Hi Roadies, Stacy here on the MR blog today with a bright and sunshine filled mini album to share. This time round, I decided to make a sunburst album filled with tags and pockets!
I really love the possibilities of Maya Road products. In this case, I altered the "Home Sweet Home Mixed Media Album" to the size and shape I needed for this project. Did I also mention that I hoarded 3 sets of this just because they are so versatile? :) The chimney and height of this album was removed and reduced to fit the size required.
As usual, I had to incorporate some form of binding in my project. Using Maya Road Jute & Twine Cording together with Twine Cording Solids - Cherry Red, I bounded the mini album with double coptic binding and I love how the two colors came about together! The cords really outlined each stitch of the binding and it gives a study spine to the album.
For the cover, I decided to give the title a little shine, just by using the gold glitter dust and some multi-medium glue. Easy job, and I get the color that I require for the project! The star was part of the speech bubble chipboard set, and I colored it with yellow coptic makers, then misting it with some light sparkle.
The part of this album that I love is when it opens out, like a sunburst effect and encasing 8 tags where I made them with pockets as well.
Last but not least, the manila shipping tags which I decorated with felt flowers, kraft flowers and Chipboard speech bubbles.
