Tami here on the Clear Scraps blog with you today.
Do you get snow where you live? Here in Texas - especially here in South Texas - snow is a rarity. Last year was certainly an anomaly! We not only got snow, we KEPT getting snow and the snow stayed around for days! i have lived here my whole life and although I remember a few other snows, this one was something else!
I wanted to make a special mini album to document this event, so I selected Clear Scraps' Slimline Wood Tab Mini Album as my base...
I started by using color washes made from acrylic paint mixed with water to paint all the pages. I used a mix of blues and created ombre patterns on each.
For the front cover, I used a silver stencil paste and Clear Scraps' 6" Nordic Snowflakes to add a raised shimmery design at the top of the album cover. Once it was dry, I added some printed paper and my title using letters in chipboard and stickers.
I used white pigment ink to stencil snowflakes on all the pages as well...
Once all my pages were ready, it was time to decide what photos to use and what I wanted to journal. Here are pics of all the pages of my album..
Clear Scraps' Slimline albums come in chipboard, acrylic and wood. There are also several styles of each type. The large, tall size is great for vacations, holidays, birthdays, etc.
