Purse and Album class.

On Saturday I went to another workshop and made this lovely purse and concertina album.
The kit is by 7 Gypsies and contained the purse and album and the different papers to cover it were seperate
We used about 6 or 7 co-ordinating papers plus 3 different colours of cardstock.
Here is a front and side view of the purse and it has a handle made from Grosgrain ribbon.

This is the front view of the concertina album------------

and the inside of the purse with the album -------------

and several views of the concertina pages in the album--we collaged the papers on all the pages and now I could add photos (if I had some time that is).

another view-------------

and another--------------

and the last one.

This was a great class but I had to finish most of the album at home in the comfort of my own "mess" as I hate being rushed to finish things in class sometimes .

Beautiful Doreen! This is just plain too pretty to use. You're lucky to have such fun classes close to you...there's absolutely nothing in this area.

Great work Doreen. I wish there where more workshops in my area!

That must have been a good class-love the results.

This is just terrific; I really like the paper you used. Are you going to use it for photos, or leave it as is, or stick somehitng else into the album?

These are lovely, Doreen, the colours and patterns of the papers really suit the finished pieces.

This looks amazing Doreen, just beautiful. Is it really papers and cardstock - it all looks so possible with fabrics ...... Val
