'One Day' || By Elisa Ablett for Viva Las Vegas Stamps

Guest Inspiration Team : Elisa Ablett

Hi Viva Las Vegas Stamp fans,

Elisa here from the Guest Inspiration team with my next project for you featuring a load of gorgeous VLV Stamps.

My husband went on his first international trip last year to Spain for work and was under strict instructions to take loads of photos for me to Scrapbook with and create a travel journal for him.

I decided to create a travel themed Scrapbook page with one of his snapshots of the Basilica in Barcelona (it was under construction). Add some vintage themed papers from 13Arts designed by Fiona Paltridge to the VLV stamps with a bit of mixed media and I am so happy with the result. This design can be easily reproduced as an Art Journal page or as a page in a Travel Journal. 

Let's take a closer look at the great VLV stamps that feature -

The 'Map of the World' Stamp was used with great effect in the background along with a few of the great background stamps from Plate 1495.

To fit in with my vintage travel look for the layout, I stamped 'One Way Sign' and 'Pointing Finger' and then coloured them with a Distress Oxide Ink Pad. I also included a Kraft Pocket Envelope to slip train tickets, entry tickets, memorabilia etc.underneath the photo cluster.

I stitched old sewing patterns to cardstock to create my own background paper, this is a great tip for those who love junk journalling!

To draw your attention to the photo cluster. add background stamping 'X Circle' and 'Row of Distress Lines' along with a wood veneer arrow and a cityscape die cut.
