Mini Album By the Sea

Good morning everyone, here's a fun mini album that is perfect to showcase all those upcoming summer/vacation photos.   This album is not your usual album - it contains pages made of chipboard, corrugated board, felt, canvas and acrylic.  The possibilities are endless because you can use this album as it comes, or take it apart and rearrange it.

The Graphic 45 By the Sea collection was the perfect paper to use with its bright colors, lots of designs and different sized elements that work well together.

Since I was adding fussy cut elements to the front cover, I first inked the chipboard with ColorBox Chestnut Roan chalk ink.   Three different sheets of paper were cut apart and reassembled on the front cover.

 A peak inside.

There are lots of spaces for photos.  I cut apart one of the squares from the Window Die cut to create triangles which I inked and then added rub-ons on one.

The next page has real shells that were nestled amongst some May Arts burlap ribbon and then glittered.  The felt page was painted with Art Anthology's Honolulu Blue Sorbet and Aloha Velvet paints through a ColorBox Art Screen.  I mixed the colors together, then added die cuts and ribbons.

The reverse side of the felt page reused the ColorBox Art Screen this time with Art Anthology's Waimea Bay Colorations Spray as I wanted just a hint of color.  A Spellbinders anchor was die cut and added to the next page because it worked well with the selected papers.

The lighthouse scrap was left over after I fussy cut the front cover.  I love the colors and the elements so I fixed it, mixed it with cardstock and other papers to fit the album.  The next page is a large canvas circle which I lightly painted through the ColorBox Art Screen with Art Anthology's Honolulu Blue Sorbet and then  Aloha Velvet was painted around the edges.  I purposely frayed the canvas.

The acrylic page was spritzed with Art Anthology's Waimea Bay Colorations, several rub-ons were added and some May Arts ribbon was tied around the page.  A small strip of pattern paper was added to the bottom and Aloha Velvet paint was used as the adhesive.  The final page is a pocket page that can hold all the treasures from your trip or additional photos.

I didn't want to decorate the back page so I chose to paint it with Art Anthology's Chocolate Sorbet paint creating a white-wash effect (only it's brown!).
