Hey guys, just want to show you my latest project (well projects really) for taking away on my hols. I made this all-encompassing journal & travel kit out of unused and scrap items:
The main ingredient is this old filofax thing from my uni days:Then I added elements I had made from scrap plastic (turned them into sealable wallets & folders), tissue box cardboard (the closures for the wallets), found an old pencil case and dog clip to attach it to the outside etc. In the pockets & folders I added stickers, stamps, collage papers, washi tape etc.
My favourite bit of the journal is possibly that rubber on a chain! It was too fat to fit into the filofax with it closed so I drilled a hole and added it to a ballchain I got off of some clothing so it can sit outside the kit, but still be attached. The other useful element on there is the Tim Holtz fragment, which I can use with my stamps inside of lugging around a big acrylic block (cool eh?)
Finally the piece de resistance is how I'm going to carry my colouring media around - it's in these homemade watercolour & watersoluable palettes you see on the right:
But I'm not showing you any more on those as that is my next tutorial & I don't want to spoil it lol but in the meantime here's a video of me showing the kit properly if you want to see (along with the travel journal I made to go with it which I haven't shown in this post & lots of ideas for making your own):
Thanks for stopping by (& the tutorial will be up asap), much love you guys *hugs*
