Cassie's Mini Album

Here is the finished album. I used proof photos from a sitting done in 1990, these are the perfect size for a mini book and I had just enough photos to complete this 10 page album.

The trick to working with acrylic is to use things that look okay from the front and back. Double sided paper is great, I used a lot of rain dots, plastic flowers, epoxy stickers and gems. For adhesive I used mini glue dots and tacky glue that dries clear.









Of course these pages don't photograph very well but you can get a closer look by clicking on the picture for a more detailed idea of how I did this.





This album was certainly not the easiest thing I've done, but I do like the result, so it was worth the trouble!
