A sincere thank you

Thank you to Ali Edwards who put my 'documenting a week in life' project in one of the sample that she choosed worldwide. So overwhelming to be a part of that. And be sure to see all others samples, my friends, cause they all are gorgeous and inspiring.

Thank you to you all who had left a warm comments on the post. A sincere thank you that you spent time to say something that nice. And there are couples of questions that I need to answer here :

From Alison :
I found you through Ali Edwards. Love your album!! Did you make your own pages or was this an album you purchased?

Yes, Alison, I made my own pages from thick recycled papers because I want to add texture to the project. I put gesso all over the page (2 sides) and then put acrylic paint (burnt amber and burnt siena). Next, to make it acid free (because I am not sure if gesso will make them acid free or not) I spray them with Preserve It by Krylon, matt.(also 2 sides). I also made my own acrylic cover.

From Kathleen :
Love it! definitely stood out on Ali's blog. question about your acrylic album. . . did you put the grommets and binding tape on it yourself or did it come like that? If so, did you use the crop a dile? I never thought that would penetrate acrylic and now you have me wondering.

Thank you, Kathleen. I didn't use crop a dile. Just usual drill for hardware stuff. And put the grommets/eyelets right to the hole. You just have to macth the size of the drill and the grommets.


May you all have a nice day.

Congrats! You are amazing!!
