On every trip during the last few years, I never leave without a travel journal or album with me. Along with a handmade and customized journal or album, I bring along with me a few necessary supplies which has now become more of a ‘standard’ set in a bag. So just want to share with you a few pages from my Japan travel journal which is sized to fit inside my handmade fauxdori (similar to this).
The cover uses an old Amy Tangerine paper from the Sketchbook collection. And stitched with alphas on the cover.
I finally got to use an old ‘June’ wood veneer which is on the inside cover. I also added in a subway map of Kyoto and Osaka.
I add in as many of the bits and pieces I pick up along the way. Some are then included into my Project Life albums. I find that the Instax printer, which I received as a birthday gift last year, has been a big help on getting most of my pages done during the trip.
I managed to collect some stamps from some of the places we went to but they were not stamped in the same exact location as the content, but of well…
Receipts from places we go to are part of my journals as this is a reminder of what we ate or bought. One thing that is new on the supplies I brought is the Wanderlust set of clear stamps and I love how versatile it is and perfect for any trip.
And I always end my travel journal with our ages during the trip.
Thanks for looking.
