Travel page using ephemera

Hi there,

I’m bringing you a project I did recently of a travel page of a holiday I went on as a student to Dublin. I had a go at stenciling with gold acrylic paint and covered some in glossy accents to create a different texture. I have to admit that I’m not that good at it! I kept catching the edge of the stencil and making a mess but it was fun. I put a few blobs of nuvo crystal drops in a light yellow colour and waited for it to dry.

Where i’ve put the photo is actually the brochure/map from the Guinness factory, which is just a have to do while you are there, even though me and my friend both hate Guinness. What is amazing is the view from the tower at the top and the Guinness caramel chocolate bars which I brought for gifts and were eaten before we got back on the plane.

I added a few more photos and places for journalling inside but it folds out again to have information and a map of Dublin.

I layered a load of random embellishments from different collections but the main ones were from a sticker sheet from the Echo Park Getaway collection and I attempted to have a go at making a paper rose which turned out really cute!

Many Thanks for reading 🙂
