Tech Photo Journal by E-Derby Tech Photo Journal by E-Derby
My latest photo journal.

I had a leftover resistor from the TV-B-Gone kit and decided to incorporate it into the cover design for my newest photo journal.

I loved that the silver foiling almost made it look like the resistor had actually been soldered. Plus it was shiny & shiny=goodness! What I didn't expect was how featherlight the silver foil was. It floated everywhere once freed from its package. I used a paintbrush to burnish it onto the adhesive. I used both a fine writing tube for the dots and a sheet of adhesive dots to add a kind of distressed feel to some of the foiling.

I had to seal the surface of the cover with fixative so the silver won't tarnish over time.

I added a pocket to the journal for keepsakes. In this case it will be the schematics for the TV-B-Gone project.

Nice! So is it for mad scientists who want to keep track of their personal photos? ;)

Well, maybe not this one. However, I'm doing another, similar album. This one might fit the bill as it's title will be, "Byte Me."

This is based on a favorite phrase of a friend of mine, who is a bit mad now that I think of it... good mad though. She is never boring, always curious and has a twisty, twisty sense of humor. :laughing:
