This is my second mini album made with the most gorgeous Sherlock mini book collection from Meg's Garden.
As you may understand from this collection's name it's mostly vintage /masculine line of papers.
But then who says you can't make a girly mini album with the very same papers? Not me!
And as I already challenged myself to make a girly mini album, I challenged myself second time to make it about myself.
As a fact: I am the most non photogenic person on the Earth. I maybe have 5 good photos in the last 10 years. But then why not to give it a try? So I picked 5 pretty recent photos from our trip to Cyprus and made 5 paged acrylic mini album ALL ABOUT ME.
Making acrylic album was the third self challenge: the papers are single sided and you need to cover the ugly white with the same size of paper on the back. Then you want to see something clear and maybe even to see layers of photos. And the best possible glue for acrylic pages is not the best " non seen" one.
So here is an overall look of my album:
I made some textured paste swirls over the clear spaces left after I made a cluster of Sherlock's tag on my cover. I added a flowers cluster on the corner, some metal trinkets and a chipboard title covered with red embossing powder.
The inside of the cover page has this envelope pocket that it good for anything you want to keep inside: ephemera or just your thoughts.
I added the trim to cover the " ugly white" left from the cover paper cluster and added a doily and a transparent clock just for the interest.
The first page has this very small photo glued from the back side of this page and covered with a small paper circle on the front.
Again, this is the back of this page and it was made to cover the white side of the previous paper. I made my only journalling over this page.
The next page has the back glued photo and the front paper frame .
The back of this third page is a classic paper- border- photo- embellishment page.
This forth page is the most " clear" one and I wanted it to stay this way. And this is how it looks with the next, fifth page on the back.
This is how the third, previous page, looks from the forth back...
Th last , fifth page , from the front side
The back cover has another envelope for more " memories" to keep.
