Pastel Album

Good morning ...
I hope you are having a good week so far ...

Todays challenge at Papercraft Star has been set by Anitra ... Have you been following her brilliant monthly tutorials on the blog? I'm really enjoying them
This week Anitra is asking us to use Pastels ....

Isn't this pretty!

My post contains quite a few photos as I decided to make a little album using papers from Tilda's card background pad which I picked up at Hobbycraft ... These are really ready folded cards but I like to just use them as papers and cut them up

I used thick acetate from a package box to cover the front and back so there is some reflection on this photo ... the next photos are taken with the cover off so you can see clearer

The stamps on the front came free with 'Creative Stamping' magazine ... there are lots in the set and they are really sweet ... As you can see I paper pieced the little hut in soft pastel patterned paper from the Tilda pad and added it to another of the papers ... together with some plain and some hand painted shells, pearls and trims and a strip of washi tape

A closer shot shows some liquid pearls too

The pages inside were stamped with 2 different stamps by Inkylicious before I adhered some of my favourite photos from Majorca ... here's a peek

This last page is paper from the World Traveller stack by DCWV
Because I used ring binders I can just keep adding more pages to this little album

I really had fun with this and love the pastel shades on the front ... Don't forget to visit the blog for more inspiration and link up your Pastel creations

Till soon
