Wanderlust Layout

by Deb Adams

Today I want to share a double layout with a Vintage Travel theme

featuring chipboard titles from Scrap FX.

The focal point on these layouts are copies of original postcards from a private collection.

I scanned & printed them with my ink jet printer onto heavy card stock.

I sealed both sides of each card with Judikins Microglaze to protect the ink.

They hint at a pretty cool story about a brave & adventurous woman,

Auntie Ria (Victoria) who left Australia from Fremantle, WA on the ship shown below.

The other postcard shows she had reached Colombo, Ceylon.

I would have loved to have read her full letters sent home, but unfortunately do not have those.

I continued the Indian theme through to the other page with Elephant stamps from Graphic 45,

real Sari cloth strips, gold & jewels.

The Moroccan tile stencil brings out the blue in the exotic girls clothing & ties the pages together.

This image is another original postcard from that era.  The Vintage map includes both Australia & Ceylon.

The Journey & Wanderlust chipboard titles are painted with Turquoise Art Alchemy paint.

I am certain her story included a grand adventure.

Her handwritten postcards are so inspiring even 115 years on!

Thanks for taking the time to read.

Cheers for now
