Hey everyone, Happy Monday!
Today I am sharing the cover of an album that I recently completed. I was asked to this album for my neighbor's Mom who was celebrating her 82nd Birthday. I felt so fortunate to do this for her. The pictures provided were of her Grandparents and parents, she and her husband and her children and grandchildren. It was great.
The album is from BoBunny and the pages are 9X9. I used some K&Company paper I had in my stash for the cover. I used a vintage doily that I had and I sprayed that with some Art Archaeology mist that I had so that it would be green. I layered that with a die from Sizzix called Vintage doily and the the flowers from Prima Marketing and the bling. The dies from Tim Holtz are of a bird cage and a bird. I die cut the cage from chipboard and painted it- then I added some crackle glaze and the pearls at the bottom from FabScraps. I cut the bird from paper and used my distress inks in Worn Lipstick and Tea dye along the edges. The pennant is from Heidi Swapp. You just add ink and it has resist on it. I like the way it turned out.
I'll share some more of the album in the future. I hope you enjoy!
