Tando Anything Goes - Travel Journal

I've actually made something for the {Tando Blog}and I've used the {Kate Crane 7 Piece Planner} as a travel journal.

I used {Decoart White Modelling Paste} through the {Letters Stencil} on the front cover and once dry, I used a selection of acrylic paints to decorate this, 3 of the dividers and the back.


I've used the {Dotstream Stencil} on every page.

I've used a variety of self made foam stamps and other stamps.

Each page has similar and different elements. And lots and lots of doodling.

Using this planner means it's easier to write info and add photos later without having to leave space like in a book style journal.

And, of course, I made a mistake.... drew the heart upside down!

I don't think it'll be looking so tidy once I stick the photos in there. I seem to have ordered rather a lot! I've ordered them in the polaroid style which will be perfect for the size of the journal as the inside pages are A5.

This lovely lot took me away with them and I love them for doing so as it's not easy taking someone who uses a wheelchair and has health issues away with you. They look after me extremely well and I try very hard to be as easy as possible to be with. Plus, of course, I bring with me wheelchair perks at the airports (well, they were a bit adrift over there) and a disabled parking badge.

It takes a lot of planning and effort on my part. And a lot of painkillers, cushions and a TENS machine all wrapped up in a huge dose of adrenaline. Staying in a house rather than a hotel also helps loads as I can chill whenever I need to in comfort.

Payback is being a bitch, but I have lovely memories to think about while I ride it out. I'm extremely lucky to have the support of my fabulous family and I wouldn't have it any other way.
