Russia, Here I Come!!
This is the cover to my 'Russia Journal'. It is a Journal from SEI with 8 1/2 x 11 pages. I left all of the inside pages blank. I plan on bringing some colored pens and a glue stick. A sorta journal/scrapbook on the go.
First I covered the album in Tempting Turquoise cardstock. I then stamped it with the Hero Arts Clear DesignTravel Journal. Then, I added a piece of K&Co patterned paper. Next I tied a piece of American Crafts Ribbon.
Then, I made 4 seperate design elements.
The first element is in the top right. I stamped three sentiments from Hero Arts (the same three that I used for the background) in Taken with Teal. I added 3 rhinestones from EK Success. I sponged the outline with Cameo Coral Ink.
The next element I worked on was my main title 'Russia'. I stamped 'Russia' in Rose Red with the Headline Alphabet from Stampin' Up. I also stamped 'Let's Go with Versafine Black. I stamped a background image from Ms in Tea Dye from Ranger.
The third element is the green notebook paper. The notebook paper stamp is from Cornish Heritage Farms. I stamped it in Old Olive. Next I stamped the 'remember this' element by Hero Arts in Versafine Black. I doodled the date and subtitle with BG39 and RV29 Copics. Love my copicss!! I then placed another 3 rhinestones on the right hand corner.
The last element is the tag from the Hero Arts Set. I sponged it in Cameo Coral, Old Olive and Tempting Turquoise. I then stamped 'enjoy the journey' in Cameo Coral and 'World Traveler' in Old Olive.
WOW, that was a long explanation!!!
I hope to update at some point on the trip, but if not, we'll talk a week from Monday when I will start Little Paper ShopMay teasers!!!
