Ideas for your travel journals

As you can see above, sky is really the limit when it comes to what you can use in scrapbooks or journals. There is no right or wrong in art anyway. Its your thing so you can do whatever you feel like.

The postal stamps I used in this journal were the duplicate stamps from the envelope which I exchanged with my Sri Lankan friend while I was there.

In my first travel journal on Europe, I wrote too much. In my second on Dubai, I wrote only in bullet points. In my Sri Lankan journal, I decided to keep it very simple and not write at all. So this one is all visual. Hope you enjoy the pictures.
