I love how this mini turned out. I have really been enjoying making the mini albums. This one is a paper bag album.
The flourish is a sizzix die. I used chipboard, painted it black, applied crackle accent, and then used some gold rub n buff. As you can tell I used some Tim Holtz corners, hitch post, and chain.
The glitter frame is from Making Memories. The lock and key is a sizzix die. I used gold embossing powder on the key. I painted the lock black and used some black embossing powder. I didn't cover the whole lock with embossing powers so it would look a bit distressed.
I love the Tim Holtz alteration dies. I painted them black and used some rub n buff. I picked up a bunch of shipping tags at Staples. I used distress ink on the edges and to stamp my images.
The little key was painted black and then crackle accent was applied and then some rub nn buff. I also used rub n buff on the flower. I made the stick pen from some crystals and pearls from my stash.
I even made a little fold out that fits in the pocket.
I used a border cut out from my stash and used some more tags.
I cut a dollie into four sections and applied rub n buff. Does anyone else love the Tim Holtz dies? I think I am slowly collecting them all. I adhered the bottom and one side of the bird cage so a picture or tag could be slipped in behind. I used gold embossing powder on the bird cage and added a small rose from I am roses.
I painted the lock and key with black paint and applied a small amount of rub and buff.
Tim Holtz on the edge die, I just love this one. Once again black paint with rub n buff and some I am Roses flowers
Another hitch was used on the back cover for the closure.
Two tags are in every bag. One side has a bold pattern for a picture and the other is plain for journaling or pictures.
