Keeping it simple ...

Sometimes i just want to do something simple ... This little mini book is a redo ... yeah, i redid the entire thing ... my original idea was to do it all in white and black paint with splashes of red made with glimmer glam ... the only problem was the splashes of red on the white pages looked a little like .... ummm ... like i went all Dexter on the pages ...

so here is the redo, and simply done ... using white and black papers, and splashes of bright colours throughout the mini album ... and i really like the results as it allows the colours of the photos to really do the talking
 Okay, the cover isn't that simple, but it's not overly ornate either ...

 Not may embellishments in this mini ... i just used some leftover zipper from another project

 Sometimes nothing is needed but the photos and a wee bit of journalling

 a bit of ribbon, a metal tag and a tiny bit of bling

My two favourite photos and just a tiny bit of bling to draw attention to the two coloured finger nails.

 bakers twine, a bit of trim and a metal tag

 just a metal badge on this page ... there was no reason to divert attention or add to  the photos

More left over zipper and a painted wooden butterfly ... this is so much nicer than the Dexter book i had created earlier ...

There are more pages, but you get the idea ... and it was a nice way to use up a line of paper.

peace, love & paper ~ Jo
