Mini for Mummy

It's been a long time since my last post as I had been busy and couldn't find time to take photo when it was not raining. Finally I managed to catch some golden sun today after so many days of afternoon rain, so I quickly had this mini album photographed and tonight I get some moments to blog about it.

I had been altering things and making scrap stuff here and there for people and thought I should make something for my mom. So I set about choosing photos (the hardest part as there are so many!) and defining the moments before putting them into this little album. There are never enough pages for books like this, I'd say!

Here are the pictures.  I love this album because, again, it has lots of experimental stuff that I tried and I find that it is like an archive of both memories and progress.  Ms E loves the book because she would take the book and flip almost every night.

I won't show all the pages, but here are some that I would like to show.


Materials : Album - Me & My Big Ideas; Papers - Prima Annalee; Stamps - Fiskars, Purple Onion;  Embellishments - Making Memories, K&Co,, Tim Holtz, Ribbons, Handmade flowers, Basic Grey, KCK, Glitz Girls.

work in progress

Hi all, been a bit 'quiet' with the updates as I have been working on a mini and experimenting as usual.

Here's a little something that I have been working on. Painting background with glitter glue and finishing with a very thin layer of clear crackle paint before the glitter glue totally dries up.  The crackle medium then picks up the bits of glitter as it crackles up.
