Up for 'Swap'....


:
A few days back I decided to sort out and clear my scrap items n papers. I’m running out of storage space and I find a lot of junks in my drawers!! Not to mention the amount of tiny bits of papers!! It’s too precious to be disposed off n I’m beginning to feel like a hoarder.
:

So as I was clearing out d stuff I came across d idea to paste all those papers together on a plain manila cardstock, just like how they did a patchwork. After doing so I thought it would be cool to make an album out of it.
:
:
The album size is 15 x 21cm, which leaves me ample of space for decoration n embellishment. Right now I’m crazy for anything vintage n decided to apply that theme on this album n challenge myself to use mostly self made flowers. I sanded the edges, distress it n voila..it looks as old n ‘ugly’ as I want it to be!!! Hahaha..
:

But…I love it so much!! Now that it’s ready I was thinking perhaps I shud put it up for a swap??? Any taker? I wud lurve to receive something similar but..it must be something ‘vintage’ with recycle n if possible some self made flowers. hahaha
