Vintage Ephemera Inspired Altered Black Photo Album

Today I was feeling creative, and found an old, unused, empty photobook that was black and spiral bound. I went to my Office Word and typed out all sorts of sayngs, quotes, poems etc and printed the words on fancy, shabby chic, vintage looking paper. I cut the paper to fit the cover of the book and then distressed the edges using Cat's Eye Chestnut Roan ink. I took vintage lace and attached it to the middle area of the paper. I took a glue gun and finally attached the paper to the book. I added chipboard, a red poker chip, 2 feathers, vintage ephemera scanned to a smaller size, corner edges, a little paper bird I created, then added a few buttons. I thought I was done when I found a heart that used to be a piece of jewelry and attached a tassle to it. Ta-da, old things, made new.... I am truly proud of this project. Took me about an hour to complete.
