10. A Mini Album Cover & Video - kreative koncepts / Scrap Friends

Thursday, April 10, 2014

Hi everyone!  This is the tutorial process video I am sharing on the kreative koncepts/Scrap Friends blog today!

I decided to do something a little different.  Instead of a scrapbook layout, I
decorated a piece of thin canvas for a mini album cover.  My daughter recently
turned 10 years old and I wanted to do something to document it!  I want to
make a page for each birthday or just one from each month of her 9th year...
Either way, I knew I wanted to do a cover piece & play with some stamps and stencils.


I used several papers with text or subtle patterns to make a collage background.
Then I did some stamping and used a 6x6 stencil with this lovely iridescent
modeling cream on top of the collage.  I added more layers including a doily
underneath a scalloped wood veneer that I embossed with gold.  I wanted to
make the cover really layered and full of texture, but simple at the same time!

The video below shows a sped up version of my process and the products I used!  



These are a couple close up photos to show the details.

I hope you enjoy the video and are inspired to try a little something
different for your next mini album, canvas, or even on a layout!

Thanks for stopping by and letting me share my process,
