Hi everybody! Hope you are all enjoying your weekend. I still look forward to weekends, although as I don't work any more, all the week is work free for me. Must be a throw back to all those working years, where the weekend was always something to look forward to!
Yesterday I made a quick album in which to put my postcards for the *Auntie Cissie and Jason Saga*. It had to be quick, as I am busy doing lots of other things in *real-life*, although I hate all those nasty but sometimes necessary errands and other things which keep me from crafting and painting! I cut the pages from a pad of craft paper, made a fold along the long side, and then folded the page together, to give a double page for 2 postcards. I snipped off the inside corners, to make it easier to fold, and stuck the outside edge with DST. Made 26 pages, so I have a pocket for each week of the year. The covers have been made from a corrugated cardboard box. The covers have been distressed a bit, and then partly painted with a quick coat of gesso. I lined the inside covers with some cardstock to give them a bit more stability, and then fixed the whole thing together with my Zutter BIA. I decorated the front cover with *photos* of my protagonists and the first pages with some old ads for hotels in Vienna and a few other travel related embellishments. The postcard can then be tucked into the pocket each week.
I am really looking forward to getting the new travel destination on Monday and starting the new postcard!
So that's all for today. Hope you all have a wonderful day, take care, and thanks for dropping in!
