A Cover Closeup

A Cover Closeup

Take album out and remove the inside pages from the album. Take white acrylic paint and paint the album front and back and inside. Apply two coats. The coats do not have to be perfect as we are going for a shabby look. Ink edges in brown ink.

We will work on the cover now. For the cover, take out the multicolored chevron piece of paper. Cut a 4.75" x 4.75" piece with the chevron centered on the page. If desired use a corner rounder and round all the edges. Ink edges in brown.

Take the wood doily and glue down on the page centered vertically and about about 0.25" from the top but before you glue down tuck the kraft parcel tag underneath the wood doily on the right with the bottom of the tag touching the bottom of the album.

Take the LOVE transparency frame. Add photo underneath the frame if desired and then mount on peachy wood grain paper and trim excess. Add the "my heart" words - cut from the journaling sheet. Add the camera flair as shown onto the transparency. Glue on top of the wood doily on the left side as shown.

Take a 2.5" piece of the scallop crochet trim. Glue down across the album next to the camera flair on the right. It should reach the right edge of the album.

Add the lime green burlap rose as shown. Tuck in the two mini kraft tickets to the right side of the burlap rose. Glue down. Take an 8" piece of the seam binding (in dark teal). Tie a bow and gown down underneath the rose. Add the mini raspberry bead next to the camera flair.

Finally, add the mocha button pin tucked behind the rose at the time. Cut the light blue clock face from the journaling sheet. Mount on foam dots and plus as shown under the mini ticket.
