Mini Album

I love creating mini albums to hold some of my favorite photos.  Here is a project I worked on recently.


After gutting an encyclopedia from the early 1900's  I dry brushed the cover.  I sewed fabric along the inside spine and then using waxed linen, I stitched in some signatures of Bazzill cardstock.  The outside was adorned with plenty of vintage embellishments. wool felt, lace and what-not.  While the inside contained the new Janet Hopkins printed paper line by Bazzill. 

I also Zuttered in some pages to the back cover.  After embellishing I glued the entire album onto a thick scalloped piece of chipboard that I had painted silver.  I can't wait to add some photos.

I love working on projects that can be completed in a weekend.  Here's a peek at one of the inside pages. 


Hmmm...what project should I tackle this weekend?
