Go where your heart takes you.. a small tag album

Hello everyone,

and welcome to my blog where today I am sharing another project for AALL & Create and today it is a little tag album. It could also be used for photos of anything else. I didn't even measure it but eyeballed it.


and here is how:


First I used this die to cut some white card stock out. I just did the bottom and the top as I didn't want to used the whole die cut. I then glued them onto my cover which is a piece of card stock that I scored so I got three panels. 


I painted the whole thing in two shades of green and then added pigment powders to the die cut areas. I used greens and blues. (Infusions and Nuvo). I spritzed them with water and let them do their thing. I like how grungy that looks. 


Next I added stamping, using green, turquoise and black inks.


The inside was treated in the same way minus the die cuts but I did add some black lines to the edges. I added a little pocket for stuff to sit in. 


Next I worked on my little bonus tag to go inside. I stamped the Wellington boot and the bear and coloured them with Copic Markers, then cut them out. 



The tag was also treated the same way; paint, stamping and I added some washi tape. I placed the bear into the boot and glued the whole thing onto the tag. Lastly I added another sentiment. 
All the words are from Tim Holtz chat stickers. 


Here is the tag, placed into the pocket.


The back of the book, I did cut two slits in the middle panel for a piece of ribbon so I could close the album.

This is what it looks like when it is closed.
