Up Up and Away Wallet

This wallet was created using techniques from Inventive Ink: Colorful Mixed Media Effects on Kraft Tex, a C&T Publishing product that is a paper that wears and performs a lot like leather. The pattern is a modified version of the Up, Up and Away Passport Wallet, which is a pattern available on Craftsy. The mark for snap placement on the pattern was too low, so I had to move the snap and cover the hole with a triangular patch of kraft tex. An unexpected design element! Because the inks were water reactive, I gave the wallet a coating of Carnauba Automotive Wax after I finished the paper embellishments. It dries clear, and gives the paper a more leathery, flexible texture. It also has that lovely new car smell now!
