Sharing the Love

Hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day.

Just now getting around to sharing the project I made for Mitch. I am actually beginning to feel human again!

I used a Maya Road Arrow Binder that I had in my stash, recently purchased Kelly Panacci patterned paper, various rubons, American Crafts Remarks, my Slice, Fiskars Punch, American Crafts Precision Pens, brown paint and Modge Podge.

Here are a few in process shots. I traced the arrows onto my patterned paper, cut them out, adhered with Modge Podge & then sanded down the edges. I followed the same steps for the inside pages except that I alternated paper and painting. In the past when I've worked with little albums like this I've run into the problem of them getting too fat. So, that is why I alternated paper & paint to cut down on bulk.

If you have any questions just leave a comment!
