Today, as promised, I’ll show you the rest of the album from my last post.
Let’s start where we left off:
As you can see, I made a little banner using the fabric that also covers the outsides of the book. In between every page, there is some extra paper to account for the thickness of the photos that are going to be added to the album later. Thus, you avoid the spine being to thin and the book gaping wide open after filling it with your pictures.
The french newspaper lent itself perfectly for the occasion – the bride and groom had lived together in Paris for several years before they moved to Beijing later. On the left you can see a little pocket containing a tag for some secret journaling to be added. (Yes, the flower got a bit smashed, not a biggie.)
Stamping those butterflies and splattering Mr. Huey’s onto patterned paper produced some great results and was really fun. (Why yes, that ginormous splotch of pink was placed there intentionally, what did you think?!?!)
I don’t know if you know the feeling, but whenever I make an album for anyone, I’m always thinking: Ha, the whole paper-hoarding was good for something after all!😀 (and therefore, I do not have “too much” paper, because duh! the next album could be needed really soon and then I’d better have all the supplies ready!)
Aaand that’s all🙂 Again, a huge “thank you” to Tara Anderson for that marvelous inspiration. So, let me know if you have any questions and I hope to see you here again next week!
Have yourself a lovely weekend!
