Love My Dad mini album








This is a project to answer Ryan's second request. He wanted me to create a welcome home gift for his daddy. Well, since Father's Day is just next month, I thought I could do a two in one gift. So here's a mini thick chipboard display accordian album that I've created for him. It is meant for his dad to display it on his office table and that's the reason why I've kept the colours masculine and suitable for his office display.
I've first painted all the chipboard pieces in white and grey acrylic paint. Then I've used some stamps to stamp on them. I've kept it in a monochromatic colour scheme hoping the photographs would be the center of attention. I've added numerous rub-ons, printed journaling on vellums, sticker quotes, doodled and metal embellishment.
Ryan will be crossing out his last day of being apart from his dad on his calendar tonight and he is so excited to see his dad again tomorrow morning.
