My first mini album - words מיני אלבום מילה

Edit: I've won #1 spot at Prairie Fairy Fridays

This is my first mini album ever (but surely not the last one... :) I like it!). It was for someone very dear to me, who starts a new business of baking special cakes (the words of the album means in hebrew: pastry, baked food). For the basis of each page I used cereal box, that I cut in the letters' shape, according to a template I've made for myself. Each page was distressed with distress ink (tea dye), and was decorated with different embellishments. I made faux stitching to all the pages, in different patterns.

זה מיני אלבום ראשון שהכנתי (וסביר להניח שלא האחרון... מאד מוצא חן בעיני :)). הכנתי אותו למישהי יקרה לי, שהתחילה עסק חדש של אפיית עוגות מיוחדות. כבסיס לכל הדפים באלבום השתמשתי באריזות ישנות של דגני בוקר, אותן חתכתי בצורת האותיות על פי תבנית שהכנתי לי מראש. את כל הדפים יישנתי עם דיו דיסטרס, הדבקתי דפים מדוגמים (שאריות) והוספתי כל מיני קישוטים. בכל הדפים שירבטתי תיפורים, בדוגמאות שונות.

מראה מבחוץ של כל דפי האלבום:
 This is a look from the outside, all the pages:

הדף הראשון בצד השני:  The 1st page, on the other side 

הדף השני, צד ראשון: The 2nd page, side 1

הדף השני, צד נוסף: The 2nd page, the other side
הדף השלישי, צד ראשון: The 3rd page, side 1
הדף השלישי, הצד השני: The 3rd page, the other side
הדף הרביעי, צד ראשון: The 4th page, side 1
הדף הרביעי, צד שני: The 4th page, the other side
הדף החמישי, האחרון, צד ראשון: The 5th page, the last one,  side 1
הכריכה האחורית, עם שאריות של כמעט כל הדפים בהם השתמשתי באלבום: The back cover, with scraps of almost all the dp I used on this ablum
The rose here is a mask with glimmer mist
ההחתמה של הורד נעשתה בשיטת המסיכה, עם גלימר מיסט

This flower was made out of little scraps, otherwise thrown away, according to this tutorial
את הפרח הזה הכנתי משאריות קטנות של ניירות מדוגמים, לפי ההדרכה הזאת. זו דרך נהדרת להשתמש בכל אותן שאריות קטנטנות שבכל מצב אחר פשוט נזרקות לפח.
