FAMILY Distressed Paper-Bag Album

The above album is made from paper bags and very distressed. History of this album: last year, for a retreat, I made too many base albums. We used what we needed and I saved the rest. In the back of my mind I wondered what to do with the leftovers. I answered my own question by creating the above album.
On the cover of the album I made holes and criss-crossed jute and tied it on the bottom. Ripped the first two pages and then distressed it with ink. As you look at the photos, you will see ripped paper, inked and the use of ribbon that I could rip also, giving it the used look. Love making this album. Take a look at each photo and enjoy. I will be teaching how to make this album at retreat this November. 4 days of pure heaven.
Remember try something new today and happy scrappin'.
