Another week and another 2 fun challenges - first of all there is the Compendium of curiosities challenge, of course!!! And the other one is Simon says stamp and show and the theme this week is Tim holtz, so I cleverly combined the two. Well, it wasn't planned but it kinda happened.
So I had these photo insert pages I wanted to make an album with. I covered some thick board in dictionary paper and distressed it all and put corners on it. I didn't want anything too busy on the front so I opted for a simple frame with a message. When it came to stamping the message I thought I may as well try the blended batik technique from the compendium and it worked nicely but I don't fnd it anything special really. It's a lot of effort though. Maybe i'm not doing it right yet, but I expected more of a wow result.
Add some ideaology and album done.
This is the inside of the album (again picture won't go the right way round, sorry). I had these inserts from an old album I took apart, but I am desperately trying to find inserts like that. Anyone come across them? The hold standard size photos. The are removable as they just 'clip' around the spiral binding. I wouldn't mind if they were permanently bound in, either way it's those type of photo inserts I a after if you see them on your crafty travels gimme a shout!
The album is for sale in my folksy shop HERE.
