How about a trip to Sydney Australia?  I created a mini book using the newest images from DarkRoom Door.  To see the new release that Rachel just announced check it out here on the  DarkRoom Door blog.

I decided to play with the new Sydney collection of Photochips, Montage, Filmstrips and Wordstrips along with a beautiful chipboard book I received as a gift.

The images are striking photos of different focal points of Sydney. 
The chipboard was painted with white acrylic paint as a base coat.  I added a layer of  glimmer mists and Dylusions inks randomly across the background.  I cut out the photos and distressed the edges and added highlights to the photos with Copics. I love the effect of the Copic on the image as it adds a slight tint.

The next image made me smile:
I added the color to the face with the Copics and decided to add a touch of carnival fun with the dice from the Fun & Games set.   

My last page uses a stamped background using the Journey Word Block Stamp.
I stamped the same background onto white cardstock to layer behind the beautiful image of the bridge and the skyline.  I pulled the word travel from the wordstrips.
