Travel Journal

When I saw the World Traveler Challenge at Simon Says Stamp, I thought of a friend who's going on an exciting trip soon so I decided to make her a travel journal.  

For the background I used paper from Maps, Text and Ledgers from DCWV.

Here is a close up of the top layer where I did lots of ink blending with distress inks.  When in doubt, add another layer ;)  I decided to experiment and mixed Gel Medium with acrylic paint for the stenciling because I wanted the letters to appear more transparent and slightly blurry.  The stamps are To Travel is to Live (Impression Obsession) and Air Travel (Tim Holtz). 

That's it for today.  Have a fabulous week!
