Little Dude Mini Album



This is my third guest designing project for Mon Scrapbook.Com. It’s an acrylic mini accordion album that I’ve created using Clear Scraps acrylic coasters.

Here are the steps to it.
Use three acrylic coasters to make the base for this minialbum.

Front Cover:
1) Cover half of the front cover with pattern paper.
2) Stamp a clock and compass image to it using solvent ink.
3) I’ve printed a car image from the computer and distress the edges using the "Extreme Punching to Distress" technique. Add it to the page.
4) Add some crackle paint on its lower and upper left. I’ve used the "Crackle Paint on Acrylic" technique to add crackle paint on its lower right.
5) I’ve stamped on the word “little” using solvent ink and highlight it using a white gel pen.
6) The word “dude” had been cut out from the Memento pattern paper and pastes it onto a mini ghost frame. I’ve highlight the edges of the frame with a black pen. Use some brads to add it to the page.
7) Add a circle sticker to it and use a black pen to doodle around it.
8) Lastly, add a metal spinner and gear to the page.

Crown Page:
1) Distress the photograph using the scissors distressing technique and add it to the page.
2) Use the “Crackle Paint on Acrylic” technique to add some crackle paint to its upper left and lower right.
3) Add a small circle sticker to its lower left and use so
me paint markers to draw some lines on it.
4) I’ve used the Cuttlebug to cut out and emboss the crown on pattern paper. Sand the embossed crown using a sanding block.

Back Cover:
1) I’ve printed another car sketch image from the computer and distress it using the extreme punching technique. Ink its edges with distress ink and add it to the page.
2) Stamp the clock and the word image using solvent ink on the page.
3) Add some crackle paint to its lower right using the “Crackle Paint on Acrylic” technique.

Love Page:

1) Distress the edges of the photograph using the scissors distressing technique and ink it with distress ink. Paste it to the page.
2) Stamp the word “joy” on the photograph using solvent ink.
3) Add some crackle paint to its upper right.
4) Cut out a circle from the pattern paper and paste it to its lower right.
5) Add a strip of ribbon across the bottom of the page and a button to its left.
6) Use the "Ink on Vinyl" technique to colour the vinyl circle and add it to the right.
7) The word “love’ is cut out from the pattern paper.

Car Page:
1) Add a piece of printed screen or transparency onto the page.
2) Distress the photograph using the scissors distressing technique and ink it with distress ink. Add it to the page.
3) Add some crackle paint to its upper left of the photograph.
4) Use the “Ink on Vinyl” technique to colour the three vinyl circles and add it to the page.
5) The word “car” is created using alpha stickers.

Cheeky Page:
1) Add a piece of pattern paper to the page.
2) Distress the photograph using the scissors distressing technique and ink its edges with distress ink. Add it to the page.
3) Add some crackle paint to the lower right of the page.
4) Colour the vinyl scroll using the “Ink on Vinyl” technique and add it to the lower left of the page. Dress it up with some liquid pearls.
5) The word “cheeky” are cut out from the pattern paper.

To bind all pages together, punch some holes on the edges and tie them together using some ribbons.

Ryan’s huge interest in cars had inspired me to create this mini album for him.

My workshop in Kuala Lumpur had been great and I’ve managed to get to know some wonderful new scrapping friends there. I’ll share the pictures of the project soon.
