Hello Bad Girls!!
One of my very favorite things to create are mini books! I love creating on such a smaller scale and the pages themselves become mini creations within the scale of the album. Each one is unique in it's own way and offers a new perspective every time you turn a page. This mini leather album is so rich in texture and offers so many possibilities.
The cover is decorated in flowers, swirls and a beautiful butterfly. I placed fabric letters in the flower center and sprayed the entire album in Glimmer Mist. Wlanut Gold is my absolute favorite color! I love the shabby and aged effect I get when I spray it on any surface.
This first page, I paint a few layers of color onto the background. Then I placed an iron on (tree) onto the page over the paint. The flower centers look so sweet in a row at the bottom of the page-it adds a pop of color and sparkle.
Once again-the layered paint look took over! I painted over the edges of the canvas paper in the same cream color. Then i added some iron on branches to the sides and used packaging to matte my photo. I love using unexpected things within my books. i think it adds so much character.
Each page is unique but I carried over the same techniques on each page for a unified look even if each page is entirely different.
Notice the slice of packaging along the bottom of the page?
Clear pages are some of my very favorite to work with. I love using the elements on the other pages behind it to enhance it. It also forces me to become creative and be aware of how it all comes through. I like challenges like that. Here I added a "spray" of pearls centers to flow over the page. And packaging is anchoring the photo and elements for both sides of the clear page.
Double dipped and it works!
Each and every page is so unique and yet they all work so well within the book as a whole. I sprayed each page with the glimmer mist so the colors all stay muted and aged. It flows so well together...
I hope this inspires you to go create a mini piece of art of your own. Get creative and enjoy the process!
