Mini Album by Chris

A KaiserCraft Beyond the Page album and lots of goodies from my art room came together as a Grandma album. (Check out these catalogue and idea magazines that Kim has been putting in her packages.)

Albums are a piece of cake to do; you just need some imagination (which every one of you has!), glue, and a variety of supplies. All the pages in this album are covered with Echo Park paper, sanded, coated with some Picket Fence Distress Stain and edged with either Tattered Rose Distress Ink or Mustard Seed Distress Ink. The gems adorning the different pages are I-Rocks and Silver Pearl Liquid Pearls. I used my Alcohol Inks—willow and Citrus to color the metallic letters (grandchildren) and Xmas Red Stickles to outline one rose. The white photomats on the last two pages are edged with Ripe Persimmon Distress Ink and run through either the swiss dot cuttlebug embossing folder or the Tim Holtz Regal Flourish one and the flourish is using the flourish die and white glitter cardstock. To finish it off, I sprayed each page with Tattered Angels Old Lace Mist and used 1/8 inch scor tape to adhere the green ribbon around the edges of the largest page.

What’s on your shelves that you could combine with a Beyond the Page project?
