Project - what she found *mini album*

Addie Blue is our finder of small things, appreciator of detail. I wanted to scrapbook the collection of found items she was keeping in a bare spot in my parents' hedge, but wasn't sure exactly how I wanted to document these photos and this part of her that I enjoy so much.
I decided to make a layered, textured, shabby, vintage-inspired journal. I wanted it to feel like an old field journal that a botanist might have carried around while doing field work. Something that was well-worn and showed signs of use and appreciation. Something that might have been used out in the rain, dropped a few times, or stained with some ink that had been overturned on an old lab bench years ago.
The outside cover is the spine and front and back covers torn off an old book. Most of the innards, including the binder rings, are from Jenni Bowlin Studio hodge podge mini book kits. I used bits and pieces from three different JBS hodge podge book kits in this mini album, and added in extra pages from JBS patterned paper, a vintage flash card, a vintage photo mat, old book pages, some ephemera, etc
