Stamping Cruise Album

We made this album in the first class.The colours are gorgeous!
I still have to add my own finishing touches and some photos of course.
The colours are Ice Blue and Bronze Precious Metal paint.
7 Gypsies gaffer tape binds the cover.
We all received a new collage stamp which we stamped and highlighted with the Crayon Resist technique. How cool does it look? Love it.
The title '2012 Stamping Cruise' is chipboard which was painted in Ice Blue with a touch of Bronze.
Glassine paper crumpled and placed under the collage.

There is a page for each day to journal. We stamped lines from the Calendar set and shells from the Seashells collection.
Was supposed to write in it each day but was too busy trying to fit in as many activities as possible on the ship!

Itinerary of the cruise

We added kraft tags,small and large glassine envelopes,and translucent envelopes through out the album.
Also included in the kit was a pad of 6x6 seaside papers which I forgot to photograph.
Will post more pictures when I have completed the album.
It is going to be a treasured keepsake!
