Sneak peek of my upcoming Artisan Style photo album

Hi everyone :-)
It has been a while since I posted a project so I thought I would share what I am working on.
This is going to be a large photo album with a lot of space for photos and journaling inside hidden pockets and flaps.I am using the beautiful new Artisan Style from Graphic 45 for this album.
Have now binding the pages together and now for the fun decorating fun :-)

Had to wait so long for this beautiful Artisan Style paper collection from Graphic 45 so I started right away to fussy cut out the images. Here you see the flowers from Natural Beauty sheet and there are so many fun ways to put this beautiful flowers together :-)

Peek of the photo album in progress

This is going to be a large one and having so fun decorating it. Not finish yet as you can see:-)
Dies on this pictures are from Tattered lace, Tim Holtz and Cheery Lynn.

I often get questions on how long time it takes to fussy cut out images and this time I know because I sat a week cutting the images out because I wanted to have them fast finish so I could start creating my album.Usual I fussy cut in the evenings but i could not wait lol. Here are some of them :-)

So many beautiful flowers in this paper line :-)

When I cut out I try to have a tray near by so I don`t get paper all over the floor lol.
There was so many beautiful colors and I thought that it could be used for something so I filled the tray with some water and let it soak into the paper pieces.

Then I layered it out on a craft mat and used multi matte medium all over.
It became a new thick fun paper :-)
No idea what I am going to use it for lol but it came out pretty cool and can maybe be used for a roof or flower garden. 

It has been some beautiful sunny days here in Norway now so I have spent some days in my garden now but hope to get the album finish soon :-)
