Vintage Hanging Album by Lynne

Hello crafters! I love working with vintage photos and was blessed to receive a bunch of them from one of my cousins a while back; many of these photos are about 100 years old! I've made scrapbook layouts with several of the images, and recently decided to make a small heritage album for the cousin who passed the photos on to me to show my appreciation:

I used the Wood Hanging Stand and chose the Baroque pages (there are three different page shapes to choose from, or you can get 2 of each shape).

The first thing I did was cover all the pages with patterned paper; I used the aptly named "Heritage" collection from BoBunny. The warm rich colours go so well with my sepia photos! After tracing the shapes and applying the paper, I sanded the edges gently then inked them with Burnt Sienna ink:

I incorporated some chipboard frames and embellishments into some of my pages as well; this wagon wheel was painted brown, then heat embossed with Pebbled Copper embossing powder.

The dress form was just rubbed with Prima Metallique Wax in Aged Brass and inked on the edges with Ranger Antique Linen distress ink. I fussy cut  flowers from my paper and added those as well.

The key and plate I left "naked", but just rubbed a little of the Aged Brass wax here and there on the surfaces.

This frame was painted a dusty rose colour, then stamped with this Prima stamp and Versamark ink, then heat embossed in Chablis.

This frame was dry embossed, then painted burgundy. I then lightly brushed gold paint over it, and finally rubbed some of the Aged Brass wax here and there.

The music shapes wee painted a deep red then heat embossed with a coat of UTEE for an enamel-like glossy finish:

The horse and carriage piece was painted a rusty brown, then heat embossed with Ranger Distress embossing powder in Vintage Photo. Afterwards, I rubbed-GUESS WHAT??-yes,you guessed it- Aged Brass Wax here and there over the surface (I'm nothing if not consistent!)

There are six pages included with the standing frame; on this post I've included the pages that featured additional Gypsy Soul chipboard. I plan to add small labels to each page with the names of the subjects and approximate dates before giving the album to my cousin (just haven't gotten them looked up and printed yet!).If you'd like to see the remaining pages in the album, please visit my blog at:

Thanks so much for stopping by;this project took me a while to finish but I really enjoyed putting it together. The frame is sturdy and just fits together with dowels, and the large rings to mount the album are included. Have a terrifically creative week!
