Wow. ARTastic are having a cyber crop. You will love this one. It is about shapes. Easy subject matter.
I wanted to do something really fun. I chose to make a mini album for my son's 22nd birthday. He has moved to Sydney to work. Very sad about that, but a great opportunity for him.
I had a Kaisercraft circle chipboard album that I thought would work. I also chose a couple of 6x6 paper packs to draw from. Blue and red seemed a great colour combination for a 22 year old guy.
Firstly, I used some Semco soft blue acrylic paint to give 3 coats of paint to one side of each circle.
I chose complementary papers and covered the other sides using Mod Podge. I also punched some stars from the offcuts of the papers.
Last thing was to choose embellishments. I wanted to keep it simple. I used die cuts, ribbon and stickers. I put the whole thing together using a jump ring.
I love how it turned out. I hope it make it to him in the post in one piece. I miss him a lot.
