This Summer/Fall is full of crafty adventures for me. I’m SO excited and determined to document all of my adventures along the way. I decided to create a small travelers note book/art journal.
I started by using the Supreme Ruler to cut down the gigantic watercolor paper that I picked up at my local craft store. I wanted a heavy good quality watercolor paper because I planned on using ink, paint, and watercolors within the journal. I cut the paper down to 8 1/2 x 8 1/2. I cut one piece of patterned paper to 8 1/2 x 8 1/2 for the cover of the journal. Then I used the Supreme Ruler again to draw a straight line down the center of the journal so I could stitch down the center of the paper.
The Stitch Happy sewing machine stitched through the heavy watercolor paper like a champ! After stitching through the stack of paper I folded the journal in half to create a book. Inside the journal, I went a little crazy with paints, watercolor, and Heidi Swapp color shine.
For each section of the journal, I created a tab using the Tab Punch Board. Each tab is embellished with a cute little puffy heart sticker.
On the first page of the journal, I created a frame with the Frame Punch Board. Inside that frame, I typed all of the cities I will visit on my crafty adventures.
On the first full spread in the journal I added a few photos from my adventure on top of the Heidi Swapp color shine background.
I can’t wait until my little crafty adventure journal is clear full! It was so fun and so easy to create using many of my favorite We R Memory Keepers tools. Thank you for stopping by the We R Memory Keepers blog. I’ll see you again soon!
