Simple Joys with “Simply Shapely” Mixed Media Album02 June 2012 | By Veronica in Birds, Dress Forms, Hearts, Mini Albums & Journals, Uncategorized
Hey all, its me again Veronica Johnson!
I had a blast making this album! I think this might be one of my favorite Basically Bare albums to use … why? Because it is so easy and the pages make you “think outside the box.” You get acrylic, chipboard, cardboard, canvas, and felt pages to alter anyway you like. Of course I just love it because I am all about using different textures.
For my cover I took the acrylic page that came in the mini and cut it short, then embossed it with my folders and inked it with alcohol.
In order to “ground” my title, I used the chipboard frame embellies and first painted it white then used “frantage” chunky enamel embossing powder on it
This is the back of my acrylic page. Remember whatever you stick on the front will always show up on the back so I mirrored my chipboard frame (that I painted white) by adding my felt frame
On this page I used the canvas heart embellie that I colored with Kuretake fabric pens. I love using canvas, it makes me happy.
Look how totally sweet my chipboard birdie turned out. All I did was emboss it with my embossing folder, then ink the edges a bit. Notice my wing on my matt? I covered the chipboard wing with pretty pink paislee paper. I also used a felt flower from my Blossoms and Leaves set and misted it with glimmer mist. I like this page
Oh, my lovely canvas page!! One of the reasons I LOVE this canvas page is because I can add LOTS OF LAYERS! Can you tell? Well, I did. But … this time I layered with my masks using glimmer mist, then I stamped several images on the background.
The Dressforms are definately one of my favorites! I covered it with lace and made a dress out of the 7 Gypsies tissue paper.
Here I used the cardboard heart and tore off the first layer to make it more grungy. I also used a small chipboard frame and also the felt key from my “Lovely Locket Set”
I added/layered a cork heart to the key top.
On this page, I covered my chipboard wing from the Bare Basics “Wing” set with Graphic 45
Look how cute my felt birdie is. Usually I would have glimmer misted my felt but this time I just inked it a little bit and used a cork piece for the wing. I layered the felt birdie on a chipboard flower from “blossoms and leaves” and also used a canvas leaf from that same set. I colored my leaf with Kuretake.
I always like to add some frill on my album spine so as you can see I added a couple of metal keys, some ribbon and oh look an acrylic birdie that has been alcohol inked and embossed.
