My Other Creations: Travel Folders using Jane Davenport Washi Tape

"Road Trip" is this week's theme at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog.  I decided to make some mini-folders with a travel theme:

I started with some manila folders I had in my stash (about 5" x 8" in size).  I covered them with scraps of gray, white and black patterned paper.

Next I painted mostly everything white.

I added another layer of white and when the paint was dry (overnight), I added some Jane Davenport Washi tape.

Next I smeared on acrylic paint, then whited it out a bit, then added some stamping, more paint, etc.  I painted both the insides and the outsides of the folders.  I also drizzled some Jane Davenport scented ink down from the top edges and sprayed it with water.

I cut patterned paper into some scallop-shapes for the borders of my folders.  I went back in with a black Sharpie and outlined some of the stamped circles and scallop edges.  I typed some sentiments out on my We R Memory Keepers typewriter and added those on.  Here are the final results:



On this one, I also added a Tim Holtz wildflower that I cut with my Sizzix Big Shot.

Here are the supplies I used that you can get at Simon Says Stamp:

I do love the thought of road trips, so I can't wait to see how you interpret our theme.  be sure to upload your creations to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog for your chance to win a $50 voucher to the Simon Says Stamp store!

  2. Wonderful folders, Andrea! I am wondering what you will put inside...travel receipts, photos, souvenirs?? Love the bright colors, hidden words, and I especially like your "travel is rebellion" - as I thought of what that meant to me it made sense. Traveling is rebelling against our daily life, and I love to do that! hugs, Maura

  9. Great seeing the before and after photos and my favorite part is the mark making. It's amazing how you take the chaos of the random collage bits and pull everything together so cohesively (and perfectly). I've no time to make anything for this week but just like you, I LOVE the idea of a road trip so I will dream, instead, of traveling in one of these.
