Good morning everyone, Steph Ackerman here to share a travel journal I created from a repurposed book I found.
This is a perfect sized book to take with you as you do some traveling. Fill it with notes about your trip, add mementos and photos of your journey. It's even a fun gift to give someone to use for their own traveling memories.
Helmar Decoupage and Craft Paste was the perfect adhesive to use for my travel journal.
Using a sponge, I brushed it on the chipboard cover then placed black cardstock on top. To adhere the second layer, I sponged the Decoupage Paste directly on the cardstock. Be sure to use the Helmar Scraper Tool to smooth out the paper on your journal and remove any wrinkles. Any excess Decoupage Paste is easily removed with a baby wipe.
For the third and forth layers, I applied the Decoupage Paste directly to the papers and adhered them to the journal. Again the scraper was perfect for ensuring I had no wrinkles in the papers.
I placed stickers on two strips of color which I then adhered across the center of the book with Decoupage Paste.
I hope I've inspired you to create something fun to document your summer travels.
Thanks for stopping by today.
