Touch of Spring Mini Album
The Songbird collection is probably one of my most favorite Prima collections ever! I love birds and when I saw all the soft pretty images, I knew these gorgeous papers would be perfect for my mini album.
I used the beautiful color combination found in the papers of mint, peach and ivory. I added lace, crystals and ribbon to create a feminine theme throughout the book.
The pages are filled with beautiful flowers, wood embellishments and crystals. I have left many of my pages blank to add my photos and journaling for an event I am attending this summer.
I love using layering techniques to add interest and dimension to my pages.
I used foiling to add a bit of soft shimmer to my tag.
Wood embellishments and lace take center stage.
The last page of my book features a pure and simple foiled butterfly outline with beautiful copper foiling. Adding foil with Christine Adolph’s Rub-Ons is quick and easy…the hardest part is deciding on the color of the foil. I hope you will give some of these techniques a try on your next project.
