Enchanted Mixed Media Album

Hello everyone!

I've finished the mini album that hides in the Enchanted Castle (see the post dated 4/27/2016) – and here it is, the Enchanted Mixed Media Album.

I wanted to do something a little different with this book, so I decided to switch up the content and also use a binding technique I hadn't used for a while.  So I added lots of pages and inserts with watercolor paper and used the super flexible binding method called sewing on tapes.  The book features the same paper as the Enchanted Castle – Graphic 45's "Enchanted Forest".

Enchanted Castle

The Enchanted Castle is a three dimensional paper project made entirely out of chipboard.  It sits on a 12” x 12” base and the height of the tallest tower is 15”.  It includes a hidden compartment that holds a coordinating mixed media mini album.

The Castle features Graphic 45's Enchanted Forest Paper Collection.  From the first time I saw this collection with the princesses and princes and fairies I knew I wanted to design a castle around the paper, and I wanted the castle to have lots of towers.  If you count the turrets, the project has thirteen towers so I think I met that goal!
