I had SO much fun with the kit this month. I love it! No surprise really that it sold out in about three days!
This is the mini that I have made:
And now for the inside... lots of details and photos coming up :)
Pages One & Two
For the inside cover, I tried to make a sky effect by first painting the chipboard with white acrylic paint, and then splodging over the Distress Ink. I then just added a photo mat, some flowers and Liquid Pearls (you all know how much I love them).
The right hand page is a simple page, with a punched border holding in a selection of photo mats and tags.
Pages Three and Four
On the left hand side, I used my Nesties to make a circular photo mat, which I them simply embellished with a hand made flower, and a tag tucked behind the photo mat.
The right hand side is another pocket page.
I loved the paper on the left hand page so much that I didn't want to cover it much, so I simply painted the chipboard flourish from the kit with white acrylic paint, added some Distress Stickles, and made a flower with the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die, and the flourish holds the tags in place.
I also made an acetate page, where I just used my Crop a Dile Big Bite to set some flowers with eyelets, and then inked the edges with Black Stazon.
On the right hand page, I added some of the Magic Mesh from the May Kit, then used one of the ATC sized designs from this month's kit as a photo mat, which also hides more tags and tickets behind. I decorated this flourish with white acrylic paint and Petal Pink Liquid Pearls.
Two simple pages - swivel out photo mats on the left hand side, and simply flowers and Liquid Pearls to make a framed page on the right hand side.
On the left hand side, I simply made a top note with design paper, tied around some of the lace from the kit and added a trinket pin (thanks Club Member Sandie for the idea on using the trinket pin!). I made the top note into a pocket to hold another photo mat, and added one of the Snippets at the top for a title.
On the right hand side, I used up my scraps to decorate one of the envelopes from the kit, which holds tags both inside and behind.
Finally, I simply added a locket that I die cut from artists mount board on the back.
