Winter's Butterfly Album

I have wanted to do a mini album with the Bo Bunny journal packet for awhile. I guess I was waiting for the perfect paper & here it is! Midnight Frost, even the name is great. I started by running a piece of metal through THoltz's texture fade, than painted it with black acrylic paint. Once it slightly dry I wiped off the access leaving the majority in the debossed parts. Time for alcohol ink! Using blues & purples the metal was covered by dabbing in different directions.
The chipboard tree was inked & stamped & ARTc beads were glued on it. The journal pages were adhered to chipboard & made the perfect background. My title is Thickers cool sparkly chipboard alphabets. Here Tim's filmstrip was used with some index prints. I added a metal embossed snowflake that was cut out & inked.
Heat embossed stamped title & flourishes were used on this page, along with a dazzle flower & some bling. I spritzed THoltz's flowers with glimmer mist & added pearls.
More heat embossing, as well as using distress powder for the branch. Most of the stamps I used in this album are either Tim's or Tattered Angels. The snow flake glimmer chip is also Tattered Angels, with a spritz of glimmer mist. The Holtz die cut chipboard bird was heat embossed & stamped, a technique I will be teaching at ScrapbooksPlus soon so keep an eye out for it.
This page had more embossing with the pine tree & snow flake stamps, some dew drops & an alcohol inked, embossed piece of acrylic. I added a bird charm.
A mat was painted with white acrylic & than crackle paint added on top with some more ARTc beads, along with the photo. I cut the other side using Tim's snow edge die cut & blinged it up using some Bo Bunny embellishments.
The little wood birdie was distressed & stamped with silver heat embossing. My sleepy sons page has a boarder punch snow flake chain, some bling, & a sticker from the kit.
Ok so my students know when I Glimmer Mist, I put a paper towel down to catch the extra nummy, glimmery, splatter. The photo mat is used from leftover paper towel-super shimmery. Some more stamping & distressing. The acrylic sheet is the cover of the journal packet. I added the photo & put a border of stickles around it.
The opposite side of the acrylic is the same. Added some journaling on the last page. The back is the same technique as the front, using a texture fade. I used rings with ribbons & fibers to bind the album. This was a fun album to make & I plan on designing another for a class. Let me know if you are interested.
