[Magical orchestral music] We’re driving over to Ithaca’s wizarding weekend! I’m so excited for it! I can’t wait. I have no idea what to expect
but I have a feeling it’s gonna be really fun. It’s really beautiful here
and it’s early, but I am read.y I’m so excited. We’re gonna be performing and
setting up a table and selling cute things, I’m wearing my little bowtruckle.
I can’t wait! Ahh! [Magical orchestral music] This looks like it’s gonna be amazing.
There’s lots of places to walk and I’m excited to go like, walk around and see
everything. This is awesome, everyone’s dressed up! The weather is beautiful!
I’m so ready for this. That went by really fast! This was a
really fun day. The performance was really fun because it was like, right here in
the middle of this huge area so a lot of people heard me playing and came over!
It’s just been a completely magical day. Events like this remind me really just
the scope of how big the Harry Potter fandom is and so many people’s lives
have been touched by these books and it’s really fun just getting all
together in one space! There have been amazing costumes, there were a lot of
really cool booths, I was telling my plush toys and my new felt handmade pins and
it was just a really fun day! So if you live anywhere near Ithaca New York,
definitely keep an eye out for the wizarding weekend next year because it
was really fun. To start off my travelers notebook spread about Wizarding weekend,
I’m printing a few photos on the Prynt Pocket printer. You plug your phone into
it, select a photo, and it prints onto Zink sticker paper which has adhesive on
the back and that makes it super convenient for travellers notebooks! I’m
still pretty new to this printer, so I haven’t quite figured out the best way
to edit the photos to correct for the color difference from what’s on my
screen and I also wish I didn’t have to take my phone case off in order to use
it, but for saving quick memories, I like it a lot and it’s added so much to my
travel journal. I love being able to print small photos so easily, otherwise I
keep putting it off and they just say on my phone forever! This printer was sent
to me by the wonderful Amy Tangerine whose YouTube channel is incredibly
creative and inspiring. She sells these printers in her online
shop at amytangerine.com if you would like one too! Now that I have my main
elements ready to go, I am arranging them on the pages and gluing them down. This
journaling card is from a shop I really love called in a creative bubble, by the
way, I will link to everything I’m using and mentioning in the video description
below. I’m using pencil to write out a header for this spread, then inking over
it with tombow mono drawing pens and some faux calligraphy. The location is
written with a prismacolor brush marker which I’m still getting used to using.
Then, I’m underlining the date with some metallic washi tape I received in a
subscription box! One thing I like to do lately to tie in the photos with my
various handwritten elements is to freehand a messy border around them and
after adding a bit more of that washi tape, I’m jotting
a few blocks of text about our trip to Ithaca for Wizarding weekend! I like to
use a really fine pen for this and fill up the bigger spaces around the spread.
After I labeled the photos with little captions, I added some Harry Potter
inspired doodles to the remaining open spaces. My journaling style has been
pretty simple lately. I definitely could be using more stickers or color but I
find that I’m happier with it when I keep it a bit more focused. And there’s
my traveler’s notebook spread for Ithaca’s Wizarding weekend! I hope that you
enjoyed tagging along with me for the event and seeing how I documented it
after. Thanks for watching and I’ll see you soon!
