Hello and happy Thursday! I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! This time of year we usually have some snow on the ground but its been unseasonably warm (not that I'm complaining!). Honestly, I love making winter-themed projects but I'm not a big fan of snow! Today I'm sharing the Mini Mixable Pint Size Album along with a tutorial!
After removing the protective film from both sides of the acrylic pieces, I painted the edges of my pages with white acrylic paint. For the chipboard pieces, I knew I was going to add patterned paper to both sides so I painted about an inch in. For my acrylic pages, I only painted the front as well as lined the outside edges. You do not have to make the paint lines perfect on the acrylic as it creates a nice "snowy" effect.
Taking the front acrylic page, I used the 6 Inch Nordic Snowflake Mascil with StazOn in Teal. It was helpful to apply in layers and dab the ink.
Here is the end result of the inking! I love the contrast against the white!
After ensuring my ink was dry, I was then free to embellish the front cover! I opted for minimal embellishments because I wanted the acrylic to be the highlight as well as allow the first page to show through.
I covered each chipboard page with patterned paper along with a 2x3 photo mat. Wallet sized photos are great for the Mini Mixable Albums! I then added smaller embellishments such as sticker and washi tape.
For my second acrylic page, I had the papers and embellishments mirror each other so they line up together. This allows for more acrylic to be visible. It works best if you have multiple matching embellishments or you can utilize hand punches in your stash!
The last page is the largest as well as chipboard. You can fit two wallet sized photos or place more embellishments.
