Photo Album with Mixed Media Marks by Farida

Hello everybody, Farida here

I have so many photographs that I wish to store properly. So I thought it's time to create a couple of albums for them.
First I wanted to have an album for all the pictures we took during skating/long-boarding. We used to go a lot some years ago, went to contests or even organised own contests in our city. So for this picture I wanted something really "cool". 

Inspired by sprayed street art I thought of using two bold colours and stamp just in black. For this album I went with a template by Jen of Eve's

At first you need to print out the template and cut out all the pieces.I grabbed my Mixed Media Marks Stamp Set and a black Ink to just stamp randomly around the edges. 

The pieces don't look that spectacular for now. So for the next step I glued the pages and little elements together so it became a mini album. 

Now you can see a transition, can't you? It's now looking really crowded on the pages. Because I want to put the photos in this album together with my daughter I cut some photo mats for now. 

Sometimes I also add some white paper as a place to journal. 
I think for the pictures I want to place into this album its a perfect design, although it looks so completely different from what I normally create. 
It is always good to step out from you comfort zone, isn't it? 

See you next time.
