Clear Scraps Slimline Albums--Mermaid Tales
June 15, 2021
Hi there everyone! Laura here with you today to share some summer vibes with you in a
project created using one of the new Clear Scraps Slimline Albums!!
The Wood Wave Slimline Album gives the perfect base to create an album for all of
those summer pictures of the lake, the beach, the pool, whatever!
The cover is different patterned papers torn to create a wave look that adds some
texture to the front of the album too and then one of the Clear Scraps shakers,
the Mini Shaker Fin, is the perfect embellishment. I painted the top frame using kind
of an ombre look in different shades of aqua, and traced the tail shape on a beachy
patterned paper for the base piece, then filled the shaker with sparkly sequins in pretty
ocean colors to fit the theme of my mini album.
The next pages are covered with more patterned papers in shades of blue, aqua, and
patterns that made me think of a pool, or the beach. The pictures and a few embellishments
were added to complete the page. I love the larger size in these slimline albums, it gives you
a lot of extra room to add more pictures or embellish with a lot of fun stickers and such!
There is a lot of room to fit at least 2 pictures, and even full size pictures!
You can keep the pictures straight, or angle them--again, plenty of room!
For the last page, I had already traced the mermaid tail on
some patterned paper that reminded me of mermaid tail scales.
These were glued onto the back of the album at different angles,
then trimmed along the edge of the album, and after they were glued to the
album, and I went around the edges with some glitter glue to give it
just a little of that mermaid sparkle.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
