still acrylic album

stand still & dream



acrylic is so fun to work with since you kind of get double duty out of all of your supplies... especially all of those double sided papers that you hate covering up one side of. i was inspired to do this album by the website one little word, that had featured the word STILL awhile back.


to keep the album closed, i cut a strip from a hambly transparency and sewed a large snap onto the transparency strip. i had to punch a little hole for the snap to fit through, and two holes on the ends to attach the strip to the rings of the album.

the overhead view and a few of the inner pages

the back cover of the album with still stamped with stazon and technique tuesday stamps over a hambly rub-on. and of course a little bit of glitz frosting to liven things up.
i added all of the text to the photos in photoshop. i kept the the basic typography the same on every picture. if you add text layers to a photo, you can still print the photos at any developer. Simply flatten the image, and save the file as a jpg.


and the rest of the album...
