Out Of My Norm

Hey there everyone, today i'm sharing a mini album that I created that is a bit "out of my norm"!  With that being said I had so much fun creating this.  I pulled out gesso, paints, hot glue, did a little distressing, and lots of Tim Holtz goodies!  I picked up all of these goodies at The Scrapbooking Studio!

Here is what the finished mini looks like! The mini album itself is made out of corrugated board that I cut down to 6" x 6" in size.  The pattern paper I used is the 8x8 Tim Holtz paper stash Collage. The binding is done with the We R Memory Keepers Cinch.  I tied some ribbon on the coils and added lots of goodies hanging from it.

I did a little distressing and tearing the outside of the papers. I then painted them along with the corrugated board with gesso and started adhering it down.  Once the paper was down I used some Wendy Vecchi embossing paste for a little stencil work in the corners.

I added some gesso along with some Walnut Stain distress paint here and there on the cover.

Here are a couple of close up photos for you.  Loving the new Tim Holtz hinges, Remnant Rubs & Alpha Parts!

On the flower I added a little bit of brown Distress Paint, and a little Gesso on the paper.

Thanks so much for stopping by today, hope you enjoyed my mini album cover.
