Handmade Upcycled Travel Journal

Hello friends...I hope you have all been well. I have been under the radar recently, you see when there is sunshine and warmth in the UK everyone is out catching the rays and I am no exception. I have been very creative though, water colouring, art journalling and zendoodling while soaking up the sun.

Above - front and back cover. I did this little project last night. We are off the to south of France for a camping trip  

And I most certainly have to be creative while there and so  thought I would make a travel journal [despite having well over 30 new and partially used...shhhh no judgement] 

I used my daughter's unwanted Hello Kitty notebook [12 pages] I added and layered the pages with various textured paper. I am so excited to use this journal and see it transform into a colourful story, with secret pockets, tags, laces, empherma, quotes and maybe learn a few more french words.

This will be my first time doing an official travel journal, what a pity I only recently discovered this because I have done a fair bit of travelling in my time [ Germany, Spain, Holland, France, Barbados, Vietnam, Thailand, USA, Canada, Scotland,...] how divine would it have been to have a travel journal for each of my trips then????

We live and learn, it is the journey of life.....I wish you all a wonderful weekend. Oh please wish me luck on the driving theory test on Wednesday!
