Good Morning. I hope everyone had a wonderful long weekend. My work involves the stock market so I was off for Presidents day. I have been plugging away in my little "paper studio" and have a lot of really cool things to post. Todays project du jour is a little mini album I made for my niece (sadly everyone was sick so I was unable to give it to her on her recent visit) But I am sure she will love it. I wanted to keep the cover very masceline but stay true to my style so I added in alot of feathers and metal pieces along with the flowers.
I didn't take a lot of pictures this time because I have actually made this style before so the inside is pretty much the same as my princess book. One difference is the closure. I actually found an idea on the web (Thank you Kathy from paper phenomenon) where you insert one of the key hole pieces inside the ornate plates from Tim Holtz Idea-ology collection and as you can see it really turns it into a statement piece. I used magnets (hidded inside the strap and the other imbedded in the book cover) to keep it secured.
I did want to showcase a new flower techniqe that I learned off of one of the blogs I follow, What a beautiful Mess. You can find the instructions but clicking on the following link http://what-a-beautiful-mess.blogspot.com/2012/01/blue-daze-flower-tutorial.html She really is a very talented
artist and scrapbooker and has a lot of wonderful tutorials on her blog.
