Pinspiration Mini Album

I am WAY excited for this little album! Everyone loves Pinterest, and everyone seems to be inspired by it. I thought I would put my favorite ‘pins’ in an album, something I can have on my desk, right at my finger tips. Here’s a before and after…

I started by covering the word “LOVE” and the base, with washi tape. I did that because I wanted to paint them both. I mixed some Yes Paste with Mica Powders from Lindy’s Stamp Gang. I used a plastic card to paint the paste onto the base and I set it aside to dry for 24 hours. After the word was wrapped, I took Delphinium Turquoise and dripped it onto the word. I started at the top, and dropped some along the edges of each letter. I didn’t want to make a mess, but, I did want some areas to be darker, dripping the color on, instead of spraying it on, allowed me more control.

Once the cover and the base were done, I went to work on the tabs. I have these really awesome stamps from KI Memories called Verbology. They are no longer available in store, but, I’ve managed to find some on Ebay. I have several different sets of those stamps, and they were perfect for the tabs. I picked five different categories that I was most likely to use; Color, Design, Sew, Give and Party. I’ve stamped the words onto acrylic with Staz-On

Printing the images was a little tedious, but, I was committed! I took a screen shot with my cell phone, then I loaded the photos into Diptic and created a collage consisting of four images. From the app, I emailed the collage to myself, then opened them up in Photoshop. I arranged enough photos onto one 8.5″X11″ page so that it was covered. There were approximately 30 photos on each printed page. I used Yes Paste to adhere the photos to the chipboard, I also used it as a sealant after I was finished applying photos.
