Mary Ann has been talking about this for awhile and has just announced it. I've been curious. Now that it's been made public, I am very excited, because the concept is to make journals out of old photo albums ... the kind containing cabinet photos, tin types etc. (She suggests other options if you don't happen to have one of these)
The good news is, I just happen to have two of them with me. (Couldn't leave those behind either). I adore them and was going to make an altered book, however, this sounds like a whole lot of fun to re-purpose one of the albums at least. Here's what I have 'in stock'. Don't know which one I will use as yet.
|I love this old album. It's beautiful spine is in tact.|
|It contains both oval and square mats .. no photographs.|
|This one has a very ornate cover which I adore. Love the "D" in the middle. :o) The spine on this one is gone.|
|The inside is full of wonderful surprises. Great old cabinet photos and some smaller tin types at the back. One day, it will be fun to do something with all the old photographs as well.|
