Voyager Album

Hi everyone, I am so glad it is Sunday. I have had such a busy week and cannot believe Sunday is nearly over. I have a few things to show this week, the first is the mini album I have mentioned in earlier posts. This is one I made for a very good friend and her husband. I have worked with Robyn for the last 14 years and she finished up on Friday, to take a well earned holiday on her beautiful big boat.

The boat was the inspiration for this album, I have been planning it for so long, but left it to the last minute (as usual) to put it together. I wanted it to look old, like an old ships log, but I got a bit carried away. Trying to get it finished this week meant a few nights with very little sleep, but it was so worth it. Going to miss you so much my friend.

As I was transferring the photos to my computer I decided to call this album Voyager. It is an envelope mini although it is rather large at 61/2 inches x 9 inches. I used manilla A4 envelopes (thanks sis) and cut them in half. The spine is from the fabulous Laura Denison, it is her "stack the deck" spine easy and strong. The covers are just chipboard covered in Kaisercraft cardstock which I sanded, I covered the spine with sticky back canvas and inked it with Tim Holtz(who else) walnut stain distress ink.

I made tags to go inside the open ends of the envelope pages and added mats and journal spots.
Except for one tag where, as I said I got carried away.

Dory is the good luck charm on the boat, so even though it didn't fit with the album theme, I knew it needed to be in there.

Sorry for the long post. If you stayed to the end, Thanks.
