to start, i took a stack of paper bags and turned them into a suitcase minibook stuffed full of cards to use as the "pages" of the book. there's still plenty of room for loose photos and keepsakes too.
the blues and warm greys really make me think of the beach, so many of the cards have an ocean feel. i used dried sea stars, brass bits and pieces, and curly wave and seaweed inspired shapes. the crocheted lace really makes me think of a summer beach house.
i hope you are as inspired to take a "journey" as i was!
