Vintage Chic

6 x 9 Cardboard Mini Album

3 Hour Class

This album is the perfect blend of shabby & chic.  Each cardboard page has been delicately edged in distressed inka-inka gold and dressed in a frayed swatch of soft muslin.  The album is layered in burlaps, canvas, silk flowers, frames, a time piece and my favourite part... a pair of soft feathery angel's wings.  The soft tone on tone colour palette gives this book a truly romantic feel.
