I love working with metal foil-I wanted a more vintage shabby chic look for a Christmas album to match the Anna Griffin paper I have saved from several years ago. I still need to add a few more embellishments to the binding and inside the book but I really like the way it turned out.
I love the way this project turned out-Erin's baby pictures. Hard to believe she is a senior in HS this year. Anyways I did this mini book using plain black envelopes folded in half and TC Bella paper line. I cut the covers out of black art board and covered with paper-used my favorite adhesive from Kokuyo. I cut the flower out from an old book page and inked it with Tsukineko ink and covered it with Diamond Glaze. I used the bind it all to bind the whole album together.
I finally got my travel journal from our big family European vacation-I still love Paris the most. I didn't include all the journaling as some of it was too raw and emational for me to post about my feeling at the Dachau concentration camp.
In this book I made the evelopes that hold all the small little pieces that would have otherwise gotten lost in the book. I also used the Bind it all-amazing how much easier it is to bind assorted items when you read the directions,
