Spring is here so let's "Go Green". More than just the color green. Let's think more about the planet and use a little "Green" in our projects. I created this Mini album with scraps and packaging from Prima.
The cover and back are pieces from a clear acrylic Prima album that I have been hanging onto for a couple of years now. Never knowing what to do with them and my mentality of "I better keep this, just in case I need it" I just couldn't get rid of them lol. So I finally found a purpose for them. I used Prima's Paintables clear stamps and stamped the edges with Staz-On black Ink. Then sporadically painted Glimmer Glam on the cover. (Organic Garden). Once it dried I sprayed the cover with Chalkboard glimmer mist(Inch Worm) and heat dried it. The white frame is from the $1 bin at Michaels. The banner is made from a scrap piece of canvas I had in my stash.
Maya Road's envelopes worked awesome as filler pages in this little album. I embellished them with Prima clear stamps and Hydrangia flowers, on the edge.
Here I distressed and altered two pieces of Prima packaging and sewed them together with a scrap piece of lace between the two. It made the perfect base for a background.
On this envelope, I took the scrap edge of a Prima Journaling card to embellish the opening. I used scrap paper to make the large envelope for the next page.
Here is more Prima packaging, sewn and used as a tag to display pictures of my kiddos.
I often cut apart my Say It In Crystals. and have ends and bits left over. I took a few of my left overs and used them on this page.
In a package of flowers there are always those flowers that end up in the bottom of your stash. I took a couple of my white flowers and altered them to match my project.
I hope you can look through your stash and scraps for new inspiration. Hugs and have a wonderful, inspiring week.
