Hello everyone! I’m still here although I have temporarily gone off the old creative radar lately - apologies! - but I’ve been busy with hols/school/planning a new kitchen, so, I’ve not been at the craft table doing much. That was until I dug out this acrylic album. It was a cheapo purchase from Hobbycraft - I think it was something mad like £1.99 from a clearance shelf - how could I resist such a bargain! Then it lay under a pile of other stash in a drawer for a few months... But then I got a bee in my bonnet about doing something a bit different and this little acrylic album called to me from it’s lonely drawer and told me it was time to shake off the cobwebs and step up to the challenge! I hope you enjoy the finished result. It was really fun to do and although advice says that these types of albums should be worked on from the back to the front to make sure you don’t get too much glue and backs of papers visible, as usual, I just ignored this. I can’t help it - I’ve always hated being told what to do. It seems to have worked ok and I don’t like my stuff to look too planned out anyway - I prefer the organic approach! Haha! As usual it has been a great way to use up some not so good photos. I love the touchy/feely tactile-ness when I pick it up, especially the recycled buttons on the front cover.
Thanks for staying tuned!
