One of the journals in the Journey of Journals was themed “Journey”. I thought it would be interesting to create a spread that represented my journey of life in the form of a passport.

The first of two spreads designed to look like a passport, starting with my early life. I used PhotoShop to layer illustrations to give the images a stamped look.

A selection of images I created in CorelDraw and by hand were layered in PhotoShop to create a passport collage. I altered the illustrations to look distressed and to give the appearance of being hand-stamped. Once I was happy with the layout of the pages, I printed them out on my ink jet printer and pasted them into the journal. This type of collage can be created using any combination of photographs and images that you may have using PhotoShop’s powerful layers feature. The great thing about doing this digitally is that you can open it and make changes or additions in the future for  similar or entirely new images.

The second spread features the latter part of my life using similar stamped images.

If you click on the photos, you will see a larger version of the image.
