Renaissance Photo album by morgenland Renaissance Photo album by morgenland
Another one photo album by me. This one is my gift for my beloved cousin's marriage. I work on it about one month, I think is the most difficult craft I made ever.
The design (front & back) is an old Renaissance border from a classic music book, sculpt with pyrographer and painted with acrylic colors. The letters border made of cooper as the 4 decorative objects on in it. Sides borders are made of leather made it looks old.
Inside covers made also of leather. The letters sculpt on a heavier leather. The book binding made by my as well. The red cartons painted separately with a tint of brown and a gold line at the edges.

I'd love to receive such a present! The amount of thought and energy you poured into it! Reminds me of the old, heavy, velvet covered photo albums with windows for the photos that were in fashion in the first half of the last century (e.g. these or this [Links will unfortunately expire but I couldn't find any better]). There is so much more love in them then in today's plastic photo albums or multimedia photo shows...

Thank you for sharing such an inspiring piece!

I'm liking this. It has a great 1750's Lord of England feel. As if official documents for the king are delivered within it.
Cheers

It is amazing! I would love to make a book like this some day. I've never thought of using pyrographer but it's a great idea. I have to try that some day.

I love pyrography and the old looks things..
I hope you do!
mmm.. Sewing method but, they are double sewn. I put a piece of cardboard at the edges of the pages to give "high".
This piece is sewn on the page with X X X (you can see them at this album [link] ). I hope you understand what I say!..

You're welcome. It really is fantastic.
I think I maybe understand or at least that I should be able to make something simillar.
Are you selftaught or have you taken any classes?
