Graphic 45 Steampunk mini for Rhonda

Ok heres ANOTHER mini & I made this mini using Graphic 45 Steampunk Debutante papers! My sister in law Sarah asked me to make an album for her boyfriends sister, Rhonda, for her birthday :)

I have to say I love the graphic 45 papers for making minis I find them so nice to work with & I had lots of fun making this album!

Let me know what you think,

 So heres the cover & I titled the book timeless using grungeboard letters painted with crackle distress paint, I also used a lovely prima flower & a Tim Holtz timepiece metal embellishment
 I didnt put any hands on the clock just to reflect the timeless theme
 Forevermore muse token & a gear piece from Tim Holtz-I love Tim Holtz products too, I think I use something of Tims on every project :)
 The first page is simple with a material journalling spot & room for a big photo
 This page has two photo/journalling mats & Tim Holtz metal embelllies again
 Under the mats is the lovely print from the paper pad-so hard to cover the beautiful arwork on these graphic 45 papers-thats why making mats is great
 Again a pull out mat & a little bag I had that I popped a few tags from the collection into-this went really well with the papers & I loved how it turned out

 I LOVED making this page-using the corset print paper I had to make a corset page with a pull out! I made the corset with eyelets & ribbon & I added lace to the matching knickers

 Three tags
 Again behing the tags you see the lovely print of the lady with the gears hair-such funky prints

 Room for another big photo here on this butterfly print page
 With of course a Tim Holtz pin
 Another steampunk debutante with a pull out behind her
 I matted this ladies picture onto this page & the other little lady tag has journalling space on the back
 Last page with two tags
 With the tags removed you can see the vintage corset ads which can be read, I added black bling here too as you can see along one of the branches.
 Back cover
 Then I got this Papermania alterable box which I painted & inked to match the album-it has a cool acetate window where you can see my covergirl nicely through!
 I stamped it also with a Tim Holtz stamp from the mini muse collection & black archival ink. My mini fits perfectly inside, I loved this project & I hope you like it too!
