Two things I made at the end of last year. Above is a photo album I made for my sister. The covers are collaged papers [purchased papers - I was in a hurry] with torn edges and distressed with walnut stain, then a couple of coats of acrylic wax. I used a Zutter binder to make the book and I filled the album with vintage family photos. The front cover has a rectangle cut out to show the first photo of my parents with my sister when she was a baby. A vellum page protects the photo.
Below is a box I covered with torn pages of a vintage sewing book. I painted it with a couple of coats of acrylic wax to protect it. It was filled with sewing bits & bobs, lace, trinkets etc
