Using a TN to Document a Weekend of Fun | Andrea Gray

Using a TN to Document a Weekend of Fun | Andrea Gray

Hey friends! A few weeks ago I attended and spoke on a panel at an event called PlannerCon in San Francisco, CA. It was such a fun weekend and I took lots of photos, of course. I thought a traveler's notebook would be the best way to document the weekend!

Using the Henley and Alexis kits - I completed several pages and am excited to share them with you today! I decided to paint the cover of this polka dot TN insert and I used the puffy alphas to make the title. 

On the first page, I stamped the MORE OF THIS stamp directly on the large photo. 

I used 3 paints to make a fun striped background and layered a journaling card from Alexis and added lots of little enamel and epoxy shapes on each color.

This page featured a lot of the Henley die cut shapes and I really enjoyed the simplicity of the florals and word strips to tell the story.

My favorite page so far is this one that captures Suzanna and I at the event. I used lots of the washi stickers for a fun cluster section at the top and used a combination of puffy alphas and dotted alpha stickers to make my title, which was a quote I said while we were crafting one night. 

The polka dot alphas didn't stand out enough against the teal puffy alphas so I outlined them in a similar color.

After this swoosh of mint pain dried, I stamped this sentiment from the Love Note stamp set.

Since I was in the mood for getting messy and using paints - I decided to give the heart stencil a try! I loved how it turned out! Not wanting to cover it up too much, I chose a transparent wax bag to show a bit of the pattern through it and tucked a trimmed piece of grid journaling card with a story on it. 

So friends, that's how I've used several recent kits and supplies to document part of this event. I sure hope you have learned something or have been inspired by something you saw here. Thanks for hanging out!

See you soon,

Absolutely love this! The colour scheme is perfection and I LOVE the mix of full photo pages and the more “scrapbook-y” ones.

Never thought of doing full photo in a TN but it looks so cool! 🖤
