This page was a straight 8x8 plastic page protector with a zigzag stitch along the edge that came with the canvas album.
This was a divided page that I used. It actually was a standard 8.5x11 page that I cut down to size. I bought it at the office supply store and was sold as a page protector for baseball cards. It all came together when I realized that I could use it like a mosiac and divide a picture along two different boxes.
As you can see, I mixed and matched pages all throughout the book. I used lots of different embellishments like stickers, ribbon, and even some old-fashioned Christmas paper cut-outs.
I used a few of these canvas pages where I gessoed the canvas pages with a heavy white. Then, I used a silvery glitter and finally tried to ahere it with a fixative. I have found that these pages drop glitter but oh well. Also, they were a total pain to get anything to stick on them so I finally resorted to stapling pictures onto them which worked but created a back side of the staples on the reverse side. I also used these really cool journaling blocks. They had two layers- a paper layer that you wrote on and then an shiny, transparent overlay.
This was near the end with both of the kids with their best buddy and cousin, Jonathan.
So, all in all I got the book done (although I think I have one empty backside of a page that needs something.) I figure that if I get nothing done for a year but the Christmas pictures, then I have accomplished something.
