Astrid makes and when she kindly shared some gorgeous freebie papers, well I just couldn't resist. This was a great little project to make as it was so easy to just pick up whenever, and the pages were stuck with d/s tape (boring job) but which is a nice easy thing to do when watching t.v.
My little folder was made following this video here
My cover started out as a piece of grey card, I used embossing paste through a couple of stencils then gave it a coat of gesso. It was then sprayed, inked, sprayed and inked to within an inch of it's live, but now it has a lovely soft leather feel to it, I was afraid at one stage that it might disintegrate! The floral embellishment is paperclay, coloured with DIs and then given a coat of Glossy Accents.
The papers, all freebies from Astrid - Thank you - had a little distressing and extra stamping with Weathered wood DI. A little bit picture heavy...
And the back cover was given the same 'treatment'. The album has lots of pockets to store journalling notes and photographs.
