Travel Time

Hi!  Today I am sharing my travel inspired project for the Frilly and Funkie Challenge "Planes, Trains, and Automobiles" hosted by the fabulous Kathy Clement.  Here is how she describes the challenge:

"Summer is a great time to travel. For this challenge, create a vintage or shabby chic travel themed project. Think folded maps, cruise ships, road signs, compasses, passports, trains, planes or automobiles. As long as your project features a travel theme, you're headed in the right direction."

 I decided to create a travel pouch that could hold travel documentation.  I measured it out to make it large enough to hold folded up 81/2 x 11" papers and even created a mini pouch to put inside.
 I had fun creating the texture and designs on the sections of the journal.  I used a mix of inks and embossing paste on the front. 
 I created a pleat for the sides to allow additional space to store papers, tickets, stubs, mementos and anything needed to carry along on the trip.

 The inside was a mix of stamping and taped interior. I cut out a opening in the section to grab easily anything in the pocket.
 There is a  mini pouch that slips inside that is the same style of the larger pouch.  The mini pouch has pleated sides and is a 1/2 inch small in width to fit nicely inside of the larger portfolio.

 I hope you are inspired to come and play along with the Design team!

The winner will earn the chance of a Guest Designer spot here at Frilly and Funkie, and everyone who enters and follows the rules will go into the draw for the chance to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique. In addition, the Design Team will select three further outstanding entries and those creators will receive a Top Pick badge to display on their blogs!
