Hi Roadies! Julia here again with another project to share. I've always loved Maya Road mini albums but the latest ones in linen? Well, I love creating with them...the texture is awesome! Being a sewer long before I found paper crafting, I'm so excited to see fabric mini albums and embellishments.
Todays album is the Linen 4x6 Art Journaling Album and it's four pages of beautiful double thickness linen. It makes the perfect gift album, a wedding or baby album or as the name suggests, a little album for art journaling. My album is more along the art journaling line and is filled with quotes that I love and inspire me.
One thing I did with this album was to fold back the front cover about an inch or so and glue it down. This adds a little unique spot of interest and gives you a peek into the first page of the album.
As you can see, I've filled it with lots of lovely embellishments. I love how the unfinished edges add lots of texture and character to each album.
The cover is my favorite place to embellish and there are many layers of Maya Road flowers, trinkets and trims. To add a shabby chic look to the Antique Room Key, I've painted it with Gesso, making sure not to get the paint into the grooves.
Each page in the album contains a quote that is meaningful to me. They are written on White Mini Kraft Jotter Tags.
Tissue paper is easy to adhere to the linen album with a clear multi-medium type adhesive or glaze.
Fabric albums are so much fun to create with. I hope you'll be inspired to give one a try. Thanks for joining me today!
