Travel wallet


The Just for Fun  challenge is "A different Format", so I thought I would decorate a 7 gypsies wallet that has been in my "to alter" drawer for ever.

We are going to Paris later in the year and we have lots of different travel documents and tickets to keep safe.  I decided to make a travel wallet so that everything can be kept together safely.
I covered the outside and the inside with 7 gypsies paper and added gaffer tape to the inside and tissue tape to the front cover edges.  I made a little tag using a Tim Holtz label and 7 gypsies stickers.  Then I have added two stamped images, both by Tim Holtz for Stampers Anonymous - I stamped the Eiffel Tower on tissue paper and adhered it with matte medium, and I stamped the French stamp on to a paper background using red archival ink.  I added a rub-on post mark, distressed it all a bit with Vintage Photo Ink and then I sprayed the whole front cover with gold Perfect Pearls mist.

Thanks for looking. X
