Hello again! Today I’ve got the second half of my Plain Jane travel album. I shared the first half yesterday, leaving off with the front of the super sturdy chipboard album page. So, let’s get right back into the swing of things with the back of that page, shall we?
I added some ephemera bits and included our train ticket stubs from the trip. Everything’s sealed down with more Mod Podge.
I tend to save little bits and pieces and put them in boxes or leave them hiding in my suitcase, not to be seen again until we start packing for the next trip, so it was nice to actually get these out and finally do something with them.
On the next envelope page, I printed another altered version of a photo from the exhibit directly onto the envelope. I Glimmer Misted the page before sealing it and adding some metal snowflakes.
The image size was almost exactly twice the size of the envelope. Rather than shrinking or cropping it I printed the two halves of the image on top of one another by running the envelope through the printer twice.
On the back of the envelope is a photo of some of our group during a walk through Central Park.
The metal brad serves as something like a little handle to open the envelope flap.
This picture was applied to the envelope with the same paint transfer process I mentioned in yesterday’s post. It left the photo looking somewhat ghostly, which I really liked. That white text at the bottom was added using one of my favorite Zig pens – my white Posterman paint pen. It’s got a super fine tip and a great flow so it writes just as easily as a regular old ball point pen.
The photos on the back of the envelope are of the lot of us along with Duke after his fantastic concert at the museum.
The inside of the back cover has a photo I took with my phone during the (really really really) long wait for the train at the station in Atlanta. The photo is framed with a bit from the Basically Bare Paparazzi set. It’s colored with alcohol ink and spritzed with some Glimmer Mist.
The film strip frame keeps the little photo from getting lost among the dimensional embellishments around it.
That’s it for this album. I hope you liked it; I certainly had a great time putting it together!
Thanks so much for looking!
