Hello friends and happy New Years Eve! So happy to see this year come to a close and praying 2021 is a much better year for everyone! Today, I'm sharing a mini album I created using the Cassy Mixable Album and a few Clear Scraps goodies! I used photos from a family photo shoot this past fall; if anything 2020 has made me realize how important family is!
I began by removing the protective film from the front of the first acrylic page. Using modeling paste and the 6 Inch Spiro Flower Mascil, I applied a light layer of the paste with a spatula. I then set it aside to dry.
Once I ensured my modeling paste was completely dry, I placed my Masil over the area and used Distress Oxide inks to color portions of the flower.
Here is a close up of the end result; you can see its not perfect but that is ok! I still love the beautiful effect!
Now I was ready to add paper and embellishments to my front cover. I used the Embroidery Hoops Chipboard Shape Embellishmentto accent the title. I decided to lightly brush the front with light grey chalk paint to allow some of the chipboard to show through.
My next page, which is chipboard, I painted the edges with chalk paint in off white (again not doing full coverage for a distressed look).
For my next acrylic page, I used the 4x6 Butterfly Flock Stencil with my modeling paste.
And again, I chose coordinating Distress Inks to color the butterflies.
It's difficult to see the detail but I set my photo at the bottom of the page to allow the stencil to take up a majority of my page.
Here is a better snapshot of the colored butterflies:
On the back of this page, I positioned my papers to line up with side A to not allow any papers to "show through".
Next is a larger chipboard page which nicely fits a 4x6 photo; you can even add multiple smaller photos if preferred.
For my last acrylic page, I applied coordinating alcohol inks to the outside edges blending with mixative in white.
I then adhered a smaller piece of patterned paper as my background allowing the alcohol ink to show through.
Thank you for stopping by the blog! Wishing you a safe and happy New Year!
