In each person's life there are always highs and lows and how we react to these moment have so much to do with the influences of family and social environment when we were young. My tale is about growth, about how much I have learnt through relationships with family, friends and co-workers.
I used Buzz and Bloom's Unmounted Stamps Pretty Things III which are both elegant and perfect for this project. For an added twist, instead of pigment ink, I used thick acrylic paint in dauber bottles and stamped the designs on transparencies. This gave the images a chalky, old style look I wanted to use for the album.
Continue stamping other transparencies, adding a folded strip of patterned paper on one end. I have decorated the transparency with a a cardstock tree on one page and a sentiment on another for more interest.
Complete the album by binding the pages either by sewing or simply punch holes in the sides of the pages, then using jump rings which may be decorated with ribbons.
