Incredible work from Alberto! Next, we have a great French Country Altered Art Folio Album from Clare Charvill. Here is what Clare had to say about this project: "As I worked with these papers putting this album together the colours reminded me of a holiday we had in the real french countryside a couple of years ago when we stayed in a converted cottage, part of a three cottage hamlet with nothing around us but green fields, blue sky, a little brook and a farm which of course had a cockerel just like the one in the collection, who thought it was great to wake every one up at the crack of dawn!! "
She even provided us a video tour!
"In memory of that cockerel I featured the one from the collection on the cover of my album along with some of the other elements from the papers, a key hole and a few charms.
I carried a complimentary colour scheme through each of the page sets using the new patterns and solids 6 x 6 papers. Love them!
I love how this page set folds out. The sun flowers really stand out of the page against the greens, creams and blacks.
The new pockets and tags make lovely co ordinated accents on the pages.
I hope you have as much fun being creative with these gorgeous papers as I did."- Clare Charvill
