Donna Salazar Guest Designer - Journey of a lifetime mini album part two

Hi everyone here is part two of my mini album I created for Donna Salazar as a Guest Designer.  This album ended up being quite large in the end but I love how it has come together and it is certainly a treasure for me and future generations.  The papers that have been used are the Antiquities both the 8 X 8 and 12 X 12 inch versions and some Artistic Collection Papers along with the Crafty Chronicle.

For this page another colour (blue) has been added to the page to create a colour "pop" and works well with part two of the page which is below it.

This page features a Rose Creation flower spritzed with River Mossy Smooch Spritz, a border from the Antiqities border dicut page and some punched butterflies.

Another Rose Creation flower is on the Guadeloupe page this time with River Mossy and Caramel Latte Smooch Sprays.

With this page I have added a banner feature using the banner and journal spot from 12 x 12 diecut page from the Antiquities Collection. I have used the banner die and cut out two banners. The upper banner has just been cut to be a plain triangle and the journal spot is cut in half.

 Some more sprightly sprocket diecuts feature on the next two pages of the Panama Canal. Once again I have created a pocket page for the journalling Tabs as this was just such an amazing experience so lots of journalling was done.  On the second page I printed out a collage of the photos I took while on the journey with a non digital point and shoot camera. Making the photos smaller makes it so the quality of them is a little better. The middle photo is a copy of a postcard - an idea if you have no photos or for photos you would not be able to get.

 Tobago Island was our next stop and as this little island had shrines everywhere I thought I would add these jewellery findings onto this page to represent the shrines.

 I have kept this next page about the Galapagos Islands fairly basic so that the photo and a copy of a drawing I did of a tortoise at age 13 stand out.

On the Marquesas Page I have added a Dragonfly diecut cut from a Fanciful flight die along with some flowers and corrugated card. 

A page on French Polynesia  which includes the Sprightly sprockets and some brighter flowers.

This page about Tonga is a softer page and the flowers are from the diecut sheet from the Antiquities Collection. These flowers have been lightly spritzed with River Mossy  and Caramel Latte Smooch spritzes. The background has been inked with Truffle Mixed Media Inx.

 This is my last journalling page as you can see the novelty of writing about places had worn off - not a lot said about Fiji or New Zealand! I have used the Dragonfly die again as well as the banner die. I cut the banners down to make a banner across part of the page.

and finally a basic back cover saying when the journal was made and when the journalling was done.

Thank you for looking at my album!
