Welcome to the Designers Craft Connection Blog Hop for the month of July. This month's theme is Travel or Vacation. I chose to highlight the fact that every day is part of a journey that we travel.
So I'm a little late posting because my Travel project was set up at the office. It is a vignette to welcome someone who always encourages crafters to "Enjoy the Journey".
I used an old suitcase and filled it with vintage items one might use on their travels. There is an old camera, binoculars, alarm clock, maps and postcards.
Along the back of the suitcase I created a bunting design using the Paper Rosette die and old, tea dyed seam binding.
In front of the suitcase, I used a page from an old atlas and printed directly onto the page. I adhered it to a piece of Grunge Paper and then die cut the word "Journey". To hold this, I used an old floral frog.
Because this was a "Welcome" display, I added vintage alphabet blocks and used silver sugar bowl lids (see example here) to hold letters of our guest's name. I used alcohol inks and Tissue Tape to embellish the clear acetate letters.
Besides having so much fun designing this display, I had an absolutely fabulous day learning new techniques from our guest, Tim Holtz.
Thank you for sharing the journey Tim!
