When I joined Studio AE last month I had plans brewing in my head for how I was going to use those stamps. I wanted to do a minibook and use some of my favorite Disney photos, but the problem came down to journaling. Who do I journal to? I spent maybe a week trying to figure that out, and decided to journal to someone who hadn’t visited the parks. I included some of my thoughts and memories but also the stuff I knew I wanted to remember 50 years down the road. That the monorail only covers 15 miles right now, that Hollywood Studios had undergone a name change, that Epcot currently has 9 future world pavilions and 11 countries.
So when the stamps came in the mail yesterday I got right to work. I pulled out my Jenni Bowlin inks (Spiced Tin, Lemon Drops, Seed Packet, and Chili Powder) some white cardstock (bazzill) and a scrap of Kraft (bazzill) I printed my journaling on the white cardstock trimmed the paper to 5.5×3 and then stamped the word that worked best with that photo under in different colors until I reached the bottom. It took about an hour to do all the stamping, and for my first real stamping project I’m quite happy with it.
Without further adu the minibook: (the title does use some Echo Park stickers and a pen)
