I am WAY excited for this little album! It was very fun to decorate. When I received it, I knew exactly what I wanted to do, so I got to work! Everyone loves Pinterest, and everyone seems to be inspired by it. One problem I have is, I sit down to the computer to go through Pinterest, and I end up sitting at the computer longer than I had wanted. So I thought I would put my favorite 'pins' in an album. The album is the perfect size, doesn't take up a ton of space, and the best part is, I have my favorite pins right at my fingertips!
I started by covering the word "LOVE" and the base with washi tape. I did that because I wanted to paint the base. I used some Yes Paste and mixed it with some Mica Powders from Lindy's Stamp Gang. I smeared the Yes Paste on with a rewards card that you get from the grocery store, or pet store, just something plastic, that would give me a nice thin coverage. I set the base aside to dry for 24 hours and went to work on the word cut out. After it was wrapped, I took some Delphinium Turquoise spray from Lindy's Stamp Gang and dripped it onto the word. I started at the top, and dropped some along the edges of each letter. I didn't want to make a mess, but, I did want some areas to be darker. Dripping the color on allowed me more control.
