Make an old style photo album look new

Hey ho everyone!

Today I prepared for you a tutorial using Dream Big collection. Here is what it will look like in the end:

 Let’s get started:

P1000599

You will need the new Dream Big collection, an old fashioned photo album (mine cost 50p), glue, scissors, Kaisercolour paints and Washi tape.

P1000600

We need to choose the paper to go on the front of our album – I’m going for Illusions.

P1000601

Now we need to glue the paper to the back page of our album (please try to remove the photo place inside so it’s easier for us to move about) and remember to bend the paper a bit so when it’s stuck together the book will still close properly.

P1000602

Cut another piece of the same paper and stick it on the front.

P1000603

We are going to use the extra paper on the sides to fold them inside and glue them or tape it.

P1000604

I used tape, as it was just easier ;d

P1000605

This is what our front should look like right now 😉

and both sides.

P1000608

Let’s leave the front at the moment and work on the inside, I have chosen the Hope paper to go inside.

P1000609

Simply glue it, make sure you have cut the little line for your pockets for photos.

P1000610

That’s my inside with the pockets for photos.

P1000612

We are going back to the front page now – this is the layout we are going to use (using Dream Big Collectables).

P1000613

But before we glue them with 3D foam pads, we are going to use Kaisercolour paint (you can choose a different colour if you like).

P1000614Add a small amount of the paint.

P1000615

and few drops of black paint.

P1000616

Time to finish our cover – let’s add some 3D foam pads to all of our pieces.

P1000618All nice and settled.

P1000619

And a closer look.

P1000617

Two last pieces inside and we are done!

Have a good day my friends!
