Literature Mini Album

I created this mini album in response to amadoreros 1,300 Subbie and Literature Challenge Giveaway that he is hosting on his YouTube Channel. You can check out all the details and "rules" by clicking above.

I started with a mini spiral that a friend gave me at the scrap retreat I went to a couple of weeks ago. She had started a project with it and decided against it and passed it on to me. I didn't get a before picture but she had already adhered paper to the front so I had to start by getting back down to the actual cover. After I took the book apart, I peeled off as much of the paper as I could by hand and sandpapered the heck out of the rest to create a smooth cover.

I then took my K & Company Life's Journey paper pad and gathered all the book/postcard papers. I used three different papers to cover the four exposed sides. Then I roughed up the edges and distressed them with Walnut Stain distress ink (surprise, surprise). I bound it back, using darker wires, with my Bind-It-All. I found Thickers that matched perfectly and placed my title. I really like how it came out.

The inside pages are so thick that you could actual use multi-media products on them. Markers, paints, sprays, and such. I don't know that you could use both sides but it would still be a fun way to keep track of the books you've read.

What do you think?

Thanks for looking! Hope this finds you happy and healthy.
