G45 Nuts & Bolts Album

I made another of the “Nuts & Bolt” album as I call them, with my SIL Irene, but this time with Graphic 45 papers called Coutour. The last one I made was primarily stamping which you can see here and here but this one is very little stamping and more about the papers.

Who shows the last page first … well I had a play around with my graphics program again and liked the background, looks super cool eh!!! Loved the result of what I did here so played again.

I can hear you saying less of the playing and more of the showing Shirl!!!
OK here is the first page with some molding paste and ink through a stencil. Just to hi-light those super fussy cut pieces.

Each tag has a number, die cut from the movers and shapers magnetic set called Cargo, with a different embossing folder being used for each black page.

Fussy cut the tickets and also the prim and proper Miss Madam sitting in the chair.

Also mixed some of the papers from the French Country collection from Graphic 45.

    Your album is magnificent Shirl. The attention to detail on every page makes it so interesting. I have two to finish, so maybe you’ve inspired me to look at them in a different way. Enjoy your Day. Hugs Rita xxx

    Good Morning, Shirl! A marvelous artistic gift for anyone. Gosh! I really like the pretty happiness found in each layer – who would not enjoy receiving this and treasuring it as a keepsake? Your textures and mixture of design elements is so imaginative – I never think of using different media together like this – and yours always look stunning! hugs, de

    Absolutely glorious – the embossing adds such tactile interest to each page, and the papers look even more stylish against the bold black.
