A POP UP MINI ALBUM WITH HEARTFELT CREATIONS -UNDER THE SEA

HELLO !!!!

Its Wednesday today and that means it's Heartfelt Creations Day !!!! New projects and new inspirations, it all leaves me awestruck. You have to visit the Heartfelt Creations blog. We have been showing many beautiful projects from Under the Sea collection .Really !!!! what a collection!!! I never new it can be so challenging and yet so beautiful. I got this as my DT submission package and believe me !!! First look at it and  I was really nervous !!! For two days , I just stared at it with nothing coming to my mind. Then all things fell in place.
I have been wanting to make a pop up album from a very long time; but something like this was just next to impossible. So far this has been my best project till date. It was a result of days of hard work and back breaking one!!! I would stand for hours together to complete one full page. The result is seen to be believed. Each page reveals the enchanting world under the sea. You can almost feel the cool quiet water and the beauty that is just evident from each page.

How did I make it !!! It is really impossible to write exact step by step instructions for the whole project but I have tried to write most of it. You will be able to know each and every details and yes!!! it is very heavily detailed !!!!! as you open up each page.
the post is loaded with pictures as I wanted to give you a thorough walk through the sea floor.
And yes !! there is a video too.



So hold your breadth for now we are taking a dive into the sea!!!!!






















So what do you think !!!!
