Good afternoon bloggers. I have a bit of mini album inspiration for you. I started this mini last week and, as the kiddos are out of school for summer, I work on it as and when I can.. it will be my summer project, lol... God knows I'm not gonna get a lot else done :) We are off bowling in a few minutes and they are pacing back and forth.... :/
The Products I've Used:
Prima Papers, Butterfly, Flowers, Vintage Trinkets & Shabby Chic Treasures.
Bare Chipboard Tabbed Album
White Acrylic Paint
Make it Crafty Butterfly Swirls Chippies
SCACD Nature's Tapestry Fan Die
Pearls, Ribbon & Lace
Before covering my pages I first painted them with white acrylic paint, using a baby wipe for a distressed look. Then I started with the front cover. I lay everything down without adhering it to get an idea of what I want to do - adding layers and different elements. Once I'm happy with it I start to adhere them into place.
I always use 3D foam tape and dots to add plenty of dimension between layers. Don't be afraid to layer things up on top of each other. Using dies can add extra elements and shapes.
Embellish as you please. I tend to use a lot of pearls and pearl swirls, love them :) Add a little ribbon and lace to your book rings to give it a finished look.
Now to start on the inside............. ;)
Make it Monday - always Anything Goes
Hope you like :)
