Hong Kong Mini Album

I made this mini album of our recent Hong Kong trip, using Prima's Build-A-Book Clear Album. I so love the flower-shaped tabs of the album! Most of the materials used in this album are also from Prima, and I used patterned papers from their Tea and Silk Collection for an "oriental" look, the album being on Hong Kong after all.

I used Maya Road's sheer journaling cards for the journaling as I wanted a totally "clear" look to the album.

Here's a look at the individual pages.

For the back cover of the album, I used patterned paper over the clear cover, applied lace and ribbon to the right of the cover, and then cut out flower motives and glued them over the patterned paper and lace. I then applied Distressed Ink to the edges of the flowers and leaves for a more pronounced outline, and added Distress Stickles and gems to them for some sparkle. The journaling on the back cover is stamped and written on transparency and then glued onto the cover using Glossy Accents.

I really had fun creating this album!
