This is my ATC album for all of the WOYWW 5 anniversary swapped ATCs! It turned out so cool, if I do say so myself. Doing a little happy dance....
First off the finished album
If you've come from my WOYWW post today you saw the letters drying on my desk. That's what the lumps of black distress glitter were. :)
Onward.....I saved and tried to use everything that was sent with the ATCs. Notes, pics, poems, paper and assorted other goodies. Thank you all!
So I tore up some envelopes and some of the papers and collaged them on a used file folder, following Bleubeard and Elizabeth's recycling efforts.
Next up....the folder was cut in half and various sprays and powders added as well as some doodling to try and tie the collage together, asterisks and dashes similar to the paper in the lower left. (this is my first attempt at a collage.)
Kind of got carried away with the sprays so I turned the pieces over and glued down some scrunched up TH tissue paper (has the weight of wax paper) and then went to town with more sprays and paint splatters.
Made some faux leather pieces for an edging to re-enforce the edge that would be punched for the binding rings.
Here's the covers with the edging...
And here's the finished cover. Very happy with how the title pops.
Then a few of the inside. I used plastic cd storage sleeves(cut to album size) for the ATCs. Each pocket held two ATCs perfectly. With some selective trimming I was able to fit the cards and notes that came with some of the ATCs. I love that I can see the backs of the ATCs, no need to be pulling them out of a pocket!
Even cut the tp tube envelope (on left) in half and stapled it down as it was so gorgeous!
And done. I hope you've enjoyed browsing thru the steps of how my WOYWW 5 ATC album came to life.
Thanks for stopping by.
