I always make a travel journal to keep track of our adventure and also to have a place to store all the bits and pieces of memorabilia found along the way.
This journal was made very inexpensively with materials purchased at the local Dollar Store as well as incorporating this and that from my stash.
Materials used: card board, scrapbook paper, children's books, manila folders, sketch paper and cording.
In Photoshop Elements, I made a collage of some of the places we plan to visit.
Children's book pages separated coated with gesso, enhanced with water soluble oil sticks.
Manila folders cut to size
Cardboard covers with scrapbook papers
Holes punched with Cinch machine
Clip art lighthouses printed on each Manila folder page; travel dates written on tabs. I plan to write notes, draw sketches, etc. on the painted children's book pages - one for each travel day.
Back cover - I love this paper! I know we will be enjoying plenty of seafood on this trip.
I plan to blog my way through Nova Scotia and hope you will tag along.
