"The joy that you give to others is the joy that comes back to you."
~John Greenleaf Whittier~
I cannot think of a better quote to describe what I was thinking about when I created the brand new Christmas album which I call "A Season of Joy".
"A Season of Joy" is a hand made journal filled with beautiful themes and vignettes, all tied together with gorgeous colors and aged metallic finishes.
I cannot tell you how many times someone has said to me that the photos don't really do the pages justice...and, in this project, they are soooo right! The satiny feel of the aged copper and brass, the dimension of the greenery and berries, the softness of the wallpaper, and the depth of the glitter just don't quite convey the same as they do in real life.
And, in real life, this book just exudes dimension, texture, and the feel of exquisite rustic elegance. If you love an old-fashioned, vintage take on the holiday season, you will absolutely love the pages in this artfully created album.
If you have regularly seen or ordered my creatologie kits, you know how much I adore harlequin and checkerboard patterning (a little bit like MacKenzie-Childs) and how often I incorporate them into my projects. This album is no exception...are you ready for it?
There are beautiful materials incorporated into each of the pages...actual aged metal, beautiful ribbons and trims, textured papers and wonderful fabrics all add to the dimension of the vignettes.
When I was designing the album, one of the things that I wanted to do was to create each page so that it could stand on its own...trying to give you extra value so you could take the design and the elements to create an individual card or tag...kind of like a bridesmaid's dress that's good for more that one wearing. Grin.
If your family members are looking for a gift idea for you, this would make a wonderful gift that will just keep on giving as you preserve your holiday photos and stories. And, if you have a special friend or family member who loves creating and art as much as you do, consider ordering one for them as well.
