Hi you all! It's been a chilly day here, but hope the sun will come for a visit tomorrow! I got woken up early by the postman again, bringing a parcel for the next-door neighbour. I wish I could sleep so soundly as all my neighbours evidently do!
I kept myself warm with crafting, painting and cooking, a good combination! I decided to make another album. The cover has been made from cardboard which has been painted with pink and then gesso to tone it down a bit, and stamped with script and diamonds while it was still wet, which gives a nice texture. I then built up layers with hessian, ribbons, lace and paper strips. The focal image is a lovely Leonardo lady from Lost Coast Designs, stamped with Adirondack Espresso onto some packaging, and distressed with vintage photo Victorian velvet and antique linen DIs. I used some pretty netting under the image. As the lady looks very dreamy, I added the sentiment 'Dream'. I used a Prima flower and leaves and some scraps of ribbon and a few charms as embellishments.
The backside has been made from cardboard from an old drawing pad, covered with white, embossed paper and distressed with Victorian Velvet.
There are 50 pages inside waiting to be drawn on, doodled or scribbled on! I am linking to the 'Sentimental' Challenge at Fashionable Stamping and to 'so sentimental' at the Craft Room and 'Dreams' at PanPastel Blog
Have a nice day you all, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!
