Hi Folks, it's time for another challenge over on the Crafting with dragonflies challenge blog. The theme this fortnight is to create a mini album. It can be in any format that you like, and I chose to make a mini envelope album. I found lots of inspiration on Pinterest, and the particular album that I used, I found here
My album is very small, but I had great fun making it, and have decorated all of the tags using a dragonfly theme. I chose two images from one of our sponsors this week, called large dragonfly, and small dragonfly, which were the starting point for my project. I made a background on a piece of watercolour paper using the wrinkle free distress method, and once this was dry, I printed the two dragonflies onto the paper, and cut them out, using the size of the card as my guide. I then cut six more cards from the remaining paper and decorated them with some more stamps. I have tangled one of the dragonflies, and added some tangled flowers to another one of the cards. All of the images have been coloured with Inktense pencils and a waterbrush.
The book was made by covering pieces of chipboard with scrapbook paper, and inking and sanding the edges. The envelopes were covered with recycled dictionary paper, and also inked.
Here is the album open with the little cards inserted:
Here are all of the cards, plus the album sitting on a piece of 12" x 12" scrapbook paper, so you can see how small it really is:
I would be happy to give my little album away at the end of the fortnight to anyone that would like it. So, if you are interested, please let me know in your comment. If there is more than one person interested, I will do a random draw for the winner.
Our sponsors this week are Eureka Stamps who are offering 5 digis of the winner's choice:
