I had originally planned to make a spring-themed album, but once I had covered the pages with patterned paper, it just seemed to want to be a baby girl's album instead....funny how projects sometimes take on a life of their own!
I knew 3 people who had had little girls in the past few months, but only one of them lived close enough that I would be able to meet up and give her the album, so I got in touch and asked if I could use her photos for my project and she was kind enough to say yes....so here is a chronicle of the first couple months in little Hazel's life:
After covering the pages with patterned paper, I sanded and inked the edges. The photos were collaged 4 images to a 4x6" printout so each image was 2"x3". I was able to layer 2 images on some of the pages but one photo worked well on most of them. The embellishments were mostly cut from the paper and popped up with foam adhesive, but some of them came from the Special Delivery collection, also by Pebbles Inc. I tied a variety of laces, fibers and ribbons to the rings using larks-head knots.
The chipboard piece on the cover was painted with white acrylic paint then heat-embossed with glitter embossing powder; I did 2 alternating layers of each, which, combined with the use of the heat tool, created a raised, bubbled effect. I then inked the surface lightly with pink ink.
Thanks so much for stopping by; I'm sure you can come up with a wonderful use for this cute shaped album-it's so versatile and will look terrific no matter how you decide to finish it. have a super week!
