Truth Coffee mini book

I have decided to join in with a new blog challenge site for Mini books...  you can find the Mini Album Makers Challenge here!

This is my entry:

Back in 2014 I started the negotiations to create an artwork 2m x 4m with a 3.5m airship for Truth Coffee... This fat mini book chronicles the work....

I made it from scratch so it would fit.

I like to print all my photos first and make my pages to house the photos.  This works for me...

The idea is that I like each double spread to tell a story about one thing...

Then in the end, I make the cover to fit all the pages I have created!
 This is a close up of the cover below.  I created the Truth logo in a 3D program and 3D printed it for the space I left.  The stamped image of the 3 stooges lost their hats when I got a little over zealous with the Ground Espresso distress spray... so I re-stamped the hats on card stock, fussy cut them and added them on top for the final cover...

The close catch is a strip of leather which I embossed with an embossing folder, glued to the back cover and used an eyelet over a little knob to keep the book closed.

I did not take photos of this album as I worked... so here is one of the inside pages.  I did however shoot a video which is below so you can see all the fold out pages, it is slightly fuzzy, but you get the idea!
