Today Neil is with us to share his stunning mini album. I just love how he made it and love the colour scheme too.
I kept the outside of the album simple and just added some colour using the tangled yarn mask and Distress Inks around the edges
The basis of my mini album is a sheet of Double sided 12 x 12 cardstock, a couple of cuts and folds to create the base and some pockets; like this.
When you open the first section you can see theme emerge!
I've stamped the sewing images in Archival inks onto the pocket. Stamped the cotton card and wound it with Bakers Twine and attached to the pocket with a velcro fastener.
I've continued the same over the rest of the pages.
What I like is that there are plenty of pockets and places to slip things into. I've added pullout paper elements on the left side. The middle area has had the top tag as well as a bottom tag too, there's a little accordion fold fold booklet in the right hand pocket and a little needle book too!
I've stamped and coloured all of these with images in Distress inks.ready to add some photos and writing. To finish I added some "stitching" with fineliner.
