Ballets Russes Mini Book
Warning you might need a cup of Tea - this is an image heavy and long post :)
Back in Feb. Miss 6 and I headed off to the Ballets Russes Exhibition at the National Gallery of Australia. I blogged about it at the time. With Elements from the Tarisota Parisian Glamour Collection I created this Mini Book to record the trip :)
The Eiffel Tower Charm was a great addition for this project

I used my Papertrey Ink Bookmark topper die to create interesting tabs on each of the pages.
I mainly relied on hand journaling and the photos I took that morning but also incorporated the flyer used in promotion which I cut up into portions and used both the images and text.
I also punched a hole in my admission ticket and added that in, a great way of recording the date we attended and time span of the actual exhibition. I would have also added the bus tickets had I kept them.

This album contains a secret little envelope with a story about how her mother unknowingly lead her to a somewhat 'phallic' art installation and then as She discretely tried to remove the child before the child realised what she was looking at, the Child's tutu poked out into laser light and set off an alarm at which point mother and child ran away both giggling nervously as they passed stern faced security guard heading toward the area.
Phew Narrow Escape!
It had been a long time between Mini books for me and I really enjoyed doing this one. Though I put them all away in a box when they are finished and look at them now and again part of me would like to have them accessible and another part wants to preserve them.
So Fellow Paper crafter's how do you store or display your Mini books?
