Precious- for Tanja!

This is a special custom made order for the most lovely lady!
Thank you so much Tanja for allowing me free rein on this :)
i must admit it was a huge challenge as these pages are large to fill and to keep interesting :)
there's always a fine balance between art but also practiblity.
Most of the time was spent distressing and stamping the papers so they retained little of their original look and were altered to suit our theme- vintage and flowers .
The flowers i have added have been stamped on and rub ons also added then i have put a little pearlescent sheen over the top.
Loads of beautiful quotes to suit any photo's
 I cant wait for your comments
xxxx Leonie

front cover has a K & company 3d butterfly embellishment. I have distressed the title "precious"

lots of fold out flaps with room for BIG photo's :)
I added the eiffel tower as a little tribute to the last albums i did for Tanja
The second photo matt hides two massive luggage style tags- stamped and decorated 2 sides these tags can easily fit a cut down photo

I have stitched some lace to this page- i love the autumny feel- once again hidden tag pocket plus a pocket with a fold out flap

fold out flap and tag pocket

another flap hiding something special

extra EXTRA fold out inside

note how i have stamped the lady image to where i thought photos could go

I made a clear pocket as i couldnt bear to cover the paper

Creative space 2012

Every artist needs a creative space and this is my studio;)
I thought I'd share a little magic of what happens behind the scenes.
Wood black butt floorboards
Storage racks for a multitude of the latest as well as old treasured papers and cardstock.
Piles and piles of acrylic stamps ( soon to be stored in new binders)
As well as all the precious goodies that go with them, ribbons flowers and the back wall has a pile of stuff for my lucky dips.
The singer sewing machine is a treasured gift handed down to me from my mum. It was her 21st birthday gift from her parents and I'm so thrilled to have it.
Bit messy but who can create in a sterile environment?
Of course there is the ever present cup of green tea - this brew is buddahs tears. Hand rolled jasmine and green tea balls.
I believe that in order to create beautiful things you must create a sacred space.
Wishing you all joy and a wonderful day
I am off to work on a custom-made order for a beautiful lady in Italy!
