Finished another custom album, this one was for a friend of mine and all the pictures were her husbands family.  These are outstanding pictures some of them from russia, and one was actually taken in china when they were fleeing russia.  These are my favorite two layout- they are not super elaborate layouts but you can't get too dimensional when making an album with 20 pages i need to make sure everything fits.  But it is not just the layouts i love it is the pictures i love how old they are and i especially love the one older picture by itself she looks so regal and grand
this one uses pink paislee resist paper that i inked with black soot and red barn distress ink matted on cream cardstock.  Used glitz paper misted with water and crunched into ruffes layered on top of one another
  and finished with brads.  The top left corner of the picture i wanted to represent the head dress from russian traditional dance.
My favorite, isn't this picture amazing!  For this layout i created a background pattern using pattern paper and cardstock, i repeat the pattern on the background paper but don't fill the whole sheet instead make it random- this makes it more eye catching and creates a picture clutter.  Finish with inking and sewing flowers and hinges.
