I wanted to share the Paper Bag Album I showed you back near Mother's Day (you can see it here), I had started it and am happy to be able to show you the finished product! It is always fun for me to create using Layers of Color clear art stamps, this time was no exception - I love the journey they take me on as I use each one of them - it makes each project a pleasure!!
I have to let you in on a little secret - I have made this for my Mum and am taking it home with me (in 7 sleeps - wahoo!) - so Mum, if you are looking at this - please shut your eyes...LOL! I did out some extra work into it because it is for someone special and I am really happy with the end result. There are a few photos so will just jet you know the stamp sets I used as I go and keep the chatter to a minimum (well, I will try! LOL!)
The sentiment is a SU Rubon from a RAK and the image is from the Vintage Rose art stamp which had been coloured with SU Chalks/Pastels and a Blender Pen
The tags in this album are very eclectic, the back one has lace down each side and the front one has a RubOn and those adorable flowers are from the Merci Bouquet art stamp set, I have chalked them and added a small pearl to the centre.
I have tried to leave some bigger spaces for photos or journaling, I love this particular lace/braid and added half pearls to the centre of each . The words cut from the DP read. 'Mon Amie' meaning 'my friend' in french - so true of my Mum who has a french background!
I have used the Butterfly Collector art stamp set colouring them with the Chalks and adding Kindy Glitz for that shimmer these images work so well with.
