Had a great Scrappy Day with friends last weekend and managed five layouts (three have to wait to be shown) but one of them was a using Lets Get Sketchy's Week one for April's sketch. I pretty much stuck to the Sketch!
Here is part two of my Kaisercraft Antique Bazaar
mini album created for Artfull Crafts. Today I will be showing you the inner part of the album.
Presently I do not have photos or anything but decorated pages as I have
not thought about what I could use the album for yet.
binding system I used was what a friend showed me but I don't know what
it is called and I forgot to take photos! It is similiar to concertina
binding but instead of using one long piece of paper you use different
size border strips from just over an inch to various sizes up to the
thickness of your spine on your book. I will have to do another and take
progress photos as it is so much easier then other types of binding.
album cover is using a cut up cardboard box which has had the top layer
taken off it so you see the ridged inner part of the cardboard. I have
not used a lot of the Antique Bazaar Collection on the cover - only one
of the diecut sayings. The rest is decorated from my own purchased
products over the years from various shops including op shops. The ink I
have used is Tim Holtz Walnut stain. Along the spine I have adhered
ribbons and a key for interest. The closures I found in a Japan shop
but was thinking you could use thin old belts or old watch straps. The little bird is an op shop find while most of the other products are Prima.
Here is a few views of the album.
Thanks for visiting my blog today - next week I will show you the inner pages that are really easy to create. See you then!
