Bookfolding - Travel

 Here is another of my Bookfolding Projects using a pattern from my Debbi Moore CD.  Once I had finished the folding I used the width of a tearing ruler to fold against to fold back the spare pages thus making the word "Travel" stand out more.  
 I prefer to highlight the word/image with either inks or pens and this time I have used a dark brown Spectrum Noir pen to highlight the folded piece of the page.
 As the book is associated with "travel" I have used backing papers and images from my Crafter's Companion Summer 2015 Inspiration Magazine to decorate the front, back and spine of the book.
I have finished off the book with some stamped images, grosgrain ribbon and some flowers a friend sent me.

I am entering this bookfolding book into the following challenges:

Fab n Funky - Recycle/upcycle (I have recycled a hardbacked book)
Word Art Wednesday - Anything goes
Brown Sugar - Anything but a card
Come and Get It Challenge - Travel/vacation
Creative Craft Cottage - Anything goes
Craft You Passion - Always anything goes
