Summer is the time that a lot of families take long vacations. The weather is nice, kids are out of school and it's always great to get away. You're going to take a lot of photos while you're away and there is a good chance that many of you will create scrapbooks. This could be used in a pocket perhaps with your own photos on the flip side. Some of you may even be bringing back souvenirs for friends and family and need a gift tag. Either way, my project today is for you.
Altered Pages has many destination themed collages so no matter where you're headed, chances are you can find some great images to compliment your photos or gifts. I chose several images from mostly non-U.S. cities for my tag. I've never been anywhere so I may as well dream big.
I chose to use Memento Luxe in 4 colors and Donna Salazar Mixed Media in in Truffle brown. The Memento colors were sponged on at random and the Mixed Media ink was sponged around the edges and also used for the clock faces.
The images on the 6x6 Time Travel stencil are close together so I surrounded the one I wanted to use with painters tape. This allowed me to get ink into the entire image without edges or ghosts of the rest of the stencil images close by.
After the ink was dry enough to not smear, I started adding the travel images with a glue stick. A little fancy yarn at the top and the tag was complete.
