Family Travelling Journal II - inside!

As I promised, here is the second part of the photos of my "Family Travelling Journal" - my part of the travelling art journals project we are launching for the second time just now:)
I'm very excited, waiting to see what will happen with the family photos I put in the envelope in the back...
I can't wait to see the again - in the new surroundings, interpretations... this is one and only chance to get a priceless treasure with not only our family memories but also my art friends talents closed inside of the very old book!

So, here is what I did to the book - I didn't want to cover the beautiful old pages with paint: there were beautiful old stamps, handwritten notes, underlined texts... So I only added a bit here and there!


Starting pages:




Page with title and first family photo ( with baby Finn ;))


And the inspirational page - information about the project. I decided to use only 2 colors of ink on the pages - and a very soft pencil, not more! Starring: my dad, Krzysiek in the age about... 20?
 Text:
Let's create together this family album - one you go through with a cup of tea or coffee in your hand. Let's write a completely new story...



Finally double page: "Memories-Secrets" - with gesso, inks, pencil and a lot of layers!
Starring: Jadwiga and Władka, my husband's grandma and her sister;)



And here is the last page (I showed  it yesterday) - with envelope full of old photos and the last photo embellished by me:) Starring: My dad, Krzysiek and my uncle, Bogdan - playing football. 

I hope you enjoyed the project - I surely did!!! I can't wait to get it back in my hands...

Supplies: Ranger: Glossy Accents, Cracle Accents, Archival Ink: Jet Black, Library Green, gesso. Tim Holtz:  File Tabs, metal cornrners and embellishments, stamps: Wendy Vecchi, 7 Gypsies, Sizzix, letters: Sizzix (Tim Holtz - Word Play, Stenciled), elements: Sizzix - Paula Pasucal. Others: twine, brads, lace, washi tape, rubbish from my collection and tea stain.

Strona z babciami przepiękna, tajemnicza i nieco mroczna...najbardziej działa mi a wyobraźnię.
Poza tym piękne i proste połączenie kolorów- kawy i zieleni!

Czy wzięłaś pod uwagę, że pewna obśliniona z zachwytu psychopatka może Ci go nie oddać? :D
Żartuję, oddam (chyba... :P) :D
Baby Finn jaka zdziwiona :)

This to me makes much more sense of journalling. I love that you can be less formal than with scrapbook layouts with your family photos. Such a beautiful project. Hugs, Buttons x
