I have an old atlas that I had as a kid that is so out of date now it is only worth decorating things with, so I dug it out and found the places my hubby and I visited in 1998 when we did a 6 week back pack tour of England, Scotland, France and Italy. I took 36 rolls of 36 exposures in that short time and I remember it costing me a fortune to process when we returned! Not only that, there was no album big enough to handle that many photos, so I set about making one from scratch that is A3 in size. It weighs a ton but is great to look through and reminis.
So I took some snaps with my digi camera of the photos in the album and printed them out teeny tiny to fit on my little cube that is only 8cm x8cm big! They look a bit purple in theses pics of the cube, but they look "normal" in real life...
I cut out the relevant cities and stamped the images on to the maps and then added the photos, glued them onto the wooden cube and added the door knob from Tim Holtz to the lid - adhered with glossy accents and hey presto, a lovely memento of a trip done many moons ago.
Oh and no project of mine goes without a dose of Distress ink, in this case Walnut Stain, which I used on the edges of the cube.
