For 2014, I decided instead of making a small souvenir travel journal for each trip I go on, I wanted to make one journal I can use all year long, for all the trips I take.
I have still been itching to work in an old book journal, so I used another old book to create this journal, using new and old papers for the pages. For the spine, I used an antique sheet music cover that said "Souvenir" which I adhered with lots of layers of gel medium.
For the inside cover I used a page from an old 1800's geography book, and I made the first page a title page for the journal:
The next spread will be a sort-of table of contents, where I will write each trip and the dates:
For the back I used another page from the old geography book, and added a pocket to stick bits of ephemera as I find it:
Next week I will share with you the pages I completed for my first trip of 2014!
