One of the greatest joys of being an artist and paper crafter is being able to share the joy of it all with others. With my recent project, I was able to do that ... big time. I completed an entire album, too! Let's get started taking a look at the first few pages and then I'll explain the story behind the album.
I chose to keep my album cover simple, with a nice ribbon around the cover. Here's the cover page.
I left the next page blank, so a personal note could be added for the recipient to read and enjoy. This left the first actual album page being a single page.
Now, we start with the full page spreads.
Each page has a few, minimal embellishments and a Scripture selection.
Now, I'll explain the purpose of this album. It is one I made after signing up for a series of uplifting videos from Ronda Wade's series: Creating for Christ. I received 21 days of Scripture selections to study, along with a video talking about it. The album goes along with the series. When I shared with my daughter that I was doing this and really enjoying it all, she asked if I'd make a second album for a friend of hers who really needed some uplifting right now. I immediately said that, when I was finished making it, she could have mine. I got the joy of making it, while growing spiritually, and then the added joy of sharing it with another. That's special to me. I won't share her personal story, but I feel blessed that I can help someone who needs a little joy in her life right now. Come back to see Part 2 with some more of my album pages.
