Some of you allready know, we will be traveling to the USA 12 th of july and have the biggest vacation ever :-)
I am looking forward to this adventure very much. This is probably the last vacation togehter with the kids and it will be the longest time away from home for us ever. Because I usually take some crafty things with me on vacations I thought to document our trip in a Travel Journal. This will be my fist travel journal so no idea how this will turn out, or if I can keep up with writing in it.
Well I am prepared now, the journal is ready to go (well at least the cover is, the inside is still blank)
I used DecoArt Americana Acrylics to paint the cover of the book (it's a dummy book) the colours I used are Red Alert, Snow White, Lamp Black, True Blue. The red letter are written using a Deco Art Glass Paint marker (yes they are supposed to be used on glass, but I found they can write over acrylic paint too, not a lot markers can do that) I protected the cover with two layers of Dura Clear Matte Varnish.
I made the stripes using masking tape, the stars are a foam stamp, and the statue of liberty is a stencil (had that for ages, it's no longer available, think it's from Avec)
some closer looks, the front:
