Memories of Travel with Neva!

Hello to all our friends in blog land, Neva here to share a layout featuring our PowderPuff Chalking Inks and Far and Away papers and quotes. 

I have demolished a major part of this collection but still had a few sheets that featured the postmarks that I thought would be really great for a layout from our visit to Berlin.


This layout came together rather quickly by using a clean design and a few embellishments from the Far and Away collection.
  • Far and Away 105 is trimmed to get the orange postmark strip.  It is 1 1/8" x 8 1/2" on the left side and 1 1/8" x 12 on the right side of the layout.  PowderPuff Chalk Ink in Barn Board inks the edges. 
  • Far and Away 105 is trimmed to 6" x 8 1/2" and 6" x 12".  PowderPuff Chalk Ink in Blue Moon inks the edges. 
  • Far and Away 104 is trimmed to 2" x 8 1/2" and 2" x 12".   PowderPuff Chalk Ink in Barn Board inks the edges.  
  • A little secret here, originally I had the papers extend across the entire double page layout, but decided I wanted to add the inked globe, so I trimmed the papers back a few inches. 
  • Far and Away 100 is trimmed to 4 1/2" x 11".  PowderPuff Chalk Ink in Barn Board inks the edges.  
  • Fiber is adhered to the back of the bottom section before it is adhered to the cardstock base. 
  • The title is die cut and inked with Blue Moon PowderPuff Chalk Ink.  I debated between using the German name or the English name . . . and went with the version that we can understand!
  • To add the globe, I first die cut a circle in a sheet of paper and placed as a reverse mask around the area I wanted to ink.  The opening is slightly larger than the globe stencil.
  • Using PowderPuff Chalk Ink in Blue Moon and an Ink Blusher, I gently blended the ink onto the white cardstock base through the stencil.
  • A sentiment from Far and Away 500 is trimmed and inked with Blue Moon PowderPuff Chalk Ink.
  • I still had a few small scraps of Far and Away 101, so it is used to back embellishments and inked with Barn Board PowderPuff Chalk Ink.
  • The same is done with the tourist card I collected while in Berlin, and with the journaling block.

  • The banners are trimmed from Far and Away 600 and inked with Barn Board PowderPuff Chalk Ink.
  • The banners are adhered directly below the fiber.
  • Wet adhesive secures the fiber in place so it appears that the pennants are attached.
