finished album
Beautiful purple and pearl custom made album
I am so pleased with the final result- especially as it uses my favourite colors!!
I’ve kept it all really simple with the dark purple/plum/violet purple colour being the focal point.
I’ve layered and layered tones of the papers and gone mad using the most beautiful ‘moonstone’ cream/ pearl (with a purple tinge in the light) as well as the shimmer paper I designed for STAMP IT RUBBERSTAMPS a few years ago. Very luxurious and really luscious
The photo matts are all embossed by hand and I have attached a ribbon/braid over the top so that the photos can slide underneath- a real feature.
I have embossed heaps of panels and added many extra features.
See the many many photo’s for details!!!
Looking forward to your comments
Cheers Leonie J

how lovely is this? I'm sure the customer wont mind me sharing his comments!

"Absolutely stunning, thank you very very much. You have captured the essesnce of my wife's taste from just a few photographs. I am very certain that she will love and cherish this as much for the look of it as the sentiment behind it.

I knew the very second I stumbled on your ebay page that I had found the artist to make my vision a reality. You have definately excelled in this creation."
