Shabby Chic Mini Album

This is a design team project for The Piece by Piece!  I was lucky to have received some beautiful laces, resin pieces, metal embellishments and the so pretty Prima Epiphany paper collection to work with! I added tons of layers and each page has a lace pocket stuffed with tags from the collection, as well as other Prima collection and even wooden tags by Prima!  I've also added a tiny configuration box using the packing that the wooden charms came in from the Epiphany collection. I made a few magnetic pages as well! the album was made from scratch using chipboard. it got a little bulky adding all the pretty elements that I had to make a clip to hold it closed! I added tons of texture by using acrylic paint mixed with sand on top of all the embellishments. I even used the Prima distress tool and distressed all the papers in the collection and added a shabby chic touch by sewing every single paper/tag as well! There is soooo much to see that the pictures will do it more justice that I can with words, so enjoy! There is also a link to the YT video to hear about more details!
