Vanilla Sugar cont

So the vanilla Sugar challenge for this month has now gone live. And the challenge this month was to make a fabric mini album.

I have made quite a few fabric albums in my time so the challenge this time was to try and do something a bit different.

So my pages started out as a curtain pelmet sample i was given a few months ago. I Actaully got 3 of them bit i have the other one eyeballed for a Donna Downey style inspiration journal, watch this space, lol. I knew i had Websters papers and 7 gypsies stickers that would match perfectly with the colurs in the fabric, how sad is that, lol

I made my pages tall and thin, like me!!!! i cut them out, wadded them and then stitched front and back. I wanted it to look rough and ready seeing as it was a book of the boys so i didnt turn the edges or hem them, just left them frayed. I added 3 eyelets per page and then slotted in a few paper pages as well. Truely mixed media.
