Fabric Collage Album-new design!
This album was created using fabrics and papers with stitchery and vintage image embellishments. The style is very much grunge/shabby chic,with layers of yummy fabrics,many of them uniquely hand dyed by me, and papers,raw and torn edges and uncut threads-do not assume from this design style that it is loosely stitched however, it is firmly finished,and whilst designed to fray,the edges have been finished to prevent too much unravelling-it is very much designed to be handled!
The front cover has a beautiful butterfly,hand-transferred onto calico fabric and poetry quote,also delicately hand transferred onto fabric,all collaged together with lace and button embellishments.There are ten pages inside, (not including the front cover and back cover) all embellished with lace,fabric,vintage photos and embroidery,filled with loads of scrummy handmade tags,made using papers,beads,fibres and all manner of stitch and fabrics,tucked into pockets,the sweetest miniature embroidered fabric booklet ( see photos-embroidered 'Play,Live,Love ) , -and still plenty of space ready for you to add all your precious mementos,letters and photos to create a personal album!
Album is one of my larger designs,and measures ROUGHLY 8" square and approx 1-2" thick.
I'm not sure that my photos do it justice!It is hard to convey the textural appeal of these lovely fabric collages-this has to be one of my personal favourites so far!
