Morning all, it’s Thursday already, I hope you’re having a wonderful week so far. It’s finally cooling down here, thank goodness, not sure how much longer I can go without sleep. Today, I’d like to show you the final pages of the altered album I made for Lisa’s paper crafting event art the end of July. If you’ve missed the previous entries you can find them HERE, HERE & HERE.
The ‘cover’ looks like the frame of a filmstrip. I blended acrylic paints – pastel blue, pink & green - over the inside & out. When they had dried, I stamped the little Kanban bird with Stream Adirondack ink & stamped the music score over that with black Archival. I added the metal bird & clock embellishment with a piece of bakers’ twine.
For the first page I stamped the butterfly with Versamark on white cardstock & heat embossed with white EP. Then I blended Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose & Victorian Velvet distress inks on top & used a baby wipe to remove the DI from the embossed areas.
The dragonfly was stamped onto a piece of Kanban cardstock with Versamark & embossed with Stampendous’ Frantage EP. I flicked some water onto the card & quickly covered the water drops with the same EP & heat set. This was a technique I had read about in an issue of Craft Stamper magazine & I was surprised that it worked. You need to work quickly, but it’s great if you want a random, splatter effect.
This is the back cover. I used the same pastel acrylics that I’s used on the front; the blue as the base, the green through the stonewall mask & the blue & pink through a circle mask. Added some stamping with Stream Adirondack & black Archival & that was it.
