Transparent Mini Album - Flowers And Butterflies

This mini album was created out of a big transparent page (12x12) cut into 4 smaller pieces.
I've easily cut it with a knife, with scissors and with Sizzix dies.
Because it is transparent, I had to pay attention to what's showing on the other side of each page. I think it's challenging, don't you?
Yet I could use so many techniques, inks and 3D items, and that turned it into a fun project to play with.
It is very colorful and cheerful, and there's still some room left to add photos.
It came out rather chubby because of all the embellishments I put in - and I like it this way.
I hope the photos show its transparency and the way each page seems from both sides, through the layers.
There are quite a few of them, so sit back and enjoy…
You can enlarge each photo by clicking on it.

  1. איזה יופי אני מאד אוהבת אלבומים אקריליים ופרחים ופרפרים תמיד מוסיפים המון.

  2. איזה רעיון נפלא ומקורי! הפרחים והפרפרים נהדרים!מעניין איך זה יראה עם התמונות בפנים.

  3. Very very pretty. It certainly looks like a lot of work, and a huge challenge for placement of all the bling. Great job :)

  4. אלבום מאוד מיוחד
    באמת מאתגר עם כל הפריטים
    יש בו המון עליזות יפה וצבעונית
