Black and white wedding

21 Nov

The colour theme of this wedding was black and white. I found out that the bride’s favourite colour is green so we decided to add green accents to the wedding album set. On each end of the large album’s spine, I hand-stitched headbands using green and black thread. The green thread matched the ribbon perfectly and added another touch of colour to the album.

The smaller album is a variation of a Japanese stitch. I used a wide green ribbon which gives a luxurious feel to the album.

Retirement album

8 Dec

Here’s an album I made as a retirement present. I was given a selection of photos that I could use for the cover – the only instructions were to do something a little different than just putting a plain photo on the cover.

I photographed the photos on a wooden background – something that added a little bit of texture but wasn’t too distracting at the same time.

This album is an accordion album which means that it has no spine and is made using a series of folds. This album can be displayed standing on a mantelpiece or used as a traditional album.
