The Scraps Of Elegance October Kit~Tiffany's Style contained lots of the Prima Royal Menagerie Line and that line definitely has a Mixed Media Vibe to it so I decided to create a Mixed Media Mini Album that shows off that side of the kit!
I started with a Prima 4 x 6 Canvas Album, I then sprayed the whole outside with Tim Holtz Peacock Distress Spray Stain, and Tim Holtz Seedless Preserves Distress Spray Stain, .
I then took the Lavender Glitter that was in the kit and went around the edging of the album. I then went back in with Reneabouquets Chunky Teal Glitter Glass, and Silver Microbeads to add in a contrasting color and texture.
I painted a piece of the Blue Fern Chipboard from this month's Elements Add On with Prima White Crackle Texture Paste, let that dry, then painted over the crackle randomly with some Lindy's Magicals that came in a past kit, and added more of the RB Glitter Glass and Silver Microbeads.
I took some of the kit paper, distressed the edges and added it to the cover, cut out the "There are so many beautiufl reasons to be Happy" quote, rolled the edges and then added some purple rope that my scrappy sister Phyllis Fernandez had gifted me.
At the top corner, I added some cheesecloth, some Prima flowers from the kit and this month's Floral Add on, and dry brushed some of the Lindy's onto one of the Prima Resin Shells from the Elements Add On.
I added more of the same to the bottom corner.
I distessed and inked some of the kit paper with Tim Holtz Seedless Preserves Distress Ink, die cut one of the journaling cards from the EAO, added some Butterfly Lace, a Reneabouquets Mini Teal Texture Rose, a Camellia Teal Flower, and one of the Prima flowers from the FAO.
In between each set of pages, I used the clear pockets from the album. There is a total of 4 of these clear pockets and they are perfect for sliding photos into, or small memorabilia and journling pieces.
I covered one of the canvas pages that come with the album with kit paper and ran some of the twine down the side. I then took a canvas page, misted it with Tim Holtz Broken China Distress Spray Stain then stenciled it with a Prima Stencil and Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Spray Stain, tied hand died seam binding through the page holes and then turned it into a pocket to house 7 of the double sided journaling cards and used a clip to hold them together.
Here is a shot of all the journaling cards.
I layered some of the kit paper ontot the canvas page, then cut a gate fold, and used some of my Book Latches to form a closure system.
You can unlatch the closure system and open it up for lots of space to put photos or journaling.
I misted one of the canvas pages with the same Prima stencil and the Peacock Distress Spray Stain. I then created a pocket out of the kit paper, added a piece of the Blue Fern Chipboard with the same painting and techniques as the front piece, popped on one of the sweet Prima paper clips from the kit, then created 2 double side tags from some of the journaling cards, seam binidng and flowers from the FAO.
I covered the page with kit paper, inked and ran some Delicate Beauty Lace down the side, and ran some more of the rope along the top and bottom edgets. I added a Prima Resin Swirl, and created 2 grunged up corrugated board photo spots, and added flowers for to the corners.
This page features another kit paper pocket, another little paper clip from the kit, a Prima Metal Clock Face with Prima Metal Clock Hands and topped with one of the Pearls fromt he kit. I created 2 double sided tags by taking the Prima tags from the kit, distressing and inking them, then misting them with Tim Holtz Seedless Preserves Distress Spray Stain, and some clear shimmer my IRL friend Tracy Mercer gave me and then topping them with hand dyed seam binding bows and Reneabouquets Mini Teal Texture Roses, and then tucked in one of the journaling cards that I distressed and inked.
Here you can see those pieces untucked.
More kit paper topped with an inked Doily piece and a flower from the FAO.
Another page with kit paper, a die cut spot, butterfly lace, cheesecloth, Camillia flower, Prima flower from the FAO, and mini texture rose. The "love with all your heart" quote was cut from the kit papers.
I then binded all the pages together with the hand dyed seam binding, pulled it through the binding, and tied bows, then tied more rope, and teal binding to those pieces and added a glass, corked vile of my Reneabouquets Chunky Teal Glitter Glass, topped it with one of the mini texture roses and a "dream" sentiment cut from the kit paper.
Here you can see all my Chunky Layers and how the mini ties closed with hand dyes seam binding.
Here is a shot of the backside.
OK, I am now exhausted!! Those mini albums are a lot of work and going through all the details is just as extensive!! I hope you have enjoyed my complete walk through of my Mini Mixed Media piece of art!! I hope you have a wonderful week!! Hugs ~Renea
