Inspired by My Trash

Hi everyone, as promised I am here today with a mini album I was inspired to make for the Your Memories Here blog.  I became inspired when I came across some corrugated cardboard while unwrapping some sheets for Ainsley's room redo.  Guess it is a good thing the sheets had extra packaging.  hee hee Funny the things that inspire us sometimes.
Prima Flights of Fancy, Fairytale roses, mini roses, Sweet Taffy , Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist.  
I stripped some of the paper off the cardboard, painted it white and then spritzed on a bit of Glimmer Mist to color the base.  I added some beautiful Prima butterflies from a piece of the Flights of Fancy paper, stickers from the same collection, some lovely Prima flowers,  gorgeous lace, and a bit of a flourish and a Tattered Angels tag that I also colored with Glimmer Mist.

I filled my mini with more beautiful Prima papers from both the Flights of Fancy and Pastiche collections, fussy cutting many butterflies from the Miss Pretty butterfly sheet.

I used a few different colors of Glimmer Mist and a paint brush to color my tag to coordinate with my mini album as well as color my seam binding.

 Just because you only have a small sheet of paper, don't not use it.  This scrap was just large enough to be a 1/2 page in my book.  I think different sized pages help keep things interesting.
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, Prima Stamps, Sweet Taffy Flower, Mni Rose
One of my new favorite things to do is to mist old book pages with a cream glimmer mist and then use some stamps to accent the page.  Since the paper is a little thin to bind, I added a strip of paper to the edge to increase the weight.
As usual, I have no idea what I am going to use the album for, but I loved making it and sharing it with you.
