Journey 3: Lost and Found, almost done

The last journal prompt from the Soul Journal Yahoo Group was called “Lost & Found“.  I am about half way through and wanted to post what I have so far. 

Here is the full spread.  I used lots of my ephemera from a recent trip to San Francisco.  Some of the items include a Street Car stub, room service stub, business card, dry cleaners receipt, Starbucks cup holder, United Airlines “Heavy” luggage tag, Museum of Modern Art ticket and a few odds and ends.  Notice on the left side I have arrows pointing to a card. 

That was a hotel key that had the coolest looking Koi fish on it.  I just had to find something to use it for and this was it.  I glued down a fortune that I received from a cookie and then used glazing to color over the card, removing some of the glaze that covered the fish. 

On the back side, I cut out part of a street map, glued it down and used the same glazing on the back.

I love how this turned out.  Isn’t recycling fun?  I’ll be finishing this spread over the next few days so stay tuned for more.

Cheers!

    looking great…i thought you were supposed to ‘return’ those key cards!
    what you did with it is a terrific way to remember the time spent where you went!

    Not finished as it is but wow it is lovely. I like that you made a pocket for the card so that both sides can be seen, not to mention you can pull it out and thus it is a tiny bit interactive. Love the glazing and I can see why you liked those little Koi fish. Just wonderful!
