Spring Butterfly Fairy Premade Album with Plaster Cover

I cut the butterfly shapes out of medium/heavy weight chipboard.  This cover is covered in plaster, painted pink, and sealed. Several of the flowers are handmade or put together from a variety of materials and flowers.

The Yellow Crystals are ... yellow crystal flowers :D it may not look like it from the photo.

The tule is attached to removable tags.  Most of the papers used are either Graphic 45 or Stampin'Up.

I've fallen in love with Steampunk stuff, even though this is more fairy-springish, I had to throw a clock in there.

Cover the bunnies with a photo.

There is transparency attached to the antiqued filigree that keeps all the tags snug.  Even though you can see them siding under the flowers and metal the bottoms are tightly in there.
Dangle beads seem to add that extra wow factor to everything.

The fairy in the upper right corner is under a 1/4 inch glass oval.  A photo can be fit under the edges of the filigree metal brackets on each corner, or maybe a matted theater ticket. The fiber around the edge gives that feathery feel.

There are 2 pages that have these clear frames that a memento or photo can be placed under for viewing.

I loved making this roughed-up postcard on a hinge, when you raise it you access a tag and a place to put journaling and/or a photo.

The back page it lined with lace that the postcard can slide under.
The interior pages are approximately 1.5 inches smaller than the covers.
