Magic Steam Punk album «Love Potion»


By Yulia Kuznetsova


"Hello, G45ers!

Today I'm going to show you an album I made for my friend. She has wonderful photos and I wanted to make a surprise for her birthday -  album with these beautiful photos. I mixed three collections of paper - Steampunk Debutante—Deluxe Collector's Edition, Steampunk Spells collection and Old Curiosity Shoppe—Deluxe Collector's Edition.






Steampunk "Love Potion" Album

The edges of the pages I processed Metal leaf glue and Metal flakes.

I like to use unusual materials for my albums. And today I'm going to show you how to make a magic album cover.

I hope I inspired you to create a project in the steampunk style. See you next month!” ~Yulia

Yulia - What type of glue did you use to hold the G45 metal parts on your project? After working so hard, I would hate for them to fall off. Thank you.

I would love to make one of these, but that means I would have to cut up the beautiful papers. I'd better get a second collection first.
