I used the Casually Covered album for this little mini about a trip we took to the local zoo on a very warm day in November.
See those fibers on the page? They are actually the strings from the canvas page inside the album....I took some off to make some fringe on the page, and had this little pile sitting on my desk, so I just added them on the cover.
I splattered some paint, stitched with some teal thread, and added the appropriate animal embellies and some twine.
And I always decorate the back cover a bit, too:
OK, the inside pages. Basically, I painted the edges of each black (except the acrylic page) and then added paper to each page. I stuck with a somewhat neutral palette for the papers.
I added some splatters of mists and those were my foundations. On each page, I added a few OLD leaf rub ons, the photos, and a few flowers, banners, twine and other bits. In between some of the pages, I added some tags for my journaling (which I have added in at this point!).
On the acrylic page, I used a animal print stencil and some "Sand Dune" and "Tiger Eye" Sorbets (Art Anthology).
YAY! I love this little mini! Thanks for stopping by today!!!!
