From April 1995 to December 1996 I lived in Turkey on Incirlik Air Force Base just outside of Adana. It was a pretty cool and eye opening experience of a world outside the comforts of my home country, the United States.
In my April Remember When design team package I was given Bo Bunny's Weekend Market paper and embellishment line. It has this really old world feel to the paper and it made me think of my many pictures of Turkey I have. So I dug into the mountain of pictures and pulled out some really cool scenery pictures to scrapbook with!
I got to play with some of the new Tim Holtz dies too, I used Word Play and the Tattered Garland dies. Along with an oldie but now goodie, Vintage Valiese die. I also played with some Lindy's Stamp Gang...LOVE the shimmer!
Check out the pictures below for some more description of how I created the mini suitcase album and 12x12 layout. Also below is a link to my babblings on the projects on my YT channel!
Until next time...be creative!
Suitcase Mini Album - A Glimpse of Turkey
|A picture of downtown Adana, buildings typically looked like this, more in "New" Adana which was more modern.|
|This is the inside of one of the many carpet stores. We left there with two very large carpets, a couple throw rugs and hallway runners.|
|The burgundy carpet on the left is one we bought. We watched the guy on the right make a carpet.|
|The Mediterranean Sea...very warm and salty!|
12x12 Layout - The Wonders of Turkey
|In this layout I used four different pictures showing the different places I visited while living in Turkey.|
|The alpha letters are from the new Tim Holtz Word Play die. I die cutted the letters out on the design paper then used matte accents to give it a old vintage feel to them. I also matte accented the globe at the bottom.|
|The flowers are die cutted out from the new Tim Holtz Tattered Garland die. I used the design paper and Tim Holtz Music Note tissue paper. The tissue paper was sprayed with Lindy's Stamp Gang Etheral Emerald.|
|Key hole embellishment is part of the Bo Bunny Weekend Market line.|
