London Calling

Here is another page I added to my travel scrapbook. It’s of London…day 1 of our Europe trip in 2009. Still working on the rest of the trip pages!

I decided to keep this page vintage looking since that style reminds me of London. I adored the photo of my husband standing next to the quintessential London icon..a red phone booth and of course the London Bridge.  Both photos were distressed on the edges with a paper distresser and inked. Our hotel gave us a map to use while we were there, I kept it and used a tag punch to cut out all the places we saw. Then I used a bigger tag punch to cut out red cardstock tags, I crumpled these, inked them with navy ink and attached the smaller tags to the front of them. I strung the tags across the page using bakers twine and my handy dandy tiny stapler.  I also used London sights entrance tickets as page elements..using the same technique as the red tags.  Kraft scrapbook paper was used as the base, punched out a border on the side and attached navy blue paper to the bottom. As a finishing touch I applied white henna-like pattern rub-ons to the page. There is so much Indian culture there that I just had to incorporate that into my layout.
