Layout Getting There and Back

I know it has been far too long since my last post and I don't really have an excuse. Time goes quickly and life happens and all of a sudden nearly a month has passed.

I have managed to get pages 2 & 3 of my holiday album done. It is the page that includes all of the travel documents.

Because there was so much paperwork I used 2 of the white A4 ready made envelopes, with the sealable flap cut off.

I used a clock stencil, to signify all the time spent on planes and in airports, with some texture paste I had coloured with acrylic paint on the background. I then sprayed with some Black Magic Glimmermist.

I created the flap of the envelopes with the same patterned paper that I used to mat the Boarding passes.
The flaps close with velcro to keep them closed and the embellishment on the tab is a pair of earrings I bought at the op shop with the backs removed. The centre of the earring is a velvety type of fabric.

I stitched the envelopes to the background card with my sewing machine to make sure they stayed in place.

I cut the title out on my Cricut using the Cuttin Up cartridge. The wooden planes were painted with acrylic paint and then heat embossed with a couple of coats of UTEE.

I have also made a card for a friend who is having his 70th birthday party while we are away, but have not taken a photo of it yet. Hopefully I will get that done tomorrow and I will post a picture here for you then.

Thanks for dropping by
Till next time
