LOC Paper Bag Album Part 2

I wanted to share the final pages of the Paper Bag Album I showed you back near Mother's Day - it has been so much fun to create using Layers of Color clear art stamps

This is the album I have made this for my Mum and am taking it home with me - I put a lot of time into this because it is for someone special and I am really happy with the end result.  There are a few photos so will just let you know the stamp sets I used as I go and once again will try and keep the chatter to a minimum .

I have used the Flutterescent art stamp set, colouring the butterfly with SU Chalks/Pastels and a Blender Pen, popping the wings up on foam dots

Recycled lace is a regular feature in this album, some with pearls added

Royal Birds art stamp set is featured on a number of pages

More of the lace has a crochet flower, recycled form a doily and attached with a sparkling brad

This time I have used a large Kaiser flower and added a stamped centre from the Layers of Color art stamp set Granny's Jewelry - this set was designed with bling in mind....I love it!

The flower has been coloured with chalks

Then final page features one of my favourite LOC images - without looking do you know what it is....

Royal Birds art stamp set - that little bird just adds so much to this album, I like to repeat the times, it adds to the feel and gives a continuity without being formal!

So there you have it - thank you for looking through these posts, I know they are long - one of the things with eclectic/vintage is that there is so much to see.

You can see more of my projects in my Layers of Color Gallery, while you are there make sure you check out the other Design Team galleries there is so much inspiration waiting to be discovered!
