Rare Oddities Album



Halloween is right around the corner and what better way to celebrate than with an album!  I created this Mixed Media Album using the Rare Oddities collection.  

The cover is adorned with layers of fussy cut images from the collection and to top off the design, I added a large, black feather to the upper corner of the cover.  The album is kept closed by a strand of grosgrain ribbon which I adhered just under the cover design.




I used chipboard tabs from the collection to cover the tabs of each pocket page.  I placed a black flower on the back of each of the tabs to add interest and a fun twist.


I used old photos of my daughter when she was a little one to adorn the pages of the album.



I kept the techniques simple as the intricate designs in this paper collection truly speak for themselves.  I altered all of the pocket pages that came with the album. 



Custom albums can be fun and easy to make.  You can make them as elaborate or simple as you like. Working with a coordinated paper collection like Rare Oddities can definitely make creating a custom album a joy!
