Photos Live Here

A Photograph Stirs the Soul
One of the many photo albums I have been binding lately.
I covered the boards with some of my marbled paper.
I like the big black spots....some of which have quite a few
tiny white speckles.....oops, air pockets.


I made a decorative plate for the front cover.
You can see another photo album here.

This is my entry to Paint Party Friday and

oooh, wow! this is so cool. I love the marbled paper! how did you make that? I like the quote you ued, as well!

myartsdesire said...

Cynnie, I love, love, love marbled paper! Since you talked about air bubbles, I'm guessing you made the marbled paper yourself! You talented girl, you! I've got quite a few sheets of marbled paper I've purchased from Paper Mojo {an online source}. I linked to your earlier post on the other book you bound as well. Gorgeous books. I'm just now taking a book binding class and can tell that this something I will enjoy doing a lot. Thanks for an inspiring post! Xo, Sue
