Inside a book

I was asked the other day what my finished journal pages look like after a trip, and I though I post a few here. The journal and pages are from my last trip to LA in November. If you look closely at the pages you can see that they are made from scrap paper and sewn together. I also add pockets on to some of the pages as well. I embellish the pages with washi tape (I LOVE washi tape), stickers, colorful clips, safety pins, and sometimes ribbons as well. While traveling I try to journal each day adding photo's, postcards and just "stuff" that I pick up as well as my reflections of the day. On the journal pages that I posted I also added date circles to the edge of the pages. I have a small box that travels with me with that I keep my pens, pencils, glue, tape, scissors and other bits and bobs that I will use to embellish with. Today I spent time in getting everything together for my trip, only 3 more sleeps!
