Justifying Paper Bought

Isn't this sweet? I thought so. I used scented card stock for the pages, just like the stab bound albums I did, only this one is half the size, it can fit 3R pictures. I had to make it to justify the reason why I bought the paper which I used for the cover. I just fell in love with the colour. The off white with the pale purple of the petals (I don't even know what flower it came from) And the muted olive green from the sprigs of... whatever the green stuff was. I just loved the paper. I not only bought one sheet, I bought four! *Sigh* I know, I know, no buying more stuff until I used up the stuff in the studio, I caved in. But I was very good while in Singapore two weeks ago, I didn't buy any art stuff at all! And they didn't have any bone folders!! Dammit.... Anyway...

The paper was quite translucent so I had to double up, used twice the amount for the cover for that size. A matching purply red satin ribbon to hold the whole it all together and roses at the end of the mini bow just to complete it.

The book went on sale at the BCL Festive Fayre, and was bought a few days later... yay! Paper bought, justified! ;-D

Oh, there is a workshop on how to make this type of book tentively scheduled on the 7th December. Spaces are very limited, email me if you're interested and I'll get back to you as soon as I work out the kinks.
