Hello to everyone!
Sorry for posting my new Inspiration Tuesday a little bit late today but I've been experiencing computer problems but everything was fixed this morning by Damien so YAY! I can finally post my IT #11 now! :)
So I couldn't resist making a new mini album this week! and I have to admit that I really like it! :) Another quick, easy, textured, colorful mini album this week :)
I used some left over pieces of October Afternoon papers, those that I used for a recent class I taught in France last weekend.
I also used some Studio Calico FabricStrips that I LOVE LOVE LOVE! Those are printed fabric sheets that you can easily cut and punch and they are adhesive! They came up amazing design with those, you should definitely check their website!
Here's the supply list...
Papers (October Afternoon, Collage Press); alphas (Cosmo Cricket, Kesi'art); Stickers (American Crafts, October Afternoon, Kesi'art); Self-adhesive fabric sheet (Studio Calico); Fabric stickers (7gypsies); Flair (American Crafts); Rubons (Cosmo Cricket); Color Wash & masking tape. WOODEN MINI ALBUM : PAUSE CREATIVE.
ok here we go!
Step #1 : Prepare your mini album. What I love with the Pause Creative wooden mini album is that the wood is very thick and tender at the same time but also the pages inside! The paper just soak the ink up and it's faster to dry! which is super important to me as I'm a very impatient girl! :)
I chose the STEAM blue for my cover here and once dry, you can start decorating the cover.
Step #2 : Prepare each and every page with spray ink. I tried to choose different colors for each page, to give more color and have a wider palette to match my papers.
Don't be scared to use the fabric stickers, or stickers, or any punch as a mask to spray on top : it will give texture and design to your white pages.
Step #3 : Once you have all your pages dry, you can start glueing your photos and papers.
I wanted to show you as well that I made a BIG beginner mistake. You know that you're supposed to CUT the design you want to use on a rubon sheet. Well I was too lazy and just wanted to use TWO letters. Well, one letter got stuck to my picture, just right on my eye! So I had to fix this and decided to punch a star into paper and glue it on top of my rubon mistake. See how a mistake turn into something you're supposed to have made on purpose! :D
Step #4: I always finish up my pages with one or two lines of black pencil around the edges.
Step #5 : Prepare small clouds into fabric.
And here are the photos of the whole mini album!
A very simple and esay-to-make mini album as you're working with 4x6 photos :)
Feel free to leave a comment with links to your work so that I can admire your Inspiration Tuesday art! :)
See you on Thursday for new giveaways!
