Sugar & Spice Mini Album (Page 7, 8 and back cover)




Here's page 7, 8 and the back cover of the Sugar & Spice mini album. I've used Clear Scraps acrylic flower tab album in this project.
Steps to create page 7.
1) Cover the scallops or tabs with pattern papers and ink it's edges with distress ink.
2) Use a piece of Prima's note paper and ink it's edges with distress ink. Paste it on the left of the page.
3) Cut out a square piece from a pattern paper and ink it's edge with distress ink. Layer it on the right of the page slightly overlapping the note paper.
4) Distress the photograph using the scissors distressing technique and add a photo corner on it's upper left. Add it to the page.
5) Add a rub-on border at the bottom of the photograph and doodle some faux stitches on it's right with a black pen.
6) Mat the quote onto an olive card stock and cut it out. Ink it with distress ink and paste it on the lower right of the page.
7) Use the "Circle Flowers" technique to create the flowers and add a strip of rick rack at the bottom of the page.
Steps to create page 8.
1) Cover the scallops or tabs with pattern papers and ink it's edges with distress ink.
2) Attach the photograph in the middle of the page and trim it's corners to fit the page.
3) Cut out a small piece with scallops on it's upper edges from a pattern paper. Ink it's edges with distress ink and paste it on the upper right of the photograph. Use a white pen to doodle a circle on it too.
4) Use a pair of grungeboard wings and ink it with distress ink and later add some glossy accents to it. Add a small chipboard clock in the middle of it and a button to dress it up. Ink the chipboard clock with distress ink first. Add this whole piece on the upper right of the photograph.
5) Cut out another small rectangular piece from a pattern paper and ink it's edges with distress ink. Add it to the lower left of the photograph.
6) Paste a quote on the lower left of the photograph too and use a black pen to doodle some faux stitches to it.
7) Use some paint markers to doodle some borders on the bottom of the photograph.
Steps to create the back cover.
1) Use the "Masking using Acrylic Paints on Acrylic" technique to mask the scallops around the back cover.
2) Cover the scallops or tabs with pattern paper and ink it's edges with distress ink.
3) Add a strip of mesh across the cover and another strip of pink card stock on top of it. Ink the edges of the card stock with distress ink first.
4) Cut a few small pieces from some coordinating pattern papers and paste them horizontally making a strip. Use a black pen and doodle some faux stitches in between them.
5) Cut out some flowers from pattern papers and add them to the cover. Ink the edges of the flowers with distress ink.
6) Use an acrylic flower from Clear Scraps and add some colours to it using some paint markers.
Whew! I hope everyone had enjoyed all the tutorials through this few days. As requested by some of you, I'll be posting another post with the full album and the pages together. So, do check back tomorrow.
