Handmade memory album by mixed media artist Laure Janus.

This lovely little album started out as simple brown paper lunch bags but oh baby, it’s turned into the perfect place to keep and record treasured memories from a special moment in time.

Each piece of art that I create has its own unique energy, and “LOVELY” is just that - a lovely album for a lovely person or occasion. Rich in color and texture, it would make a wonderful birthday gift, anniversary present, or a welcome surprise for someone who needs a boost. It’s an encouraging treat for the eyes and the spirit, bursting at the seams with comfort and love.

Supportive snippets of text include “dream with me”, “be true to yourself”, and “love has no bounds.”

Heavy patterned paper serves to decorate and strengthen the pages, making for a vibrant and lasting piece of art. The colors are vivid and alive and provide a treat for the senses. Plenty of room on the pages to add your own thoughts and wishes.

Vintage photos, ephemera, ribbons, fabric, flowers, and fun are added to tell a story or serve as a journal prompt.

Discover the many nooks and crannies just waiting to hold your secret thoughts and precious treasures. Altered tags both large and small are included for musings and more.

The front of the album features a vintage button accent trimmed with Swarovski crystal, glass beads, and metal trinkets, while a stretchy lace ribbon serves as a wrap around strap to keep the contents safe and secure. This lovely album offers rich colors and patterns in the hues of gold, cream, brown, and black, and features glitter (the kind that stay on the page!) and lace...an artistic and inviting presentation!

The spine is sewn with a 5 hole pamphlet stitch, and the pages are inked to add depth and interest.

12 pages total with 3 large pockets and 3 smaller pockets, complete with numerous tags.

Album measures 5” x 5.5” closed; 5” x 11” open.

You will find plenty of uses for this lovely creation:
* a spectacular gift for any occasion, alone or with a gift card, $$$, photo, special memory...
* organize receipts, coupons, photos, cherished ephemera...
* record daily life, dreams, art, to-do lists...
* a beautiful conversation starter
* a treasured objet d’art

What are you waiting for? “LOVELY” is a OOAK (one of a kind) work of art that is the perfect gift for that special someone...perhaps you?
