I hope your spring season has kicked off well - full of color and creativity!!
I would love to share with you a mini album I have created, mostly using the new cord, and fabric.
I'm a sucker for a cat dressed up, and do quite a lot of outfit photo shoots for my two cats, so I created this album, something that I can add to as I go each season, with new photos.
For the covers, for a bit of stability I used an Acrylic album ACR TMS: The George.
Adding some bits and pieces to pretty it up.
To frame my photo, I used a Denim Writers Block The George in emerald and sewed my photo directly onto that with the sewing machine.
The Chipboard ABC: That 70s alphabet title was simply colored in with crayon, roughly, glazed, and some tiny blings were added. The Chipboard Borderline: Frills were simply painted messily to corner the frame.
For the base of the majority of the pages, I used either Cord: Patchwork or Denim: Patchwork sheets.
Sewing the edges, and layering other fabric embellishments onto the pages, such as the Up the Garden Path borders, Denim: Garden Notes lots of the frames and brackets.
Thats why the fabric is so awesome! You can sew it on, and layer with it to create so much more depth and texture to your pieces.
You can even color in, or draw directly onto it with crayons, as I have done on the "s" page, coloring the flowers orange, to suit the rest of the page, and match up to the Acrylic - Be Mine:Cupid.
I teamed the rest of the embellishments to the fabric, and used quite a lot of personal doodling on each page. Leaving the album mostly basic, letting the fabric be the showcase of the piece.
I hope you enjoy it, and that it inspires you to make a mini album, using lots of the cord or denim sheets as your pages.
