‘Unusual’ Mini Album Blog Hop

*Appologies…Blogger does not want to let my links work, although the addresses are correct!!*
Welcome to the Unusual Mini Album Blog Hop, hosted by Scrapbooking Technique!

The aim of this hop is to inspire you all into doing more with your mini-albums.

The hop starts at Scrapbooking Technique, (www.scrapbookingtechnique.blogspot.com) and goes through 9 inspiring blogs…there may even be some blog candy up for grabs along the way to!

So here is my take on an ‘unusual mini-album’…it all started with a plain white, metal tin…

I covered it in multi-medium, and torn bookpages, then a watered down coating of acrylic paint.

To get the brick effects, I had a brick wall embossing folder. Before running it through the machine, I brushed over the raised ‘cement lines’ of the inside of the folder with a brown inkpad. This then left not only the raised bricks but the coloured cement too.

I used Tim Holtz dies to cut the hinges and lock on the tin. They were inked black, embossed in dark brown, but not a full covering, and then I added stickles for the highlights.
I also cut out some flowers from the new Authentique papers, to add around the tin.

Inside, the album is folded up, to be opened one flap at a time. It goes through photos of my Daughter from birth to now, 6 years. Again I used Authentique papers, along with lace, punched borders, flowers and crystals.

By using all black and white photos, i was able to use any papers i liked, and make it all co-ordinate.

Well I hope you’ve enjoyed viewing this unusual mini-album, now pop along to www.pammejo-scrapbookflair.com
