Clearly Wisteria!

This is a clear album that I have made using the clear album set on my website. I used two sets. I used alcohol ink in purple and blue. My picture is not showing the richness of color that the inks created. I used the tiny pearls with pearl paint by Ranger. I added purple stickles to the leaves of the flowers. Rub ons were used to create the front title. It reads, " A friend is a second self" as well as, " Friends are born not made" 
Wisteria paper was used on the inside of the album. This is GORGEOUS paper! I used purple stickles to trim around the pages. 
Spellbinders scallop circle die was used to create the two photo mats. 
This picture makes it hard to see the Wisteria paper that ends the book. I bound this album with thick wired ribbon. The silk flowers are from the floral department and can be plucked out of a hydrangea bunch. The beauty of a clear album is that you can see through all the layers and the album always has dimension as you turn the pages. I really had fun with this project (: 
Let me know what you think!!!!!
