Welcome to my post for AALL & Create where today I have made an accordion album.
Here's how I made it:
First I made the mat for my little cards would go on. I decorated the outside a little. First I toned it down with white paint and a brayer. Next I used this stencil to add interest. I used Distress Oxide ink for this.
Next I used the text stamp of this set to stamp allover the back and the front. I also added some doodling with a black fine liner.
I added a title, replacing the word 'heart' with a pink heart.
Next the background for my cards. I used Distress Oxide inks to dunk and dry until I was happy. (Broken China and Fossilized Amber).
I then used the same stencil and the same inks to add more detail.
Again, I used the same text stamp + one from the bottom set to add more texture to the cards.
Stamped the images for the focal points next.
Here you see I added them together with some sentiments from the same sets, some washi tape and pieces of fabric. I also added black lines.
They are now ready for the cover mat.
I think it looks fab! Pleased with it.
