I have been waiting to show off this album. I submitted it as a class, but it was rejected. Boo. Anyway, I still love it. It's a new design from my other paper bag albums inspired by my friend Sherri who told me to try a PBA, but make it different. :)
I will just share a few hi-lights with you. My theme was steampunk so I was trying to work in metal objects.
Love this Gypsy woman on the cover, and the dark lace bordering the page flap.
I gave her a little crown that I misted and then glazed over, and then smooshed a bit because I didn't want it to be too perfect.
You can see where the flowers have been slathered with crackle medium. I love the color combo of the whole thing: rich shades of aqua and turquoise mixed with rustic reds. Love this little gear knotted into the twine. I do wish I'd made the brads silver or bronze instead of black so they'd show more.
I painted all the pages of the album with a creamy white paint, and lightly stamped some images from stash. I loved the expression on this lady's face.
A crinkled tag: my trademark for PBAs. I always like to sneak one in. I am almost out of these scrolls. Eek. Must find more.
Love this keyhole sprayed onto here: metal without using metal.
I created a pocket and flap on the backpage. :) Nifty.
And this is what was concealed. See how it opens up? :) Anyway, not sure what I will do with it now, but I'm proud of it.
Hope you like. Dee Dee
