Journal Block

I'm _finally_ getting started on the album for our trip around the world in 1996. This is the journal block for this album. It's designed to identify the date, place, weather, etc. without always having to do so in the journalling elsewhere on the page, and to make it pictorial where that can convey the meaning without more words. I'd hope this will help unify the book, as well, since there will be many colors, fonts, etc. I kept a diary, so I have lots of journaling content.

 

The birds at the left are a play on our family name "Crane." May also use Kanji symbol for Crane when I get to the pages for Asia. I've made brushes from some clip-art for the weather--rain, sun, hot & sunny or partly cloudy. The globe is another brush adapted from clip-art. Date created from Expedition Passport Stamp brushes. Cranes, globe, weather symbols adapted from resources on my computer. Grunge effect by using "dirt" brush in Corel Photo-Paint X4.

 

I'm just getting started on the album, and it's worth it to me to get this element "just right," so please feel free to offer suggestions and comments. Thanks for looking.

Barbara this is really creative! I think that will be a great addition to your book. Like you said, some pages speak for themselves without journaling, but have your tag on there allows you to remember what was going on that day. This is a big assignment, wow around the world. I can't wait to see it! Good luck!

I love this idea! I do a lot of travel albums, too, and really like the idea of having a consistent element to put on the page for the key information. I really like the design you've created here. I can't wait to see more of the album.

What a fantastic idea! I really like what you have done here. If I ever do a big trip, I hope I remember to include something like this!

This is such a creative idea and it looks perfect on your pages! I've really enjoyed seeing your layouts. I also love how you've made variations in your layouts, too -- such as different fonts, journal pages, and frames. You've made them fit the photos and moods of each place. This is going to be a gorgeous album!!
