Star Mini Album by Lisa

Hey All! Happy July 1st to you! It's Lisa Novogrodski here and today I have one of Gina's "Star Mini Albums" to share with you.

Grab yourself a beverage and relax. There are a lot of sweet fun pages to view on this one. (you might want a munchie too)
For the cover I used a coat of gesso as my base. Then I hit it with the heat tool (not really hit it but you know what I mean) and then applied some Magical Micas. I let it dry for a bit and while still tacky but not wet I brushed crackle over it. The crackle smeared the coloring a bit and allowed it to shade and some of the gesso to peek through.
To the little stars I added Lindys Mists and Shimmerz sprays. 
I've also added some of Gina's Glassine bags to the pages of this album. I scored them in order to fold them then adhered. This leaves a little pocket to tuck things in and places to adhere photos or other small treasures.
Here is a little vintage 4th of July image I found. Sweet isn't it?

I thought it would be fun to create a little fold out page. I used a die cut from Bo Bunny, cut it in half and attached with a paper hinge.
I like to use die cuts as photo mats.

More glassine bags with little tags tucked in.
Fun star banner and beaded pin.
Whew! Thats a wrap! Thanks for sticking with me and be sure to check out Gina's Designs Store!
