WHAT TO TAKE WITH YOU:
I pack a kit of washi tape, pritt stick and coloured pens so that I can update on the go or in the hotel or by the pool. What better way to spend a day than sitting in the sun with your journal?
Black paper is something I wanted to try for this journal. I have seen some lovely journals using white and gold pens and they really stand out on a black background. I also added a bit of watercolour on the pages edge and topped it off with some journaling cards from Mrs Brimbles. These were in the May or June box I think.
For further inspiration see my two completed travel journals in the videos at the bottom of this post.
The journal above was a handmade journal that I put together using a variety of different papers, all different sizes. I like to use a mixture of papers to give different backgrounds to give the journal individuality. This page has an insert from a mindful colouring book as well as project life style journaling cards and ephemera. I cut the paper to size, then put it through the sewing machine to bind it, but you can easily use a long armed stapler instead or hand sew it.
I would love to see your travel journals and set up's, feel free to post a link below to share your pages. Be sure to follow on Instagram and You Tube from the links below to see more of my journaling.
