Hello cool people! Autumn here with a little tutorial for you on creating a simple mini album. Recently, I was sorting my designer paper and decided to remove the chipboard backs off of the pads of paper (ahem - to make more room for paper...) Anyway, I thought it would be fun to create a painted mini album that didn't have to be covered with designer paper (because apparently I need to hoard it!) Wrapping book covers can be so tricky, ya know, so I hope you will enjoy this option.
The pages inside are envelopes so I can store little notes, scripture, and journal snippets. I prepped the envelopes with gesso to support the weight and paint.
Because the book is quite thick, I was able to add 3-Dimensional elements, and I will be able to stuff the envelopes quite full. I had intended to do more pages, but my husband used my craft envelopes for bills! To think! ;0
For me, painting my own cover and elements was a perfect way to play along with Branka's Think Pink challenge this month. I don't normally buy pink, so this was the perfect alternative.
