I haven't used the Rollagraph stamp wheels for ages so it was fun to give them a go!! I chose to use a couple of designs 28160 Faux Postage and 26106 Alphabet AWhen I go on holiday I like to take a small journal so I can record what we do and see. Going back to Harris there is a lot of wildlife to watch ...birds, seabirds, seals and the occasional otter and whale. So this gift is for myself.
I used the alphabet wheel for the background. I used the watermark ink cartridge and embossed the whole thing with clear powder. I then sponged shades of blue and brown dye ink over the resist (to represent sand and water!!).
I used the shell image from the faux postage wheel as my featured tile. This was triple embossed to make it like a little ceramic tile.
I used corrugated Kraft card for the borders and punched holes for book rings. Then came the problem ....could not find my book rings anywhere!!! Never mind I will add then later. So I just tied a bit of ribbon for now!!
On the inside covers I used the faux postage wheel on smooth kraft card. The rollagraphs are really great for covering large areas. I also made a pocket on each inside cover to tuck in all those little bits you collect on holiday.
I still have a bit of stamping to do to finish it off but hopefully you can see that it would make a nice gift for a friend going on holiday.
