I designed this project the moment I purchased this beautiful paper collection from Graphic 45. The papers really spoke to me, most likely due to my Asian background, and simply because I fell in love with the graphics and colors in the paper design.
So, what took me so long to transfer what was in my head to what you see in the photos? Well, like many of us, I was working a very stressful job, and being a mom. However, I always came back to my dreams of the Bird Song paper knowing one day I would have the time to bring my project to reality.
Everything I used for this project came from the “supplies” 😊 I have been collecting over the years since I purchased the paper collection. I had all the beading supplies from my jewelry making stash, more on the jewelry making in future posts, the colors of beads I had matched perfectly for this project.
Highlights from this project include, using Crackle Accents from Ranger on the cover birds and tag elements in the album; vellum for the Shoji Screens on the box; and interior fussy cutting on the inside bottom of the pagoda box.
I plan to post a video, or two in the next few days to show more of the pagoda box and album.
