care of stamping, etc.
