Album With Handmade Flowers and Window Casement

Today's project is a spiral album with handmade flowers draped around a window casement. The Tattered Walls kit from 123 Scrap With Me has just the right supplies to make a photo album or garden diary. The spiral binding, vine cutting die, and Lilac Nuvo Mousse are not from the original kit.

The album cover is made with two layers. The base layer is cut from Blue Fern Studios Tattered Walls:Apartment B. I punched the holes for the spiral in both layers before embellishing. The included TCW Stencil:Screen Print and Toasted Almond Nuvo Embellishment Paste were used to create a "curtain".
To complete the base layer I added the books from the 7gypsies Architextures. I also placed craft foam on the back of the window frame.
Together the give the illusion of looking into a well appointed sitting room.
Handmade flowers were next on my agenda. 
Step 1:Punch 10 circles from BFS Tattered Walls:Suite 204. Coat the rim with Lilac Nuvo Mousse.
Step 2:Fold the circles so that a dark rim from the underside shows.
Step 3:Fold the circle, accordion style, in thirds.
Step 4:Add glue between the tiers and clamp till dry.
Using a Tim Hotz die I cut a variety of vines from BFS Tattered Walls:The Library. I cut the Bumble Bee from BFS Tattered Walls:The Garage. I spread Toasted Almond Nuvo Mousse on the Bees wings.
I glued the vines to the left and upper edges of the Kaiser Craft Window Frame.
Finally, I adhered the bee to the upper left corner and the Moments tag from BFS Tattered Walls:Ephemera below it.
