Notebook Sized Travel Journal by Wendy Baysa

Hi! It's Wendy Baysa sharing with you today.

I wanted a small travel-sized activity journal for an upcoming vacation with my husband's side of the family. Eileen Hull's Notebook die was a perfect pairing with the Soulful Scribbles Stencil by Traci Bautista

I added a variety of pages using paper of different weights so I can watercolor, sketch, or journal on the numerous substrates. 

Added a few pretty pages, too, for inspiration while away. The above page is done with watercolors and the ATC Botanical #2 by Rae Missigman

A little collage on a page using some vintage papers and stickers. I also decided to add in linen pages so I can practice some stitchery stitches if I need some quiet time. 

I loved this bag that I had received from a friend of mine's store and saved it. Works wonderfully for a pocket page to have some papers ready to collage.

To finish it off I added some trinkets to decorate the spin up. 

As always, thank you for viewing and I hope I have inspired you to also make a travel-sized journal to play in when you are vacationing. 



  1. Beautiful Wendy! Love your reminder of how we can change up the pages when we make our own journals- it looks so cool bound together. Thanks for sharing :)

    1. Thank you so much Susan, I am definitely one that doesn't do well with repetition so it should keep me pretty busy while away, lol.

  2. What a great vacation journal. Can't wait to see it finished with all of your findings.!

    1. Thank you so much, hopefully I will remember to do a post about it :)

  3. Wendy, love this. I love the use of different papers/cloth so you have a variety of substrates. Great job!

  4. Thank you so much my friend, also for stopping by and viewing. It should definitely keep my busy when I need arting time on vacation :) xo xo

  5. Wendy--love this little travel booklet! What kind of material did you use for the cover? Can you show us a little more of it, and where will that be? Thanks!
