A few more inspirations...
I recently made this mini for a class at Scrapp n' Savvy. I thought it was perfect for the few 4th pictures I would be taking or perhaps as a military memory book. Whatever the reason, it was fun to make:
I began with a pre-made mini (which I so rarely do) that was a mixed media book. It contained chipboard, watercolor paper, acrylic, cardboard, and more. I loved working with all the different substrates. Some of the pages were painted. Others were stenciled. I even stitched on one! Full of pockets and tags it will hold more than I expected.
You know I LOVE Gecko Galz. I love that there are so many images to sooth my creative mind. And I can do anything with them! Well, I found that I needed some small note cards that were rather generic but pretty. So, off to Gecko Galz. I found these images in this month's kit and they were perfect. It is a sheet of them. I trimmed them to fit on small notecards and double matted them. Added some thin twine and stickle and DONE! Perfect. The recipients have loved them too. It looks like I spent some time making them but in reality I think I was done in half an hour! LOVE.
And this. I cannot express how pleased at the end product of this layout. I think a huge part is I love the subject matter! Hehe. I made this with some of the papers from Authentique's Durable line. Really smitten with those papers! Had a blast making the chipboard gears look like real, rusty metal gears! Lots of mixed media techniques. It looks awesome framed and hanging in the gameroom.
Well, I hear stirrings in the house which means I better get a move on! I hope you have a great day. Inspire someone today!
