Mixed Media Mini Album

FC Mini(14)

Hello Everyone!

I’m going to share with you my last project as a Guest Design Team member for Faber Castell Design Memory Craft!  I’ve had a wonderful time and I wanted to thank Faber Castell for the opportunity! I hope the readers enjoyed my projects as much as I enjoyed making them!

For my last project I decided to make a mini album. I’ve never actually made a mini before because I found it daunting to have to create so many different, yet cohesive pages. Well I wanted to challenge myself and I decided to approach it with a “formula”J  I used my Stamper’s Big Brush Pens, Gelatos™ and Essential PITT™ Artist pens to help me along.

First I took the chipboard mini and covered all the pages with gesso. Next I approached all the pages in the same order:

First I colored an area of the page with one color of my Stamper’s Big Brush Pen then spritzed over the color with water. I let the india ink drip in whatever direction I wanted then heat dried it. I colored in the same area with a different Stamper’s Big Brush pen and again sprayed with water. The colors blend very nicely together!

Next I put washi tape down, then I took my metallic Gelatos™ and colored on the washi tape and blended with my fingers.

I stamped using the same Stamper’s Big Brush pen as the color in the background for tone on tone effect.

A bit more stamping this time using my PITT™ Artist pen…

I used vellum stars on each page which I outlined using my Essential PITT™ Artist pen.

Lastly I doodled and journaled on my pages also using the Essential PITT™ Artist pen followed by some acrylic paint splatters.

I’m definitely going to be making more minis in the future!

So with that I say Good bye! And of course…Happy New Year!!

MiaeMiae Rowe Sometime ago I discovered this thing called scrapbooking and it's fair to say I'm an addict! I love color, I love texture, I love putting all that together! Life with my Aussie husband and our 2 daughters is full of plenty of adventures for me to photograph and get creative with...fodder for the fuel!
