Setting up my Travel Journal
If you've been reading my blog for a while, you'll know that I love journalling. I especially love keeping memorabilia and photographs in my journal, as well as pretty paper and decor. If you haven't already seen my posts, you can check out my intro to "scrapbook" journalling here and my post on how to start a scrapbook journal here.
So, what's a journal addict to do when setting out on a journey? Create a travel journal especially for the trip, of course! I'm leaving to Zimbabwe later this week to go visit family and I am super excited! So, I grabbed a blank journal in my collection, raided my stash for scrapbook paper, embellishments and watercolour paints and got started!
I sometimes find sitting with a completely blank journal intimidating, so I love that this journal already provides a framework for me to jot away every day (whether full-on pages of writing or just a few bullet points about what happened that day). I've also made sure that there is plenty of space for storing ticket stubs, brochures, labels, leaves/flowers and anything else that I want to keep. When I get home, I can then print out a few of my favourite photos of the trip and add them for that final touch.
Instead of taking photos, I thought it would be fun to film a flip-through of my journal before I leave, as well as share what's in my travel journal kit. Once my journal is filled in, I'll be sure to share the final product with you all!
I hope you enjoy this video :)
