Something Old, Something New

Today, LUCY brings us a touching mini heart album she made using old pictures of her mother from her youth. She tells us, "Don't be afraid to mix modern suplies with old pics, by doing this you bring back the colors of those happy days."

Extras ring for binding the album, Color Box chalk.

HOW TO
Start tearing the pages apart to make it a binding album with a ring. For the cover I used a vintage music sheet,and because I'm working with original photos on this project I wanted to cover this sheet with a coat of decopage glue for prevent the acid issue. Then cut the chatter box flowers to decorate your cover, add fluid chalk around the edges. Now cover all of the hearts with the bazzil papers for the background. With the distress tool tear all around the hearts. Then it's ready to decorate it according to your pics. Make the holes for the ring, put your pages together and finish it with laces and ribbons on the ring.
