Today I’m sharing my latest project for The Crafty Scrapper – a mini book featuring the new Authentique Harvest collection as well as papers from the Photoplay Autumn Day collection.I started with some mini manila folders from 7 Gypsies, which I painted and inked until they were the perfect coppery-bronze color.

I layered patterned papers to create backgrounds that highlight the gorgeous vintage images from the Authentique collection.

I tucked in a tag between pages, adding some silk fall leaves.

Hand-dyed seam binding acts as a closure for the mini book.
