Travel Album - Prima French Riviera Collection

Hello everyone!

I’m back with another project for the Annual Prima Design Team Call. #PrimaDTCall

For this project I used the 12x12 Collection Kit-French Riviera by Prima. Such a beautiful collection! I was so inspired by the designs and colors.
The idea of creating a vintage-style travel album immediately came to me.

A cute little booklet with large and small pockets, journaling cards and space for photos, to fill with memories from an exciting journey!

The cover measures 7” x 6” and the inserts measure 6.5” x 5.5”.

I decided to use a piece of faux book binding leather to create the cover. I directly glued a piece of paper from the collection, on the leather, because I wanted to have a flexible cover.

To decorate the cover, I used two pieces of polymer clay which I stamped with rubber stamps. I glued them with Art Basics Heavy Body Gel.

 I used Prima Cast Iron Vine stencil and Art Basics Gold Crackle paste to create some texture on the spine.
I tinted the Gold Crackle paste with Red Iron Oxide acrylic paint, to tone down the shine and give a more vintage look. 

When the paste was completely dry, I used a combination of Raw Umber and Paynes Grey acrylic paints to distress the whole cover.

Inside, I created a double pocket on the front side of the cover and an envelope on the back side.  

I created five inserts with pockets and flaps, by using 220gsm cardstock in cream and brown color. Then I decorated everything with papers and stickers from the French Riviera Collection. The designs are so beautiful and coordinate perfectly!

I punched holes which I reinforced with eyelets and used some black leather cord to bind the pages and cover together.

It is a quick and easy project to reproduce and can make a wonderful gift to a friend who might be taking an adventurous journey!
Hope you enjoy it!

Thank you for visiting my blog!

Until next time

Be Brave, Be who You want to Be!
