This month Meg gave the DT members a challenge for February, to create something either Vintage, Victorian or Parisian.
“Vintage Memory Book”
Created using a Kaisercraft wood album, painted with Gesso, and aged using various mediums. I have left the pages blank to show the gorgeous detail in each of the papers. The papers used come from several different card makers, paper packs, available through Meg's Garden. Envelopes were added, which would be perfect for holding memorabilia, photographs or journaling. Paper doilies were used to decorate, as well as, beautiful guipure laces and fussy cut elements from various Meg’s Garden papers. A range of flowers were used, and other trinkets.
The envelopes I used in this album, are a heavy duty and a high quality so they will stand up to the test of 'time' (sorry there was no brand as they have been in my stash for some time). The envelopes were perfect to create journal/memorabilia pockets throughout the album, or even to hold extra photographs. Eyelets are important, so the envelopes do not tear over time.
