Amy's Album

Amy celebrated her Bat Mitzvah back in July. I know it's October already but better late than never!
Her mum told me that her daughter has a lot of hobbies. She plays the clarinet and piano. She likes reading, skiing, kayaking and playing football (Amy's team wear purple tops, purple shorts and purples socks). She also bakes, enjoys listening to music, spending time with family, going on holidays and getting together with friends. I couldn't include everything on this list in my cover design for her album but I did my best!
I have shown Amy with her clarinet in one hand and some skis (with a ski glove!) in the other. To Amy's right are some mountains to represent her interest in skiing, a bright red kayak and some books. To her left is a piano, a baking sheet with biscuits on it, a wooden spoon and a rolling pin. There are some music notes dotted around as well. Amy is wearing the purple top and shorts of her football kit.
Amy's Bat Mitzvah celebration invitation had a rainbow colour scheme. Therefore I made the lettering purple and used the colours of the rainbow on the cover of her album to match it. I also added coloured hearts in two corners of the cover, to match the hearts that featured on her invitation.
I decorated several pages inside the album as well. Each page had more brightly coloured hearts on it. From the top, you can see the page with books on it to illustrate Amy's love of reading, the page with some tiny skis, goggles and ski poles, the page with a mixing bowl, wooden spoon and some biscuits and, finally, the page showing Amy with a friend in a kayak. Amy's mum often takes Amy and several friends kayaking and was keen for me to include her friends in the album.
Finally, the opening page of the album had yet another clarinet on it. I was tasked to create those tiny little silver keys once again!
Amy's mum loved the design of her daughter's album, as did her auntie, who declared it "gorgeous". I had a long list of things to include in this design and I think it turned out well. The rainbow-coloured hearts were a bright and colourful new addition.

Another wonderful and amazing card! I like the hearts in the corners and how they ground (for lack of the precise word since I don't know it) the composition.
