The Perfect Place for Photos

A hand bound photo album always does the trick for me in showing off my favorite
photos in the perfect light.

This is just one example of what I have been making all week.
Each page has an attached piece of vellum to keep the photos from sticking to each other.
The album is covered with French hand painted marbled paper.


The spine is rounded and coverd with book cloth.
Still many more to assemble,,,back to work.
Wishing you all a fun week!

Cynnie...I would say it looks like the most expensive commercial version, but that might be an insult to your wonderful handwork!

#1 This is absolutely gorgeous! It sucks that we rarely print photos now a days, I always just let them stay digital, but having albums is so so soooo much better!

#2 I'm sorry I don't remember where that photo is from :oS which is really bad cause I allways try to write down links so I can link back to them. I'm pretty sure I got it off a blog that didn't have the original photographer's link on there though.
