Mini Album ~ Memories ♥

       Good evening ♥
       It has been hectic for past few days but somehow I managed to put together a Mini Album for my friend's birthday!! Yep, you heard it right, my first ever Mini Album & I'm so much in love with it. I am definitely gonna make more in the future ♥

       I had always wanted to make one & recently my friend Riswana made one herself & I loved it a lot. So I tried my hand at it too & I enjoyed making this one.
       I'm not gonna go into details on how I made this because there are so many tutorials available online; many of which helped me to create this Album.

       It is an album with 12 pockets inside holding 12 tags, one for each month of the year. I wanted it like that, so that it can be filled with the best memory of each month.

       So let me just explain how I made the outer decor. Initially, I gave a layer of gesso coating to make the surface a bit rough. 

       Used Ranger texture paste with Mini cubist stencil to create some texture & Tim Holtz stencil to write the words RISWANA & MEMORIES. 

       Pasted 6 plastic flowers & added some tiny glitter beads to give more texture. Colored the cover with shades various of blue acrylic paint (Color is much more darker & richer in reality with the various shades visible~ couldn't capture any of that in photos). Added Inka Gold in gold to give some highlights.

       These are the White embossed sentiments on the 12 pockets inside & the tags for each month ♥

       I really enjoyed making this & much more than that, her happiness on receiving this Album ♥♥♥
