Tropical Travelogue

This was a great project to work on.  The colours in this paper collection by Graphic 45 are bright, vibrant and full of warmth.  I wanted my travelogue to look like a vintage log of a tropical trip and was really pleased with how it came out.  The cover is three dimensional with the vine leaves and flowers creeping through the brass door knob to give an overgrown effect and set the scene for whats inside.

Please click on the video below for the full tropical experience:-) C

Happy crafting everyone:-)
