Emily's Travel Journal-Portfolio

It has been such a pleasure putting this Journal/Portfolio together for my friend Emily, who is off to Kenya to help build a school for the "Free the Children" Project... As a recently retired teacher it's so easy to see why she feels such a compassion for these young people..

The foundation of this 8.5"x11" book is corrugated cardboard backed with burlap and seriously Mod Podged ( I just LOVE that stuff)... lots of distress inks by Tim Holtz, Glimmer Mist..copper embossing powder and all treated to give it that aged and grungy look... The pages were left blank ( other than some random travel quotes) for Emily to journal or sketch..Pockets on the front, in the middle and back for "stuff"... she's promised to come back and show me how she filled it with thoughts, stories, pictures and memorabilia her latest adventure!!
