Fabric Collage Album

Currently available for sale HERE!

This album was created using fabrics and papers with stitchery,textile art techniques and vintage image embellishments. The style is very much grunge/shabby chic,with layers of yummy fabrics 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!
There are eight pages, not including the front and back covers,all embellished with lace and embroidery,filled with scrummy tags,all handmade using papers,beads,fibres and all manner of stitch and fabrics,tucked into a variety of hidden pockets. Also the sweetest miniature fabric booklet sits inside one of these pockets ( see photos) . Each little page of the booklet has been primed for your own additional notes,stamps and sketches ( graphite,stamping,colour pencil and permanent ink all work very well on these!).Plenty of sumptuous additions and still space ready for you to add all your precious mementos,letters and photos to create a personal album!
Album measure ROUGHLY 7" x 8" and rests closed at approx 2"" thick.
I'm not sure that my photos do it justice!It is hard to convey the textural appeal of these lovely fabrics and papers. A great deal of care and time was spent creating it and this lovely book is extremely tactile and appealing this would make a wonderful gift filled with mementos from a special occasion,or a fabulous memories journal or scrapbook - it's begging to be crammed full of extras and goodies and could inspire all types of new creativity!
