Hi everyone!!! Last Saturday was National Scrapbook Day for many of us and I managed to convince my family to give me a bit of a break so I could play with my supplies. I found a fun challenge over on Scrapbook.com and decided to participate. The challenge was to make a mini album featuring yourself. I love mini albums so this was right up my alley. Lots of great products from the Your Memories Here store made the album come together quickly.
I started with some plain canvas, three of my favorite colors of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist and a water sprayer.
The first thing I did was spray my fabric with water to dampen.
Then I began spraying with color. Starting with the darkest color, the one I wanted on the bottom.....
then adding my next color, being sure to overlap a bit....
And finally the color I wanted on top.
I then took a 1 inch paintbrush and blended the colors. After all the water and mist, the fabric was quite damp and it was easy to blend the colors just how I wanted.
Here is my final, dyed fabric. Starting with a damp fabric really helps the colors flow and blend.
From there, I dry brushed a bit of white paint over the top and inked the edges. I glued the fabric to chipboard for the cover of my album and with the help of my Bind it All....
a few Prima flowers and leaves, a Prima Journaling Card, Prima alphabet, and some gorgeous Vintage Trinkets and my album was finished.
I will be back tomorrow to share the inside pages. Not all of them are complete and some of the journaling is a secret...but you know me...I love to share!
Hope you are having a great day!
