Like this one:
or this cute stamp from 100 Proof Press:
So without further ado, here is my mini album I did using the Genuinely Jane Studio Picket Fence Album.
Oh My! I had so much fun with this little album... For the cover I started with painting the base...
Then using various Ranger Paint Dabbers I brushed lightly onto the album.
Now... the fun really begins! Using my Melting Pot, I melted UTEE...
I then poured it onto my album and stamped in to it using my 100 Proof Press "Verbena Flower Head"
**NOTE** When you do this, make sure you stamp into Versamark before the hot UTEE. This keeps your stamp from being stuck in the UTEE, (kind of like Pam and cooking!)
I then stamped on to the cover using the 100 Proof Press stamp, "Accounting Script" & Archival Ink.
The flowers on the cover were made by using plain Prima flowers and then stamping on them with various 100 Proof Press Stamps, then painted with Glimmer Glam:
The next page I painted with various Ranger Paint Dabbers again. I then stamped and embossed the "Music Lines" stamp from 100 Proof Press.
This page was stenciled and sprayed... then sprayed and inked... and then a little Prima paper and Prima flowers painted with some Distress Paint... and wha-la!
Now.. this page was fun too!
A little gesso, Perfect Pearls & Distress Re-Inkers in a Mini-Mister, and Paint!
I used a Prima Stencil and Claudine Hellmuth Gesso...
...and created a little dimension...
Once it dried I sprayed a custom mist on to it that I created by mixing water, Perfect Pearls, and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Re-Inker..
I then added some Prima paper that was distressed and inked up and then stamped with one of my favorite 100 Proof Press Stamps, "2nd Largest Squiggle". I then stamped "Flower Face" and fussy cut... add a little bling and, once again, wha-la!
More Distress Paint, (I love this stuff)... My custom mist, Tim Holtz Alterations Die, and Prima goodness...
I covered the last piece in Claudine Hellmuth Multi-Medium and adhered some burlap...
I am so happy with my little mini album, I hope that you have been inspired and have learned a few more techniques to add to your arsenal. Now hop on over to Irit and see all the fabulousness that she has created....
