Denmark Travel Album

19.7.16



Travel albums are among my favourite things to create.

What I like about them is that they document a very specific and - at least for me - a rather limited amount of time. Plus, all the photos have the same feeling and sometimes I already gather ideas of how I want to document a trip while still on vacation.


This is what happened when I spend a week in Denmark last year. I bought some blue and white watercolour gift-wrapping paper (you can see it in the photo above) in a cute little Danish store and I knew right away I wanted to use it for my travel album.

I wrote our destination with a black sharpie onto vellum paper and attatched it to the gift-wrapping paper. So simple!


While I was in Denmark I took some time to try watercolour painting myself. Even if we went in the early summer, we had rather cold weather, so I didn't mind spending some time on indoor activities. For my album I simply cut up some of the watercolour paintings to fit into the pockets. All I painted were plus sings and other minimal patterns and I really like how they turned out.



Throughout the album I included some digital templates and word art by Paislee Press (Pictures & Words No. 14). I love how the digital elements add a contrast to the textured watercolour paper.







I hope you enjoyed this peek into my travel album and see you soon for my new Portugal travel album!

    1. Danke! Ja, ich mag es auch sehr, einfarbige Aquarelle zu verwenden, weil die Seiten dann nicht so überfrachtet aussehen...
