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

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