Absolutely Alluring Albums with Graphic 45

Once Upon a Springtime mini-album Graphic 45 Nadya Lifa 8

Today, we have gorgeous albums to share with you! Nadya Lifa shares a perfect Once Upon a Springtime mini. Then, Yumi Muraeda shares an incredible Artisan Style sketchbook album with a great tutorial! Let's join in the fun.

First, Nadya absolutely wows with this fabric and paper masterpiece album using Once Upon a Springtime. What a revelation!

"This paper collection is a great inspiration! Only the fairies, flowers, magic! How cool these paper parts are combined with lace and ribbons! I made an album on kraft paper, pages in the album - a double. This page allows you to decorate 2 sides - inside and outside and offers space for additional photos. I used the Graphic 45 Precious Memories Ephemera Cards to be able to write a lot of journaling. As such, even a mini-album, it becomes very voluminous and spacious!" ~Nadya

Art Journals & Mixed Media with Graphic 45

Botanical-Tea-Art-Journal-Pages-Graphic-45-Annette-Green-6-of-6

Happy Wednesday, G45ers! We have gorgeous projects to share with you today. Annette Green shares an incredible art journal page. Solange Marques has a Home Sweet Home mixed media masterpiece to close out today's blog. These are amazing projects!

First, we have Annette's Botanical Tea art journal page. We loved her process video for this. It will definitely inspire you to try art journaling!

"I’ve been dabbling at art journaling for the past year; trying techniques, experimenting with color and texture, and learning from my mistakes. Like anything new, it’s taking practice and patience, but the important thing is that I am really enjoying it. Once I started to feel more comfortable, I began to envision using Graphic 45’s wonderful imagery from their papers in my pages. So I dove in and gave it a try with one of my all-time favorites, Botanical Tea. While I’m clearly no expert, I did create a YouTube video simply to share my humble process so that perhaps it might inspire you to give it a try as well." ~Annette
