Hi Guys, hope you are having a lovely weekend. I’m sure that you have seen that The Craft Barn have been doing a fabulous mini-album tutorial and competition with sketches to follow and fabulous inspiration from the DT.
I’ve never done a mini-album and have wanted to have a go for ages so this was perfect way to ease me into it, LOL! Thanks The Craft Barn!
So here is my attempt! The Craft Barn gave us a sketch for each page of the mini-album to play with, one sketch per day. I’ve used Japanese book binding on the finished piece, threaded with fibres and calico, and you can see it on my picture for Day One. The rest of the pages where photographed before binding.
I decided to use as my theme photos from our various wanderings around our home town London, which I’ve taken over the years. With a rough and ready feel and lots of distressing.
Day One – The cover
Day Nine (I’ve swapped the sketch around slightly)
Day Ten – there wasn’t really a day ten but here is my back page 🙂
You still have a chance to join in the competition as the closing date is 15th May so get cracking!
