I was asked on Monday to make a Wedding Album
for Saturday.... no pressure here
Not knowing the wedding colors I decided to go with Black and White.
Simple but Elegant.
Started with a The Everlasting Love paper pad some 3-D Embellishments, 10 sheets
of 8x8" chipboard (medium weight), 3 rings, 1 roll 1/2" Score tape, a wooden frame,
Black and White flowers and black 12x12" card stock.
This was one of those rare times when everything needed I already had
in my stash, leftovers from previous projects.
I covered the chipboard with the coordinating paper, punched holes for the rings
used as the binding, I then cut 4 1/2" x 6 1/2 photo mats out of black and white
card stock along with 3" x 4" mats I double matted
most of the frames by decreasing the size of the mat by 1/4".
The photo mats were added to the pages, depending how I was embellishing.
I did end up cutting some of the mats to a smaller 3x3" size to fill in and embellishment.
and one mat cut was 6x6".
The cover was done using a wooded frame painted black, the picture in the center
I got off the Internet and resized to fit the frame, glued picture to frame and both to
the album. I then glued the 2 black and 1 white flower to the album over the black
flowers that were printed on the paper leaving the black leaves and ribbon showing
(there's a picture above of what the black flower looked like).
I am really pleased with the outcome, Simple but Elegant.
