I used the fabulous Fall acorns and Bits Of Honey on my card. I painted the corns with acrylic paint then spread some crackle paint over it to enhance the colors. I just sprayed the bits of honey with Lindys Stamp gang spray after priming them with gesso.
Here is view of the back of the card when it is open. I strung some seam binding through the front hole in the card,. I spayed the seam binging with Lindys Starburst spray in My Mojito Green to match the die cut leaves on the front of the card.
For my next project I created another mini album in a different style. I used the Montage Paper Collection using the Wisdom and Fairyland papers..
On the cover I used the smaller piece from the Roman Clock Set Large. The butterfly is from the Royal Monarchs collection. I inked both pieces with Ranger distress ink in Vintage Photo.
I created a tag with the flower on top and a small key from the Vintage Keys set.
This is just a closeup of the cover. The jeweled piece is a Recollection flower piece and I used burlap and some flower buds tucked underneath.
This is the album closed with twine that I adorned with some beads.
This is the view of the inside of the back cover. I love the pattern on the paper and did not want to cover it up.
My next project is a trifold pocket album. I followed a pattern from a Kathy Orton book on mini albums. I used the Montage Paper Collection, using the Wisdom and Fairyland papers.Sometimes mixing and matching chipboard pieces from different collections can match perfectly. That is what I did here. I used Manor Hinges and Damask Flourish to create the design on my cover. I painted them with black gesso.
I added a jeweled brad to complete the look.
When you open the album, you can see there is plenty of room for pictures and journaling. The waterfall feature can hold many photo's.
This is a view of the back of the trifold. I used black cardstock for the base. I love the black and pink color combination together.
This is the Damask Flourish shown on its own.
Here are the little folders and tag cards shown, pulled out of their pockets. Each one opens up to add more photos or journaling.
