this sketch. I had so much fun making this layout.
The why of it is a $12 meal at the airport. (The reasons for it, what it was, comparisons, etc.).
The how of it.
The base paper is from a scrapbooking kit called "Destination" by Colorbox I think I bought it over 10 years ago. And there is only ONE sheet of it. And I used it all up lol. And I'm only moderately twitchy over it because it is great "Airport" paper. And I have a lot of Airport scrapping to do which is odd, because I hardly ever fly.
The "mat" is Papertrey Ink Kraft cardstock that was stamped with a foam silverware set I've had for ever stamped with Picket Fence Distress Paint. Then gone over with Wild Honey and Festive Berries Distress Stain then rubbed vigorously with an unscented baby wipe which gave a swede texture to the mat. I attached it at the top and bottom to make a pocket for more journaling.
The side of the journal tag (made with Papertrey Ink Vintage Cream cardstock) with the Clip Tips die cut (Dark Chocolate cardstock) covered with more Glossy Accents as a substitute for one of the embellishments. The compass rose from Road Trip (stamped with Dark Chocolate ink) and the Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type alphabet stickers are the other substitutes.
I moved the lines below the mat on the vellum banners. The plane and arrow stamps are from Clip Tips also.
