portrait of a lady

i redid the life portrait carousel album from a workshop i gave last month.  when the mock up was done, i figured to perfected the binding and thought i would also make one for myself.

 second picture is the revamped binding with internal spine to reinforce support

originally i was going to put my younger days pictures.  then, my mother's best friend of more than 50 years is asking me to help her collect old family pictures.  she's making a video memoir for my mother's birthday present in november.  as i was looking at those vintage pictures, i immediately decided to use some of them for this carousel album instead.

i use mostly webster's pages' life's portrait papers and use punches and shape scissors to build the album and embellishments. on the revamped version, i made some minor changes on the inside...just because.

the weather hasn't been kind and i couldn't get the right natural light for the pictures.  so i took the detail page shots with no justice still.
