As I was saying in my last post, I was looking for inspiration yesterday and came across a link for a mini album which was made from one sheet of paper. What I finished up with was not one, but two mini albums!
I started with a sheet of A4 watercolour paper
[not the best quality paper, but it worked for what I wanted to use]
sprinkled Ken Oliver Color Burst (powder paint) in
'Violet' and 'Pthalo Green' and lightly spritzed with water.
Once that was dry, the paper was folded in half, and then half again. It was unfolded and then folded in half the other way. A cut was made along the fold line, between two other folds. Using a bone-scorer, everything was folded flat to create a three page mini album.

Different washi tapes in black & white were added to the edge of each page.

The cute little images are from Stampotique 'animal cube', a perfect size for this album.
[album 1 - third page]
The word stickers are from Carpe Diem - posh.
To make the word stickers stand out, I edged them with 'seedless preserves' Distress Marker.
[album 2 - first page]
Both albums have a piece of linen washi tape on the spine.

These cute little dogs are from Stampotique 'dog cube'.

To finish them off, I wrapped a length of yarn around twice and added a charm.
I think I may send these two little albums to a couple of good friends who sometimes struggle with life, but who are also a great support to others around them.
