Happy Wednesday everyone, I have been happily avoiding the heat holed up in my nicely air-conditioned house crafting a mini album I’d like to share with you today. As I mentioned before mini albums make great gifts so I thought to celebrate my girlfriend's upcoming birthday with an album featuring some photos I took while we were on a recent camping trip.
The creative possibilities for mini albums are endless. This album is called the “Rebel Sprout” it’s from Punky Sprouts http://punkysprouts.com/index.html. One of the cool aspects of this album is you can mix and match the pages in any order your heart desires. I really like the idea of the different layers of materials poking out. I used this as my platform for titling the album. This album allowed me to do lots of playing – I misted, sewed by hand and with my machines, and layered rubons. I generally consider myself to be a more clean lined scrapbooker, this mini album was a great canvas for me to go a bit “hog wild” and out of my comfort zone.
