The A Beautiful Mess Travel Journal is made entirely out of vintage postcards. The post was written in light of the fact that there is rarely enough time to write while traveling, a problem that many face during vacations.

There are six steps that readers are prompted to follow in order to create this Travel Journal. Each one is explained in detail with the process revolving around the postcards themselves. The colorful scraps of paper were purchased at antique stores, the perfect location for faded prints of forests, mountains and blue beds of water.

After the letters are adhered to one another, notes and stories can be written on top of the aged postcards. This adds a personal touch to paper scraps that were once set by mail.
