Apple Story Album
October 21, 2012
Good morning to all Clear Scraps fans and this weekend Elena is going to share with you some Fall inspiration. I adore this time of year and most of all I adore the apple smell in the air. This year we have a great harvest of apples in our country home, so I took many pics in case to feel this spirit in the winter.
So I decided to make an album and I used Mixable Sassy 8*8 Album for this purpose. I like that it has different edges, and the mix of chipboard and acrylic cascading pages. Part of them are scalloped, the other are circles. so you have an ability to play with texture and shapes.
I used some Clearly Accent Embellishments
For the cover I took Leaves Embellishments
which I painted with alcohol inks and added the Glossy accent for a water drops effect
for the next page, which is acrylic I've made some apple 'printed background' , here are some tips:
(Sorry, I took the 1st pic at night, as a preparatory stage)
I daubed the acrylic page with Starburst mist, I made random splashes.
after it has been dried completely I outlined them with permanent pen in a form of an apple. Obviously you can just add the photo, but I decided to add 2Crafty chipboard Tree, painted it with mists, paints and Pearl pen, and here is the result:
I added Leaves Embellishments which I colored and covered with Stickles
and I used Butterflies Embellishments and added some pearls
the back cover of this album is acrylic too, so while I was coloring butterflies and leaves with alcohol inks, I used this page as a padding mat, so you can see there are some splashes. I suppose it adds more natural look to the whole page.
have a great week end
Over the top Gorgeous!!! LOVE the daubed apples!
