An art journal Round Robin

This is a spread made in somebody elses art journal, a little scary, but I think it worked out alright. this is a Round Robin that I entered into. Every 2 weeks I will receive somebody's journal to work in, whilst my own journal is also traveling. If all goes well, I will get my own journal back in September with a load of lovely spreads in made by other people. Love that idea!!
I went for vintage, started out with T.H. tissue paper glued down with mat gel medium. Then I coloured it using D.I. Rusty Hinge, and Vintage Photo around the edges. Then I took some black thread and stitched around the edges twice. With a T.H. mask and Archival ink I added some compasses. Then I took the leftover of a Tim Holtz cut out Typewriter alphabet and used it as a stencil. I coloured some modeling paste with black gesso and added letters here an there.
The suitcases are an image I downloaded form the Internet and they are placed on a (part of) a sticker with the word travel on. I glued it all down with mat gel medium and added shades all around with a brown Faber Castel Pitt pen.
On the other side of my spread I wanted one of those antique photos, so I started browsing the Internet and came up with this one which seemed rather appropriate with the travel theme. Before adding it to the spread I took some gauze and coloured it with a mix of Rusty Hinge, Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain Distress inks. After drying I first glued down the gauze and then stitched the photo on, again with black thread.
Pf cpirse my spread needed a quote, so hurray for the Internet, I found this one. I took a regular kraft lable I bought at a bookshop, (the're so much cheaper then the ones you buy in the craft stores and work fine), crupled it up, had a go at it with my vintage photo ink pad and wet it through and through with a mister. Then flattened it out again and dried it. I distressed the edges with a Heidi Zwapp distress tool and made sure I would tear it here and there. Then used some Walnut Stain around the edges to make it pop against the background, and used some seambinding I coloured with D.I. to give it a bow. Then glued it down with Tacky glue.
So, that was it, hope you like it girls!! Hugs Frea
