Chicago: A Big City Adventure
My trip to Chicago in July 2012.
Front and back cover are 4×6 wood peices painted black and covered with photo/patterned paper. The inside of the album is made from cardstock photographs, sheets of patterned paper, envelopes, and other items. They are all bound together with two binding rings. The holes in each page were made with a Crop-a-dile hole punch.
Number of Pages:
A lot. 36 (NOT including front and back cover of binding). I like this style of book because you can add as many pages as you need. If I wanted to make this book bigger, I would just change the size of the binder rings.
This is my favorite project of all time. I told the story in chronological order, narrating my trip through photographs, with journaling directly on the photos.
This book is interactive, with hidden tabs, envelopes, and flip pages. They all help to tell the details of the story without being in your face about it.
All the pictures were taken with my iPhone 4s and printed as matte cardstock prints from Persnickety Prints.
Persnickety Prints cardstock photos, 4×6 wood covers from Zutter, Sharpie Fine Point Markers, Sakura Microperm Pens, Gold Airmail Washi, a lot of stash products, Amy Tangerine Baxter alphas, basically whatever was on my desk at the time.
