I made this using envelopes that have come through my door this month, ready for my travels to Spain. Why buy a book when so much paper is sent to you free? Cheesy

After opening all the envelopes out I set about splashing them with acrylic paint and alcohol inks. The alcohol inks I found were the best way of adding colour to the see-through envelope windows. The cover is some cardboard that was in a ringbinder folder I bought.

Then I stacked them together with the folds in the centre and stitched the spines together.







































Then some tinkering with posca pens and I'm ready for my travels!

What a great way to use old envelopes! I need a travel journal; this might be just the thing! It would be fun to tuck tickets, etc. up into the envelopes.
