Mini Album Cover

The day started pretty much as any other, quick tidy, hoover, washing on etc followed by a a tea break and a dash to the shops for diner.

All that done I decided to do a mini scrapbook for a few holiday snaps of the girls.

Today was the covers turn.


First off, I chose a few papers and set about covering the mount board base, gluing it down with slap-it-on and leaving it to dry.  Once dry I trimmed the paper to the size of the board, this was done to both sides of the cover front and back inside and out.

Other papers were layered on top and torn at an angle for interest then the edges were distressed with a little  ink and creased and torn a little more, a lace punch was used to add detail onto one of the layers, a pencil was used to mark the lower edge of the distressed upper layers before the were stuck in place and lace was added along the line. The top layers were then attached.

A frame was cut from mount board and the edges were inked, it was covered in glue and dipped in glitter to add a bit of bling.

 Card butterfly's were dipped in distress ink and dried off, a bow was made from blue/cream string.
The inner oval from the frame was distressed around the edges, a "memories"rub on was put on the oval and then glittered over to tie in with the frame.

A swirl, the butterfly's and a few coloured hole reinforcers were added and stuck down.

 Finished !!!
for today that is.
