To decorate the outside sleeve I covered it with patterned paper and stenciled it with a beautiful stencil created by one of my good friends. I painted my pieces of chipboard with a deep burgundy color and then highlighted it all with Inka Gold.
To finish off my pieces I added gold embossing powder and adhesive gemstones and flowers.
Here are a few additional photos, the inside of the mini album is made with envelopes.
I hope you give this technique a try, it's fairly fast and easy and it looks beautiful when you're finished!
