Hello everyone! It's Jennifer on the blog today to share a mini book I created using the Acrylic Wave Slimline Album plus a few Clear Scraps goodies! I have been wanting to scrapbook my daughter's senior photos from last year for awhile and thought one of the Slimline Albums would be perfect!
I began by placing drops of yellow alcohol ink along the outside edges of my front cover (after removing the protective film). I blended in some select areas but did not worry about full coverage. I then added Mixative in Snow Cap.
Once my alcohol ink was dry, I flipped over my front cover and stamped this wreath image around the edges using StazOn in black. Again, I did not worry about it being perfect as I knew I would be adding patterned paper to the front of my album.
I set my cover aside to work on my shaker which would be the focal point of the front of my book. Using the 3x4 Rectangle Mini Shaker Shape, I applied patterned paper to the chipboard base with Beacon Adhesive. I then cut away excess paper with an x-acto knife and my sanding tool.
Here you can see I added numbers as well as embellishments from the collection I used along with sequins. After adhering the acrylic piece, I like to secure my shaker by using these clip pins while everything dries.
Next, I went to work on my Fancy Butterflies Chipboard Embellishment Shapes. I painted both with white acrylic paint and then used embossing ink with powder
I adhered my chipboard butterfly to the top left of my shaker as shown using my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive. I also added some paper flowers I had in my stash.
Here is a close up of my shaker which I also added a cluster of paper flowers from my stash.
I covered my pages with 4.5 x 10.75 inch pieces of patterned paper and used 4x6 photos. I love the longer length of the pages to add journaling or extra embellishments.
Here, I used two 4x4 photos which I matted onto white cardstock.
For this page, you can see I used my other Fancy Butterfly Chipboard Embellishment Shape. I decided to use a light pink embossing powder to contrast the yellow background.
