Andrea's 21st paper bag album for Robyn

Vintage 21st pretty paper bag album.

I was so excited to get the brief for this custom made album, so I could use all my favourite papers and pretty embellishments :)

Its 6x6 inches with 3 bags folded in half to form 6 pageswith 2 sides- total 12 pages all together including the cover.
I have used metallic enchanted gold ink to distress the edgesof the papers, and have used gold pearl paint to highlight some flowers andbutterflies.
I wanted an album that didnt scream 21! But was a bit moresubtle and classic- so i put a gold key on the front tied to the ribbon where iused rub ons to say- “remember this moment”
I’ve used photo areas as a pocket with 1 huge tag in eachone for notes – or people could write on them?
There are also lots of little extra flaps and fold outs formore space.
I carried the purple papers theme to the purple flower onthe front and sprayed them with glimmer mist.
Hope its ok- if not I shall keep it!!!! LOL

The flowers have been glimmer misted with a gold pearl spray

Ribbons are attached so you can slip photos easily underneath
