2014 Travel Journal

Next month my husband and I are going to Budapest, Vienna and Prague.  This will be our  time in these cities.  I'm so excited.

I always make a travel journal for any trip I go on.  I decided to use a monochromatic color scheme - based on old book pages.

love it! I used tea to dye a white crocheted pillow cover. I like that effect so much better than plain dye.

I like what you've created - although it reminds me of how much artistic ability and imagination I WISH I had!

Pat, your little journal is wonderful. Thanks so much for sharing the process of making it. I'm wondering if the slideshow is a Blogger thing. It's the next best thing to a video.
