Altered Photo Book

It’s a great month for a Color Challenge!!! If you had not noticed, every month is a good day for a color challenge with Lindy’s Stamp Gang!! The colors this month are some of my favorite combinations. Blues, pinks, browns. Love them!! I created photo book that can hold multiple photo’s and cards for journaling. I love flowers and butterflies and had to incorporate both on the cover. Once the whole album was done, I sprayed it with Creme Brulee Cream Starburst Spray. It gave it a light golden sparkle to the entire cover.

Lindy’s embossing powder can be applied to just about anything. I painted the metal key with white gesso, sprayed it with Sandra Dee Sepia Flat Fabio Spray, then heat embossed some Midnight Bronze Embossing Spray  in random spots on the key. I added the rhinestone to dress it up a bit, and match the gorgeous pink in the flowers and ribbon. The leaves were die cut and sprayed with Time Travel Teal Starburst Spray and toned down with a bit of Sandra Dee Sepia Flat Fabio.

The flowers were sprayed with Sandra Dee Sepia and Plumeria Pink  Flat Fabio. They are just plain white flowers I stripped from a silk flower stem, I purchased at Hobby Lobby.

I tied the album together using ribbon that I sprayed with Plumeria Pink Flat Fabio spray.

Here is a close up of the ribbon. It is silk ribbon that started off a light beige color. Silk soaks up the color beautifully and leaves it soft and subtle. Unlike other sprays that can leave the ribbon stiff.

This is the inside of the photo album. I picked papers in my stash to match the colors in the color challenge. This is DCWV, the Happy Day stack.

I also found butterflies in my collection that matched the colors and just enhanced the pinks a bit by painting them with Plumeria Pink Flat Fabio. Once it was dried, I covered the butterflies with Clear Crackle medium which made the colors vibrant. The frame started out a silver color. I painted it with white gesso, sprayed it with Sandra Dee Sepia Flat Fabio Spray, then heat embossed it with the Midnight Bronze embossing powder. It came out beautiful!! Lindys embossing powders are simply luxurious.

I used a Dusty Attic Chipboard and simply heat embossed it with Midnight Bronze embossing powder. No priming needed. I love the 2 toned effect the embossing powders have .

This is just a close up of the waterfall feature. There is plenty of room for photo’s.

Why don’t you give it a shot at the March Color Challenge this month. You could win a $50.00 Gift certificate to the Lindy’s Stamp Gang Store!!
