“Hello Graphic 45 fans!

Today I come to you with the next mini album. I used ivory Mixed Media Box. I don’t have enough perseverance to make large albums for dozens of photos, and these boxes and cards are perfect for me. Small box to close a beautiful memory inside. Today I reached for photos of my friend's daughter. And when I think about little girls, the Fairie Dust collection appears right in front of my eyes. It is ideal for this purpose. Beautiful, cheerful colors, beautiful patterns and of course lots of fairies.




I covered the box with paper, decorated with a lot of flowers and of course a fairy. An interesting element is a colorful window. I made them from thick foil (you can use, for example, stamps packaging), which I colored with alcohol inks. It gave a beautiful, watercolor effect.





In this box I closed four cards, their main element is the photo. I also added flowers, a piece of string. I wanted to show you how easy, but effective, to make such cards. You don’t need many embellishments or special skills to decorate your photos wonderfully. I have a short movie for you.

And if you would like to made a box with me, I invite you to a longer video. I hope that I inspired you to create your own albums. If you don’t have perseverance for a big projects, just like me, start with such small ones. Good luck!" ~Kasia
