Riga in my Traveler’s Notebook

1

I sometimes struggle with wanting to make my layouts in my travelers notebook as rich and textured as my regular layouts but don’t want to damage the already “exposed” pages by making them lumpy and bumpy which can indent or even rip the paper over time.  Stencils and masks on a background is a great way to create the illusion of layering and depth while keeping it flat.

The layered floral dies from Altenew are another way to include lots of variety and pops of color from my patterned papers in a small space! The one I used is called Fantasy Floral 3D

I think die sets are pricey and therefore an “investment” I try not to make impulsively. This die set is one that I know I will be able to use over and over and every flower can be completely unique!

I hope there was a tip or two in this post that you find useful especially if you are feeling your way forward in the Travelers notebook genre like I am !
