Wanderlust. If you have never experienced to urge to wander, travel, and roam the world (or outside your home), you might have felt this way over that last year. Even if you weren’t a big traveler before, a worldwide stay home order in 2020 made many people miss trips to nearby places. To honor the wanderlust many of us feel, and some of us for the first time, we asked our Creative Team to reflect on their own feelings of wanderlust. Let’s see what they created.
Jill satisfies her wanderlust by documenting great vacation moments from years past.
“When I saw the papers in the Wisteria Lane Collection, I knew I wanted to use them to tell the story of visiting the Chihuly museum of glass art in St. Petersburg, Florida, with my boyfriend a few years ago. The stamp set’s “best day ever” really fit this page because it was a super happy day, so much fun to look back on! I wanted to convey this delight with plenty of small embellishments and confetti of glitter dots and sequins.
The soft yet colorful designs seemed a perfect backdrop for the vibrant colors in the photos. I also knew that I wanted to pick up the black in the photos with the You + Me = Good Times chipboard. This sentiment epitomizes what I write in my journaling about this trip, how much we enjoy exploring museums together when traveling.
I pulled out the red in the photos with puffy alpha stickers from an earlier kit and the travel die cuts I had left from last month’s My Escape Collection. The cute little cameras helped me tell the story of just how much we enjoyed snapping photos of Chihuly’s vibrant glass sculptures. From the puffy white words, I chose “trip” and the three hearts, which I nestled in my embellishment clusters.
The washi tape from the Wisteria Lane Travelers Notebook Memory Keeping Kit was also the perfect way to ground each of these areas and build in additional touches of color. If you’re not traveling yet this summer, you can satisfy your wanderlust as I did here by documenting a favorite vacation day from the past!”
Don’t let the wanderlust get you down. Instead, try expressing it in a similar way that Odessa, Audrey or Jill have here. Share with us your wanderlust layouts by tagging @cocoa_daisy on social media or posting to the Cocoa Daisy Fan Page. Make sure to visit our Pinterest page for more inspiration.
