The Wetlands with My Boys

Travelers Notebook Spread using Freckled Fawn October 2018 Bundle - Lydia Cost

I’m just now getting around to documenting this little local getaway that my boys introduced me to.  The green in all the photos was a perfect addition to this month’s  Freckled Fawn goodies!

While I was away visiting some crafty friends, the boys found this amazing little getaway just 10 minutes from out house, and I was so glad they shared it with me when I got back!

It was so awesome to find a new place to spend the weekends or go for an afternoon run!

I chose to sneak in some journaling about our day underneath my photo, attached by some washi.

All that was left to do was slide my TN spread in the amazing Scrapbook Inserts that I’ve housed in my beautiful Black Heart TN.

Thanks for stopping by to see a little TN documenting this morning!  I hope you have an amazing day, filled with love!

Revival Camp Session 6, Day 2

Illustrated Faith Revival Camp Travelers Notebook Session 6 - Lydia Cost

For this page in my TN, I wanted to use a vellum piece from the Flourish collection ephemera pack.  This section of session 6 was focused on waiting on the Lord’s timing, and I instantly thought of the patiently waiting for beautiful things to grow.  I picked out this little glass bell jar terrarium illustration because it instantly made me think of that!

Because it is a vellum piece, I wanted to add a background to my book page to help it stand out.

As I was out the other day, these amazing Vicki Boutin watercolors instantly popped out at me.  I picked them up and thought, “Do I really need another set of watercolors,” and the answer was a definite yes!  I have no liquid watercolors like this in my arsenal, and these are simply gorgeous, vibrant colors!

I layered on another leftover punch shadow piece, another piece of that cellophane bag from yesterday’s entry, and a glassine piece to create a whimsical cluster.  I then stitched my title over that and adhered my pretty vellum bell jar above it!

Lastly I used this great sticker from the Flourish Cardstock Sticker Sheet, a little stitching, and an Elle’s Studio Sticker for my number!  I really love the way this page turned out!
