I'm very happy that I invited one of my most favorite scrappers, Mlle Séverine, for this new Inspiration Tuesday :) She's going to inspire you a LOT :)
Thank you Séverine for joining us this Tuesday!
It's a honor for me to be a guest this Tuesday on Celine's blog and I hope you'll like what I came up with for you!
If you like inks and paints, then you might enjoy this project :)
Here's a quick list of what you might need...
# A mini album (I used one from Maya Road with evenloppes, 16/14 cm)
# Sultane papers but feel free to use whatever papers you like
# Acrylic paints (blue, yellow,…)
# Spray inks (color wash, glimmer mists, maya mists...)
# Studio Calico fabrips
# American Crafts alphas
# Basic Grey rub-ons
# masking tape
# Lace, ribbons...
# Round punches
Once you covered all the pages with gesso and acrylic paints, work on the cover with more colors. You want it to be very special.
Acrylic paints are applied randomly on the cover of the album, so that you don't end up with a very perfect look.
You don't have to put paint on every single inch of the canvas, let your brush go and have fun!
Once the paint is dry, use masks and spray inks.
Once it's dry, play with masking tape, stickers, ribbons, whatever comes to your mind.
For the inside pages, do exactly the same and add your photos.
Add more gesso if you wish to work on a cleaner space.
Once you're done with the pages, add ribbons, stickers, lace...
Keep the kraft enveloppes clean : they will contrast with the paints!
I added paper pages because I ad lots of photos.
The pages are the same dimensions as the rest of my album.
Just grab whaterver paper you like, it simply needs to match the paints you used in your album.
Concerning my photos, I used the online tool called Poladroid to turn all of my photos into polaroid :D Check the Poladroid website to try!
check back on Thursday for a giveaway from Mots en Scrap! :)
