Canvas Mini Album
I love minis. Since I tend to take WAY too many photos, it's a nice way for me to share all of the shots I got. Even if it's excessive.....
This one is from our trip to the Dominican Republic, last April.
Hope you enjoy!
I used a Prima canvas album and loved it. It was a great way to step away from the normal paper layouts and really have a messy, inky, texture-rich, crafty good time!
Notice the small envelope? (Bottom, centre/right)
It holds a tag and more pictures of us in the airport, pre-trip.
I used canvas pages, chipboard pages, and some standard, paper pages, which I slipped into page protectors throughout the album.
The pages in page protectors have a bit of glare on them in these pics. My apologies.
I used a number of stencils, chipboard pieces, screens, and die-cuts with my glimmer mist on the pages, especially the canvas ones.
To make the starfish look a little more 3 dimensional, I put a pop dot under the middle and then secured the outer tips of the 'arms' flat to the page.
The flower is made from a coffee filter, a bit of glimmer mist and a rhinestone.
I used a lot of corrugate cardboard from Creative Imaginations. This is a bit of a staple for me. I use it on everything. It adds such a great texture so quickly and easily.
That's part one of the Dominican mini album. I'll add the rest tomorrow.
Hope you liked it.
