Yes, it really took me TEN years to complete this book for my husband. I literally have started it & taken it apart so many times I have lost count. Then I just kinda started collecting different pieces of paper and embellishments then re-started it again a couple of years ago. It has sat under my work table in a box staring at me...waiting for me to finally finish.
I wanted this book to be large, and chunky and full of area's for him to document this trip. This trip was an adventure with good friends, friends he has grown up with. This trip also took place on our 10 year wedding anniversary... But I was HAPPY for him to go.
There are so many fun things in this book, I love how it turned out and I'm glad it took me so long to collect, to work on and finish. It has burlap, paint, cardboard pieces, stamped images, rub-on's, lots of inking... This is a fold out page.
This is a very interactive book, pages are not all the same size, the pages on the right are actually three pages you are looking at.
I love how colorful it is and how well all of the different papers I collected over time all work together. The leather ties on the tags are so fun!!
I stamped and layered different stickers on the left page then added a transparency map over the top.
I love this mini clock page. and all of the layers and tags on the right page.
This is another one of the smaller pages. I love this frame over the photo.
Thank you to everyone who emailed me and requested to see the inside pages. I hope this met your expectations!! Oh, and yes, He LOVES his book! He now has one of his very own!
