Prima Debutante shabby chic baroque mini album

Hi everyone :-)
Have made a new shabby chic mini album with the new beautiful Debutante paper collection from Prima. The album measure 10 1/5 x 7 1/4 and has 5 pages. The baroque shape I made my self and I have a tutorial on how to make it and also for the tags. Here is the link,


The cover frame I made as a see through with acetate.

 Covered the front frame with torn papers, cheese cloth. resin frame and embellished it with flowers and chipboard cut outs from the collection. Then went over with white paint and white Pan Pastel.

On the backside of the front cover I made a pocket on the right side to cover up the flowers on the front. More flowers and chipboard cut outs. Green paper from Bazzill.

On the 1. front page I made a pocket behind the frame and also on the left side.
