Shabby Chic mini album......A Trip down memory lane

Morning peeps hope all is well and that the sun is finally shining after all the rain that some parts of the country got last week, hopefully we will get a few days of sun now as it hasn't been the best of summers so far. Last Sunday I went to a workshop with the the talented Tracy Payne, I have admired her shabby chic work for ages and finally got to go to her home and make this lovely mdf mini album, well I started it and finished it off last week. there is so much hidden detail in it and lots of Gesso that it took a lot longer than I thought it would.......I wanted to do an album featuring the life of my Mum so the front starts off with a photo of when she was a little girl.

Front cover includes stencilling and colour sprays

Heart is stamped onto acetate and stuck over stencilling with paste, which was then spritzed with a pink glimmer mist. The photo corners are frantage with a pale pink and white.

The frame is made from a mould

My Mum and Dad were professional Ballroom dancers,
unfortunately I never learnt to dance, much to my regret.

Frantage and metal embellishments on this page
as well as frantage photo corners again which are Doobadoo laser cut embellishments. 

The photos on this page show my Mum as little girls with her Mum and Dad and Brother and Sister but the photo on the right show us all as children, I'm the tallest standing and my baby twin Brother and Sister are in the pram.

Thanks for taking a peek
