Happy Wednesday y’all!!
Now y’all know I like to mix things up a bit! LOL! I normally get the mixed media kit but this month I got both the mixed media kit and the scrapbook kit, so this little mini is made with this month’s scrapbook kit.
When I opened up that scrapbook kit and saw those cute stitched frames by 49 & Market I knew I was going to be making this mini! And the cardstock by AB Studio was just perfectly designed to make these little pages…these pages were all cut from one sheet of cardstock!
I knew they would be perfect to frame up those lovely designs on the AB Studio cardstock! For this I just cut the cardstock to fit the frames and glued them to the back side of the frames. I then cut a small strip of scrap card stock and taped it to the back left of each “page” to help form more of an area that could but used as a spine. More on how I used that additional edge in a bit.
Next I turned my attention to the cover, I added a part of the chipboard chain and gears. I just cut a portion of the design and I painted it with some of the white crackle paste I had sitting on my desk from the mixed media kit. Although it didn’t really crackle since I wan’t using it in the way crackle paste should be used to crackle properly, I do like how it looks. You could absolutely just use whatever white paint you have. I also inked it with a brown ink pad along the edges before glueing it down.
Here you can see that additional scrap cardstock I used to create a bit of a spine. I used my standard size hole punch to punch two holes in it (all the way through each sheet) and ran the lace through to form the binding of the book, tying it in the front of the book.
I used the same white crackle paste from the mixed media kit to paint the Darice flowers and sprinkled some gold glitter from one of my previous kits on them. I also tucked on the the Tim Holtz Timepiece watch faces in there as well after giving it a quick wipe with some white paint.
As you can see the book is not filled just yet, I can’t decide how I want to use it but I couldn’t let the opportunity pass to create it and now it’s made and ready to fill! It will be a great gift or quick art journal when the mood strikes me!
Thanks for stoping by today!
