Back to School Student's Sketchbook

I have been amazed and greatly inspired by fabric-based album, especially combined with papers... One of my fellow Graphic 45 teammies, Nadya makes gorgeous fabric-paper albums... Inspired by her, I decided to attempted one using ABC Primer, one of the deluxe collections and the latest mixed media album for today's feature on Graphic 45 blog post...

I wished I had bought a couple of ABC Primer fabric previously when I saw them on sale at Spotlight... It didn't occurred to me that Graphic 45 will be re-releasing this collection that fast and I was like "Oh damn, I should have bought it!!!" So... it happened that I have scraps of polka dots fabric left after making a blouse, and I decided to use it for this album... As it's pure white dots on black background, it didn't look vintage enough to go with the paper collection... Without a second thought, I tea-dyed the fabric and TaaDaaa, I've a vintage polka dots fabric!!!

Though the overall appearance of this album is not as pretty as Nadya's, I was having so much fun doing this up especially with those scrabble tiles... These tiles just goes so well with the paper collection...
